Orlando Bloom Joins Hobbit Cast

Orlando Bloom Hobbit

This should be great news for all you ladies out there.  Indeed, sources are claiming that Orlando Bloom is “very close” to closing a deal with producers on returning as Legolas Greenleaf in The Hobbit movies. This would be another character which is not found within the actual Hobbit novel, but it would not be a far stretch to include him in the movie, especially the 2nd one.

Legolas is the son of Thranduil (The ElvinKing), who has a rather large part within the Hobbit story.  Within the time frame of the Hobbit, Legolas is a mature, several thousand year old Elf.  Peter Jackson may integrate him further into the second movie as they look to include the Battle of the Five Armies.  Here we could see more of that handsome bow action that Bloom does so well.  We attempted to confirm these rumors with Bloom’s people, and received “no comment,” which in this business is usually a sure “yes.”

Negotiations still remain for Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, and Hugo Weaving.  It is anticipated that these will be resolved soon, but they are not quite there yet.

    God, I hope so. But he’s up there in age now (88 I think), so he might have to film his scenes in England with green screens since getting to New Zealand at his age isn’t very comfortable unless there are multiple stops on a private jet.

    if Legolas is probably there, what about Gimli?

    But… Legolas wasn’t in the books…. I feel a little uneasy about this.
