Orlando Bloom has TH script, says it "looks" like he's going to be in the movies Can't Post

Collider: Are you going to appear in The Hobbit?

BLOOM: Yeah, itís looking like that. Iím really excited about going to see Pete [Jackson] again. Itís still a little up in the air, but the idea of working with Pete is fantastic. I canít actually really talk too much about it, at this point. I just was given the script to piece through, so itís quite exciting.

Collider: The whole script?

BLOOM: Yeah!

Collider: Will you have to do anything to physically prepare for that role again?

BLOOM: Are you telling me that Iíve put on weight, in the last 10 years? I just have to grow my hair really long and blonde again.

Collider: Isnít he a younger version?

BLOOM: Yeah.

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

Makes sense really. [In reply to] Can't Post

I would have been a little surprised if they hadn't brought him back in, actually.

Following protocol probably. [In reply to] Can't Post

Once Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, and MGM all announce in official casting press releases... the performers seem to be released from the "gag orders".

I am very attached to the idea of his being at home either during the Mirkwood scenes or/and at the BoFA.Sly (Big ole grin.)

Seems odd too [In reply to] Can't Post

that he would be given a complete script for just a cameo. Maybe he will be working behind the scenes like Serkis?

Full script [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it's a common thing to do. A guy who was pretty much a glorified extra in two last Harry Potter movies was given the script for both, and he didn't even have a single line. Just around 30 seconds of screentime.

(This was WB as well)

As far as Cameos go [In reply to] Can't Post

He really was present at the time wasn't he? He very well could be standing at his fathers side in the battle of five armies. If I'm not mistaken he is older then Gimli AND Aragorn, which would put him at at LEAST 150 right?

As long as he is just eye candy and not doing back flip endo triple shot whirling dervishes whilst riding Beorns back into battle I'll be happy.


Oh Yeah, Check out his Majesty.

I'd bet his role is larger then just a cameo. [In reply to] Can't Post

A Beorn ride? Sounds cool! A first person POV on top of Beorn, watching him swipe heads off Goblins with huge bear claws? What's wrong with that? Wink

Good sense of humour! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm surprised he got the entire script ... he must be throughout the movies here and there!?

I've read in the past where certain actors only get the part of the script that pertains to them...

I'm still hoping this is a small role. [In reply to] Can't Post

And this coming from a self-professed Orlando fangirl! Wink I think it makes complete sense that we'd see Legolas in Mirkwood and/or the Battle of the Five Armies. Still, I think it would be more fun to see him pop up briefly than to have a big role throughout the films.

Legolas is much older than 150 years. [In reply to] Can't Post

I am not certain if your question was real or in jest.

Although not specifically mentioned, he is said to be more than a few thousand years old. The Encyclopedia of Arda has this entry on Legolas Greenleaf. Footnote 2 on this page attempts to give more specifics.
