Yes! Yes! Great casting news for The Hobbit!
Director Peter Jackson has JUST announced that Legolas, more importantly, Orlando Bloom is returning! The director wrote on his Facebook wall:
"Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I'm excited to announce today that we'll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I'm thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older — and he doesn't! I guess that's why he makes such a wonderful elf."
That and his drop dead gorgeous appearance! LOLz! Just sayin'!
And yes, for all the die-hard Tolkein fans out there, Legolas ISN'T actually in the novel, but c'mon…he was one of the best characters in the Lord of the Rings series.
We think this is one of the few instances where Hollywood makes a GOOD addition to an adaptation.
Are U happy to hear that Orlando Bloom will be reprising his role as Legolas in The Hobbit?
