Orlando Bloom Confirmed For ‘The Hobbit’

Peter Jackson has confirmed that Orlando Bloom will be joining the cast of The Hobbit. Speculation had been rampant about whether the 34-year-old Bloom would be joining the cast, with some reports earlier this year mentioning the actor would be paid $1 million for a two-minute cameo.

Jackson confirmed today on Facebook that Bloom would return as Legolas. The director said, “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.”
So what are your thoughts on the return of Legolas? Part one of The Hobbit is in theaters December 19, 2012.
