The last thing Orlando Bloom said regarding his role as Legolas in The Hobbit was that he wasn’t 100% certain that it would happen.
He will have to dye his hair blonde again because according to a post on the official Hobbit Facebook page, Bloom is confirmed to return as Legolas. Here’s what Jackson had to say:
“10 years on, I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. I look older – he doesn’t! Orlando created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas, and we’re excited to be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more.”
It is still unknown how he will fit into the story since his character isn’t mentioned in The Hobbit at all. Sure seeing Bloom reprising his iconic role is always good news.
