Orlando Bloom: The Dapper Doctor Talks 'Pirates'

Orlando Bloom continues to film new scenes for the movie The Good Doctor on Wednesday (February 2) in Venice, Calif.

The 33-year-old actor recently confirmed that he will not be joining the cast as Will Turner for the fourth installment of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides.

“No, definitely not,” Orly told MTV. “I think Will is sort of swimming around with the fish at the bottom of the ocean.”

The new film will be directed by Nine director Rob Marshall with Johnny Depp reprising his role as the infamous Jack Sparrow.

“I had a great time making those movies,” Orlando continued. “I just really wanted to do different things, but I think it’s going to be great. Whatever Johnny does, I think it’s fantastic.”

    lol i love how orlando and keira claim that they CHOSE not to return. the real fact is that disney didn’t ask for them to come back – their characters’ stories are over, it’s done. i don’t see why they have to avoid saying that by making it sound like they’re too good for the movies now or something.

  • Fact?

    I’m sure if Keira or Orlando had expressed an interest, they would have been accommodated for POTC4. I think both are speaking the truth; neither wished to reprise their role in order to move onto new challenges. Good on them, both!

  • Lily

    @ S – The Will and Elizabeth storylines are over. I love Johnny, but Pirates has had its day. Good for Orlando for doing his own thing.

  • sara

    He and Kiera both said that they didn’t want to do any more Pirates films during the press tour for POTC3.
    This isn’t news to any of their fans, it’s just news because it was brought up at Sundance. Where, I might add, Orlando got a ton of rave reviews for his work in Sympathy for Delicious.

    It doesn’t matter to me why Orlando is not in Pirates, be it his choice or the studios. All i know is that Pirates ends for me with number 3. I don’t care to see Jack Sparrow’s drunk charmer without Will’s stability, not to mention all the sexual tension. Bro-mance at sea. How much more can Jack stumple around lacking anything original? I stopped watching CSI after William Peterson left because he was the main reason i loved the show. Now, no William Turner, no me. I don’t consort with Pirates any more. I think Orlando has to grow in his acting projects like he is doing with Sympathy for Delicious, Main Street and now the Good (looking) Doctor. Best of luck Orlando. I have missed you.

  • k

    I agree with tiki. Orlando’s appeal is the reason why so many people enjoyed the series. Without him, it would be just another weird Johnny Depp film. Many of the Pirates fans I spoke to have no interest in seeing #4 without Will Turner’s character. I love Johnny, but I have yet to run to the theater to see him-except for the Pirates films, of course.

    Glad to see Orli getting out there and pursuing his dream. I wish him the best of luck.

  • Oh

    Glad to see he’s moving on to different things.

    POTC should have ended after the number 3. Now theyre just trying to make money off it. Hope it doesnt ruin the trilogy. Nah… Depp could never ruin something.

  • Flower

    thanks! Orlando! now Keira is going to be called again and i mean she will accept cause she will be a more important role like sparrow , the money can buy people haha …….i think the writers said to Orly that Will is not in the script for Pirates 4 …..but Elizabeth keep there ! so ……….Depp and Knightley for sure!

  • FroFro

    I dont think it matters if he and Keira were or were not asked. They both clearly still have careers and want to do more original things than just constantly milking an ongoing franchise. I agree that POTC should have ended at 3, but there are still going to be POTC fans that will see it regardless of what players arent there.

    To be fair, Johnny Depp has been around alot longer than the 2 of them and can afford to milk a franchise, even if it ends up flopping. JD has been doing plenty of other things since POTC3, so should Orlando and Keira be given different opportunities without people calling them hasbeens or washouts because they arent continuing on with their storyline. And also, their storyline wasnt necessarily concluded, just on hiatis. If the franchise continues to be a sucess, they could easily strap on their pirate hats again a few years from now to see how Will and Liz are doing with him still being the captain of the Dutchman. Who knows… maybe Disney will surprise us all and a few cameos may turn up to somehow get Will released from that responsibility. Hush Hush though. You didnt hear that from me, but I will happily take credit for being “in the know” if it does actually happen! LOL! Just a good guess I guess.

  • Sexy

    @FroFro: LOL. Yeah, Depp has been around for much longer than the two orly and Keira so I don’t think he won’t be able to milk the franchise without them. But I have to say I agree the franchise should have ended at 3. I hate it when characters leave. It’s like The Mummy, you know. The third one was awfully lame without Rachel Weisz as Evelyn. And that’s just an example. Everytime actors decide to leave a show or a movie franchise, it breaks my heart because it will never be the same again and I know that the movie/show can’t be as good as before. That said, the actors are allowed to try making it bigger in HW. I just don’t like it personally.

  • velcrodots

    Crikey, I wish my doctor looked like that! I’d still pay the $35 to get a check-up, even if he is a nutcase XD

    Oh and to carry on the conversation, I think a 4th pirates is overkill, so in a way I’m glad he’s not in it. I reckon the other three only worked so well because Jack and Will were opposites, which you needed to fully appreciate Jack’s weirdness.

  • sally

    Keira has been in a lot of very good films since POTC3.
    Atonement, Pride and Prejudice, the Duchess and she has
    a new film with the hot Sam Worthington coming out soon.

  • reeven

    i like him but say no to pirates…STUPID!

  • Kate


  • Jayne

    It will not be the same i when 2 c the films because of orlando and now hes out its not 4 ME ANY MORE. I SAY GOOD LUCK 2 HIM AND ORLANDO SAID HE WAS NOT GOING 2 DO ANY MORE IN 2007.

  • Olivia

    I think that it was not possible for him to come back for the next film(according to the facts of the movie).So, they didn’t ask for him to participate to the project.
    I think they asked Keira but she said no because she likes to do other kind of film now. More serious and roles oscar worthing. As much much as I would like to see her again in a movie like that I don’t think she is to accept.She wants to take another nominee and win the Oscar so badly(can you blame her? every actor/actress wants that!).

  • ?

    Give me a break, what’s this talk that they couldn’t make him come back for the next because it was not possible? We’re talking about a franchise in which several characters died and came back from the dead.
    Orlando said he didn’t want to do another one even before they considered doing another one. If they could have him back, they would hire him again as even if most fans want to see Depp he had his own share of audience.

  • Honey

    Disney asked him again and again, Orlando made his decision not come back to POTC 4. you can go to the writers ( Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio ) web-site to ask about this.

    to @ flower, Don’t be stupid, like an old man try to rape a young girl.

  • hmmm

    Just heard that Makenzie Crook (sp?) just pulled out too.
    He was one half of the Pintel/Rigetti comedy duo.
    The script must be really bad.
