Orlando Bloom: Legolas in 'The Hobbit'!

It’s official: Orlando Bloom is reprising the role of Legolas for the upcoming film, The Hobbit!

“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,” director-producer Peter Jackson wrote on his Facebook page.

“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,” he added.

Peter is reportedly shooting the two-part prequel to the Lord of the Rings trilogy in New Zealand.

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Orlando Bloom back as Legolas?
