Me too! I'm going to be totally hot for Legolas now! I mean, I'm excited as fan of the book to see it come to life by PJ but now I'll get in on all the fuss about The Elf

another interview from moviesblog.mtv.com:
Quote:
Orlando Bloom's 'Hobbit' Return: Middle-Earth Is 'Unchanged'

One of the more surprising—but welcome—early announcements about the new "Hobbit" films was that Orlando Bloom would reprise his role as everyone's favorite blond-haired elfish archer, Legolas. Though the character does not appear in the book, director Peter Jackson wrote a part for a younger Legolas to make his return to Middle Earth.

"I was very honored that Pete wrote me back into it because it's perfectly feasible that I could be there," Bloom says. "That they thought to have me there was a real compliment."

Read more about Bloom returning as Legolas after the jump!

With the part being written specifically for the films, it's impossible to say what Legolas may be up to in the "Lord of the Rings" prequel. MTV News spoke with Bloom while he was promoting "The Three Musketeers" in London, and he says that Legolas will be up to his old tricks. Bloom hints that his role in "The Hobbit" will have "all the Leg-y magic moments," which we'll take as, "awesome bow and arrow stuff with flips."

Bloom says that returning to the set and Middle Earth has been like hanging out with the family again. "To me, it's like stepping back into a family affair. It's just amazing. It's unchanged," Bloom says.

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" starts the two-part quest December 2013 with a 3D release, and the following Decemeber, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" brings the journey to a close.

^ You know, it wouldn't be the first time we heard that a movie was postponed... But I'm relieved they just typed the wrong year.

Great interview with Orlando about Legolas *__*

Quote:
Orlando Bloom on Returning to Play a Younger Legolas in 'The Hobbit' (Exclusive)

Orlando Bloom, costar of The Three Musketeers, told Movies.com that he is looking forward to revisiting Legolas for The Hobbit, even though he’ll be playing the character at a younger age, some ten years after he first inhabited the role. “We’re talking about an elf here, man, so what we’re saying is a few hundred years, give or take,” Bloom said in a recent interview. “It’s a pretty ageless kind of thing. I am really excited about it.”

Playing the beautiful, ageless elf who was part of the Fellowship of the Ring, Bloom was an early breakout among the series’ ensemble cast members, and he subsequently became a star on the merits of his contributions to that franchise as well as the Pirates of the Caribbean films. He said that he expects that returning to the role will be fairly easy, even though a big part of his connection to Legolas was related to his then-inexperience as an actor, much less in a film series with as much infrastructure as Peter Jackson’s trilogy.

“I think that character is in my veins,” he explained. “In preparation I go back into the way I prepared for the character ten years ago.” At the same time, Bloom admitted that he has changed since then, but indicated that returning to the world of Middle Earth will help him reconnect with a part of him that he and the character originally shared. “Obviously it’s a lot more informed today with the experiences I’ve had. But the innocence and the vulnerability and naivety in some ways of Legolas was part of who I was at the time as an actor, but it will be something that I’ve kind of maintained in a way.”

“It played because elves are immortal, and there’s an innocence to them, which is something that is the thing that I will be conscious of.”

Bloom also said that he’ll be bringing some new elements to Legolas, including a slightly more unpolished sensibility, since he’ll be several years younger than he was in Lord of the Rings. “The other way that I’ve thought about it is that in a way, because it’s a prequel, he was probably a bit of a younger gun,” he observed. “So he was a bit more loose; this is like a precursor to Lord of the Rings, it’s like a warm-up to Lord of the Rings for him, in a way, so that’s interesting.”

Thanks shenanyginz! I'm really glad Howard Shore is doing the scores for these too, it would seem weird to have some other composer.

citygirl, PJ knows we are all frothing at the mouth, desperate to see the latest pics. of Legolas. I'm betting we will be lucky to catch even a glimpse of him until just before the film is released. What a great way to keep interest at fever pitch? I mean, who else is in the film? A bunch of dwarves doesn't float my boat, so to speak, even if they are the main characters in 'The Hobbit".

Here´s the YouTube link:
