Nerdy girls everywhere felt a slight tremble in the force today as Peter Jackson updated his Facebook page letting the world know that Orlando Bloom is officially on board to reprise his role as Legolas in The Hobbit. Everyone expected him to come back, but now everyone can breath a sigh of relief with the confirmation. Jackson had this to say,
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.
