Off-Topic: Orlando Bloom’s Legolas YouTube Spoof

Legolas Orlando Bloom

More than 10 years ago, young actor Orlando Bloom first appeared on the big screen in his (now) iconic role of Legolas, the most famous elf of all. The role made Orlando rich, famous and the butt of quite a few parodies, spoofs and internet-goofs.

For the new Hobbit trilogy, Orlando was allowed to don the pointy ears and blonde wig for a final time. After the last day of shooting, Peter Jackson posted a YouTube video with Orlando giving an interpretation of a famous Legolas spoof-video: Taking the Hobbits to Isengard.

Love it.

I’ll be missing him, even if the new Hobbit movies ain’t as epic as the original trilogy was!
