Peter Jackson just confirmed via his facebook page that British actor Orlando Bloom is set to return as "Legolas" in his upcoming The Hobbit [movies]. The director stated: "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." Pretty slick move.
