Archer? Clean-cut Babyface? Pirate?

The Return of the King has just come out, and I have noticed the upswing in blogs about the subject. Legolas is one of my favorite characters, but I must say that Orlando Bloom as Will Turner in The Pirates of the Caribbean (long brown hair and goatee) is my favorite look for the young actor.

Please vote on YOUR favorite Bloom...he is a pretty one all-around though.

As much as I love Lord of the Rings and how Orlando Bloom played Legolas, I agree with you...Orlando Bloom looks much better with brown hair. I can't wait to see how he looks in Troy!


OH! My vote goes to the third poster.

In my humble opinion, if looks is what we're going for, he is a terrible blonde. My favorite would be his look in Pirates.

My favorite flower...brown with long petals. Sorry, I was going a little bit too far with that metaphor.

You are so fun Amanda! All of those pictures rock, but the best one is the one on the right, the third poster, the "pirate" look.
Question, is Legolas one of your favorite characters because he is an awesome character from the depths of Tolkien's imagination, or because Orlando Bloom is simply smashing in the role?

Hey Amanda, great post! I'd have to say my fave Orlie look is as Legolas. I don't generally go for blondes, but I think he can carries it off well.

And as far as POTC goes, it's all about Johnny Depp! You can't beat smudgey eyeliner and a Keith Richards swagger.

Err, sorry for the typo!

Diana, I would have to say that I like Legolas because of his skill at archery and his quiet nature (though I do not look for either exclusively in men).

And Kate, I am with you in the weird allure of Depp and his tricky hand at stealing coins and applying eyeliner--he is an excellent pirate. My favorite line of his--when he is trying to steal a craft at Port Royal: "It's such a pretty boat."

I nearly laughed my ever-growing butt off.

Thats the best reason to love him!

Soo... Amanda, you like the one on the right? I agree completely! He kind of has that "bad boy" thing going on and as your OTHER cousin says, "You've gotta be a little bit bad to be good!" :)

Skill at archery and quiet nature?? Come on, there has to be more to it than that. ;)

See you later...

Yeah, there might be a little more to it than that :-)
