    Orlando did a good job in FotR. His real challenge will come in TT because it is in this movie that more of his acting skills will be put to use. I was not impressed with several interviews where he stated that he thought of Legolas as kind of an Elf Ninja. Elf Ninja just doesn't quite fit my idea of Legolas.

    he did great! here is an interesting fact: when he autitioned for the part he wasn't even out of drama school! just thought that was interesting. Orlando Bloom did a great job (and he is cute in real life and as Legolas:D )!

    Orlando Bloom played the part quite well. He has an elvish look to him.

    I believe the films have been, with a few exeptions, casted well.

    I have come to terms with Mr. Weaving as Elrond.

    I didn't picture Elrond quite that way, but he works for me.

    I really enjoyed the humor and sincerity that OB brought to the character of Legolas. He and John Rhys-Davis did a great job as bringing the akward friendship of a drwarf and an Elf to reality

    I'm getting there, but I still keep hearing "welcome to Rivendell, Mr. Anderson".

    It's really not the actors fault, because he did a fine job of playing the role. It's just that he had such an impactful role in the Matrix that I still have difficulty seeing and especially hearing him as other than Agent Smith.

    He did great! Did you know that when he tried out for the movie he wanted to play as Faramir?:confused:

    33Peregrin hmmm

    Yeah! That's what I heard too. I'm just glad casting saw past his dark hair and saw a long blonde elf. I think he's a great Legolas.

    I really liked OB's preformance[sp] in LoTR. His face was what really brought the character to life. All of his expressions were really in mood with everything else that was going on in the movie.

    Orlando did a teriffic job of portraying Legolas, and another interesting fact, just before he went into acting school, he was in a bad auto accident, and the doctors said that he would never walk again. 13 days later he WALKED out of the hospital. Isn't that cool? He's survived the battle of Helm';s Deep, AND an auto accident. :eek: He's so dead set on surviving,it's almost scary.

    I think he is probally the only person that could play him. He also broke every bone in his body! Ouch!
