Well, well, well. Look at who's got himself an elvish little sense of humor!
Orlando Bloom has now completed his work on "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" (for the uninitiated, it's also commonly* referred to as "The Hobbit 3: Shameless Cash Run"), so to celebrate him putting down that blonde wig and quiver set once and for all, Bloom and director Peter Jackson decided to pay a little homage to some on-point but long forgotten viral funnydom.

People are always complaining about how much Americans suck at doing accents, whether it's Kevin Costner as "Robin Hood" or Keanu Reeves seemingly coming off a heroin addiction in "Bram Stoker's Dracula." And we do suck sometimes, yes.
However, we want to at least even the playing field a little by pointing out some bafflingly bad American accents perpetrated by thesps from overseas. Europe and Australia may have the best acting academies and such, but not every graduate is as versatile as they should be, starting with a certain Gerard Butler from this past weekend's "Olympus Has Fallen."Get More »
You lucky Kiwis! Its cool enough that you actually live in Middle Earth itself, but now you get to venture down Peter Jackson's Hobbit hole (alright, that sounds dirty) two weeks bloody early.
The Hollywood Reporter has let it be known that native New Zealanders have first dibs on scoping out "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" when it's released there on November 28, well before it bows worldwide on December 12. Get More »
An apple a day keeps Orlando Bloom away? It might take a little more than that.
The "Lord of the Rings" star (aging nicely) seems right at home playing a psycho doc who abuses his powers as a healer (and his access to various drugs) in the creepy pursuit of a pretty patient (Riley Keough) in "The Good Doctor," a new kind of stalker thriller that asks a very frightening question: If you can't trust your own doctor, who can you trust?

Orlando Bloom is more than just a pretty face. Though yes, he's definitely that too. But this dark and dreamy thesp has just signed on for a meaty role alongside Djimon Hounsou in the crime drama "Zulu."
Helmed by Jerome Salle (the force behind "The Tourist"), the flick will be adapted from the novel by Caryl Ferey.
The story follows two Cape Town police officers (Bloom and Hounsou, of course) tasked with investigating the murder of an 18-year-old girl who happens to be the daughter of a member of the championship-winning Springboks rugby team. Soon, however, the investigation goes far beyond this single murder to reveal ties to the country's apartheid past.
Sounds like these two may have bitten off more than they could chew. Get More »
2011 was a big year for Amanda Seyfried's ex Dominic Cooper. The dark and handsome thesp starred in not one, but two roles in "The Devil's Double," as well as nailed the character of Howard Stark in the blockbuster "Captain America."
But it appears Cooper's just getting started — because word around Tinseltown is that he is set to replace Clive Owen in the international thriller "Cities." (Before you ask, Owen had to bow out due to scheduling issues.)
Helmed by "The Bank Job" director, Roger Donaldson, "Cities" is set just before the financial crash, with stories taking place all over the world that (presumably) are intertwined and (presumably) relate to finance. Get More »
Kirsten Dunst and Orlando Bloom are moving out of "Elizabethtown" and into different "Cities."
The starring duo of Cameron Crowe's 2005 romantic drama are joining Clive Owen for an international thriller covering a hot button topic: world finance, according to The Playlist.
"Cities" is a cautionary tale about greed and ambition that blends three interlinking storylines: in New York, a hedge fund manager (Owen) pursues money, sex and power; in London, a young couple struggles to buy a house; and in Mumbai, a cop investigates his corrupt colleagues who have ties to property speculators.
