It's Official... Orlando Bloom to Return in The Hobbit

Orlando Bloom as LegolasOrlando Bloom as LegolasPeter Jackson has just announced that Orlando Bloom will indeed be returning in The Hobbit!  Here's what he posted to his facebook page:

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.

That makes for quite a few LOTR alumni in The Hobbit!    Ian McKellen, Ian Holm, Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, and Orlando Bloom.  Of course, Hugo Weaving as Elrond, and Ian McKellen as Gandalf make perfect sense in The Hobbit, but the others... well, I hope their roles don't feel tacked on and out of place...
