Bloom. Orlando Bloom.


Lord of the Rings heart-throb Orlando Bloom is set to be the next James Bond - after Irish actor Pierce Brosnan retires as 007.

The British actor, who played elf Legolas in the JRR Tolkien film trilogy, is in meetings with Bond producers, who are desperate for Bloom to play the ladykilling spy, according to British tabloid, the Daily Star.

A Bond source says, "They are pulling out all the stops to get him.

"Orlando would be perfect for the part as he's got the looks, the charm, the accent and the high profile that would make Bond even more popular.

"They want to move away from the traditional image of James Bond - the older, suave gentleman - and believe a younger, trendier actor will attract friends."

The actor's spokesman said, "No decision had been made about him taking the role."
