  1. Thanks for posting all these photos and videos, Rene. I always find the UNICEF site a little confusing.

    Watching the videos brought tears to my eyes. Watching Orlando put on the flak jacket made me feel a little ill, but he is so loving and giving. And all those precious children and their teachers: I hope UNICEF can help them.

  2. Sarah Dunn has a photography website and one of her pages is The Hobbit Specials. All the photos are wonderful and there are two more of Orlando that I had not seen before. :Cloud9:

    The photos of Orlando were in the January 2014 issue of GQ magazine, Patty. You can find the scans here. :)

    I know I looked at those when you posted them, but I guess they looked so different in B&W, I did not recognize them... Thanks for the heads up!

  3. I was looking through a number of Hobbit trailers/previews/etc. and came across a big surprise, at least to me. I was watching the DoS EE extra that various folks have been referring to as a BoFA preview and there is a glimpse of him coaching his mother in her cameo! So cute. heart.gif

    At about the 2:19 mark. He is always so sweet with her.

    I can't tell which movie she might be in, but I bet she'll be at the premiere.

  4. From Ride Apart, a motorcycle interest site, an article about Orlando and yet another motorcycle. Lots more about the bike and the customization. I swear, he's like I am with kittens.. :lol:

    Orlando Blooms Stainless-Steel Triumph

    July 8, 2014

    By Jesse Kiser

    Money, fame, women and motorcycles these are the perks of a good-looking Hollywood actor. Orlando Bloom known for his roles in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and Will Turner in the Pirates of the Caribbean has been enjoying his Triumph around Los Angeles. What we believe started life as a 2013 Triumph Bonneville turned into this steam punk, futuristic bike in only 10 days!

    While catching up on work at the motorcycle-clothing-hipster-coffee-surfer-shop-store, Deus Ex Machina in Venice Beach, California, in walked Bloom with a friend. The friend and I started talking motorcycles as he was on a new BMW adventure bike. Bloom came over and his friend started bragging about Blooms new bike. The two had just returned from picking up the Triumph Bonneville from Chabott Engineering, in Los Angeles, CA. He was at Deus visiting Julian Heppekausen who helps runs the shop.

    Bloom made his Broadway premiere earlier this year as the star-crossed lover Romeo in The Richards Rodgers production of Romeo and Juliet. A modern twist of the classic play, Romeo rides in on a stainless-steel, firing-breathing Triumph. During the production Bloom fell in love with the bike. After the play was over he decided to keep it.



  5. I'm watching the rebroadcast now. Barbara, the announcers speak in English much of the time. When they talk to the fans, most of whom are German, they spoke German. All the cast interviews are in English and the introduction of the cast at the end is, as well. Here is who I believe was there:

    Ryan Gage
    Ken Stott
    Adam Brown
    Dean O'Gorman
    Aidan Turner
    Graham McTavish
    James Nesbitt
    Nesbitt girls, Mary & Peggy
    John Bain (I think)
    Mikael Persbrandt
    Sylvester McCoy
    Luke Evans
    Richard Armitage
    Benedict Cumberbatch
    Orlando Bloom
    Evangeline Lilly
    Martin Freeman
    Ed Sheeran
    Andy Serkis
    Philipa Boyens
    Peter Jackson

  6. It was a lot of fun to watch this. Orlando was gracious and looked great. All of the interviewees were so nice and answered numerous questions. One thing that I found so sweet was, just before the movie started, you could watch them getting ready for a group photo. Once it was taken, several folks made a point of giving Orlando a big hug. I especially noticed Benedict Cumberbatch - and then I realized why. Since Orlando has been on Broadway, he flew in just for tonight and most of them had not seen him until that point and were greeting him.

  7. Sheria Irving, who plays Juliet's servant, has done a photo tour of her day during a two-show day of Romeo and Juliet. It is quite interesting and, additionally, you will be pleased to see our Romeo in slide 67. It is included in this latest Playbill article:


    I have always heard that the two-show days are the real back-breakers, especially in a run of any length.

  8. Just in at The One Ring.net! :Cloud9:

    Orlando Bloom and Ian McKellen on TODAY show tomorrow, Tuesday

    September 30, 2013 at 6:59 pm by greendragon -

    The excitement just keeps coming! Sir Ian McKellen just tweeted as follows:

    Time to set those DVRs, and catch Gandalf and Legolas on tv before you watch the latest trailer!

    Orlando Bloom and I on NBC’s Today show to premiere the trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug tomorrow Tuesday 8am EDT

  9. There are so many things I love about this trailer. Radagast and the hedgehogs .. and the hares; Thorin in the treetops; Fili and Kili at the door; Everything I have seen of Balin; Elrond. :iheart:

    If you had trouble viewing the Alternate endings trailers, try this video at BuzzFeed. They put together just the endings in one minute and a half video.


  10. One thing I admire about Orlando and how he uses his fame is his constant support and encouragement of all things having to do with theater. It was such a life-saver for him personally and he always makes a point to visit and support theater groups where ever he goes. The fact that his stepfather, Harry Bloom, was such an important figure in 20th century South African history may have influenced his decision to take the role, but the novel Zulu (by Caryl Férey) that the movie is based on sounds like a very dark police procedural. Apparently, a new thing he'll get to try out is an Afrikaans accent.

  11. Here's Orlando about town/doing research for his role!

    Orlando Bloom says Biko's Quest is 'amazing'

    Hollywood star Orlando Bloom, who is in Cape Town filming the movie Zulu, came to watch Biko’s Quest at Artscape Theatre last night.

    He described the production, which celebrates the life of Steve Biko and is produced by the Steve Biko Centre and Jazzart Dance Theatre, as ‘amazing’.

    “Chatting to him afterwards, he said he was impressed with South African talent and the emotion displayed by the performers in Biko’s Quest,” says Jacqueline Manyaapelo, Artistic Director of Jazzart Dance Theatre, and one of the choreographers of the show. “He also asked about Jazzart’s work and our training programmes.”

    Bloom was joined by director Jérôme Salle and the pair took time to answer questions and have their photos taken with Jazzart company members. “We were delighted that both of them could come and see the performance and spend time with us afterwards,” says Manyaapelo.
