And I think we covered it with "Lord of the Rings."

<strong>MTV </strong>- So that's it for Legolas?

<strong>Orlando Bloom </strong>- Yeah. And besides, Legolas isn't really in "The Hobbit."

<strong>MTV </strong>- Well, he's not mentioned in "The Hobbit," but Tolkien's later writings said that he and his father, Thranduil, were indeed there.</p><p><strong>Orlando Bloom </strong>- Oh really? Yeah, maybe they'll create a subplot for Legolas. [Laughs...] But who's directing it? Peter Jackson? </p></blockquote><p>As most <em>Lord of the Rings</em> fans know, Thranduil is Legolas father who lives in Mirkwood, and is met by Bilbo and the dwarves travelling through that great forest...  Legolas could <em>easily</em> have a cameo in the film.</p><p>It's inevitable the film will be made... only time will tell if Peter Jackson has the opportunity to bring parts of the original cast back together.
