Sticking strange pointy ears on him didnt fool us for a minute - Orlando Bloom is one gorgeous elf. Cast as valiant warrior and Elf Legolas Greenleaf in the phenomenal LOTR trilogy, the British newcomer is creating a buzz as far-reaching as the fantasy film's hold on the box-office. As lucky as he is dashing, this 24-year-old actor won the role of Legolas two days before he graduated from drama school. New Zealand was the next stop for the 18-month shoot to complete the fantasy trilogy, which will be released at one -year intervals. Those who can't bear the arduous wait can get their fill of Orlando in the current war drama Black Hawk Down, where the Brit swaps his canterbury-bred accent for an American drawl to play a US army ranger (fellow rangers include Ewan Mcgregor and Josh Hartnett). Equally arresting as a 2,931-year-old elf or greased-up army boy, Orlando has Next Big Thing tattooed all over his beautiful forehead- and an acting career filled with more exciting surprises than Middle Earth.
