From latimes.com: “I was thrilled,” Bloom said when asked how he felt when he got the call to return to Middle Earth. “Peter’s an amazing filmmaker, and these films are his babies, and to be a part of these again was just wonderful, you know.”
And since “The Hobbit” is a prequel to “The Lord of the Rings,” Bloom, 36, credits digital “magic” with getting his ageless elf to look even younger.
“Well, I work out, I drink juices. No, I’m joking! That’s a joke!” he said. “I think that’s the magic of digital photography, right? I was very happy that the wig still fit and that I got a chance to be in these movies. It’s a great character.”
