Cool Videos: Orlando Bloom celebrates his final day filming The Hobbit by mocking himself
Seven years ago, THE LORD OF THE RINGS was the subject of countless memes, one of which was a remix of the Legolas quote "They're taking the hobbits to Isengard" as spoken by Orlando Bloom. The video has amassed over 12 million views on YouTube.
So, as THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN concludes filming for actors, each is commemorating in their own way. Last week we saw Peter Jackson post a Facebook photo of Ian McKellen after filming his final scene as Gandalf and now we have Orlando Bloom concluding filming as Legolas.
Instead of a simple photo, Bloom decided to mark the end of his Middle-Earth run by re-enacting the Isengard meme. This is both hilarious and fitting to the character and shows that all of those involved with bringing the Tolkien books to life truly enjoyed their part in the epic. It is great seeing actors there for more than just a paycheck and really having a connection with the films and what they mean for the millions of fans out there.
THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG opens December 13, 2013 and THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN opens on December 17, 2014.
