Here is the This Geeks World Orlando Bloom Top 5

#5 Troy – Bloom plays Paris in this telling of Homer’s epic tale. This is a wide, sweeping, epic of a movie with great casting truly wonderful action. While bloom is certainly not the lead in this he brings his ‘a’ game and shines through in every scene.

#4 Elizabethtown – A little dark. A lot quirky. Bloom is home to say goodbye to his father who has passed away. In the midst, he meets and falls for Kirsten Dunst a stewardess who has ended up in the same place. This is a very solid darker rom-com with a great script and a lot of heart. it is high on the list of my all-time, romantic comedies.

#3 Lord of the Rings Trilogy – The relationship between Gimili and Legolas are the buddy cops of the LotR trilogy. Their humor and passion and bravery put a little more glow on the series and help to lighten some very grim scenes and dire circumstances.

#1 & #2 Pirates of the Caribbean Series – I know, I am cheating, but I am counting the first three PotC movies as one and two. While Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow is the heart of the movies, they might not have been as good without Orlando Bloom as the straight guy to Depp’s deranged pirate.

Happy Birthday, Orlando Bloom!
