English actor Orlando Bloom enjoyed the rare achievement of starring in not one, but two hugely successful film franchises. A virtual unknown, Bloom first broke out as the dashing elf warrior Legolas in Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" (2001). By the time "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" (2002) and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003) had dominated the box-office, Bloom was one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood. From one blockbuster franchise to another, he jumped ship to star with Johnny Depp and Keira Knightley in "Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl" (2003), further capturing the hearts of young moviegoers everywhere. Bloom had less luck away from these two properties, however, with efforts like the historical epic "Kingdom of Heaven" (2005) and the derided dramedy "Elizabethtown" (2005) doing little to increase his marquee stature. The ever dependable Disney franchise continued with "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" (2006) and "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" (2007), but an appearance in "The Three Musketeers" (2011) met with little enthusiasm. And while he was seen in a much reduced capacity, the actor's return to Middle-earth in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (2012) at least placed him in front of a large, welcoming audience once more. Still early in his career, Bloom continued to seek out challenging new roles even as he returned to proven fan favorites.
