Orlando Bloom Finishes Legolas Scenes for ‘Hobbit’

Thesp sings along with 'They're taking the Hobbits to Isengard' in video

Orlando Bloom has completed his work as Legolas on Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit” trilogy.

Jackson acknowledged the event on his Facebook  page by posting a minute-long video of a clearly amused Bloom singing along with Erwin Beekveld’s 2006 music video “They’re Taking the Hobbits to Isengard” — assembled from clips from “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy.

“A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting – part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie,” Jackson wrote. “When we finally got the day done, we said goodbye to Orlando, had a couple of beers … and couldn’t resist doing this!”
