Orlando Bloom Absolutely Hated A Huge Role

So who did Orlando Bloom play in “Troy?” Fresh off huge projects like Peter Jackson’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy and the unexpected Disney smash hit “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” Bloom played Paris in Wolfgang Petersen’s retelling of the Trojan War. For those who might not be super familiar with Greek history, Parias the Prince of Troy and younger brother to Eric Bana’s crown prince Hector, the leader of the massive Trojan army.

Bloom, to be fair, did say he loved working with huge actors on the film, but that his role just felt completely silly to him. “The movie was great,” Bloom said. “It was Brad [Pitt]. It was Eric [Bana] and Peter O’Toole. But how am I going to play this character? It was completely against everything I felt in my being.” 

From there, Bloom addressed one moment in Troy” that he says was particularly ridiculous: “At one point it says Paris crawls along the floor having been beaten by somebody and holds his brother’s leg. I was like, ‘I’m not going to be able to do this.’ One of my agents at the time said, ‘But that’s the moment that will make it!’ And I completely fell for that line of a agent. I think that’s why I blanked that from my mind.”
