6 Movie Roles Orlando Bloom Almost Landed, But Didn’t in the End

If you didn’t already love Orlando Bloom already, get this! The guy holds a record for being in a whopping six films that made more than $300 million, which he has the Pirates of the Caribbean and Lord of the Rings franchises to thank. But other than his return in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and a few TV appearances, the 40-year-old actor has been mostly M.I.A. the last few years.

Luckily, he’s got something big in the works for 2019 — producing and acting in an original fantasy series on Amazon called Carnival Row with Cara Delevingne. But while we’re so on board with that, we just wish we’d gotten to see Orly’s face in more movies than the ones listed on his IMBD page. He is one of our faves, after all!

Let’s be clear, it’s not like he didn’t have the chance to star in more. With one look at this list, you’ll see that the actor had plenty of other potential roles that he either didn’t land or turned down himself. But you’ll never guess which ones!
