I rarely watch TV, and when I do, it’s usually recorded so I skip through the commercials. Because of this, I’m not always up to date on new movies or their release dates. Imagine my surprise when, on Tuesday, I’m sitting in the orthodontist’s waiting room and a commercial comes on for the new Hobbit movie!
Honestly, I haven’t watched the first Hobbit movie yet (because it’s soooo long), and maybe if I had (or read the book) I would have expected what I saw on the screen, but alas, I didn’t.
There, on the huge plasma TV was my man, Legolas Greenleaf. Legolas (still played by Orlando Bloom) returns to the screen in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (December 13) and The Hobbit: There and Back Again (2014.)
I almost fell out of my chair! (I even looked around to see if the other parents noticed my enjoyment, but they were all engrossed in their magazines…phew!) After Lord of the Rings, I never thought I would see my Legolas again! (Yes, I said MY…Back off ladies! LOL!)
Suddenly, I have a very strong desire to watch The Hobbit—and it actually doesn’t have anything to do with a hobbit, or a ring, unless Legolas has something for me…! ;)
What about you? What movie or book hero makes you swoon?
