Orlando Bloom is Prince of Persia?
Get your blue sachet of salt at the ready, as unconfirmed and uncredited sources are saying that Orlando Bloom has signed for the lead role in Disney's coming Prince of Persia trilogy, the first film being Prince of Persia: Sands of Time.
The article doesn't give a source or even mention where the rumour came from, but they are stating that he has beaten the competition and has the role.
If the rumour is true, coming from WENN through 13WHAM, then it could be good casting. He's proven he has the swashbuckling and physicality required for the role from the Pirates of the Caribbean series, and with make-up and some voice coaching he can look and sound Persian for the role.
What do you think though, is Persia: Sands of Time too close to the Pirates role? Or is he just not right for a Persian Prince?
