Peter Jackson confirmed on his facebook page that Orlando Bloom will comeback as Legolas for The Hobbit:

“Ten years ago, Orlando Bloom created an iconic character with his portrayal of Legolas. I’m excited to announce today that we’ll be revisiting Middle Earth with him once more. I’m thrilled to be working with Orlando again. Funny thing is, I look older—and he doesn’t! I guess that’s why he makes such a wonderful elf.”

Bloom will renunite with his old mates,  Ian McKellen (Gandalf ), Hugo Weaving (Elrond), Andy Serkis (Gollum),  Cate Blanchett (Galadriel), Ian Holm (old Bilbo), and Elijah Wood (Frodo).

Seriously today Triple M is on fire, posting the best rock news ever.

Again TripleM hit us with great rock news!, because Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave) is mean to announce a solo Australian tour.

Music reporter Nui Te Koha told Triple M’s Hot Breakfast this morning: “Chris Cornell is coming to play some acoustic gigs. Soundgarden tracks are in the set. Expect an announcement this week or next.”

Cornell will follow the path of Eddie Vedder who toured Australia few months ago, with sold out shows around the country and we were there in Canberra and Sydney covering on the spot both of his shows.

For sure Cornell will have a show as good as Vedder’s…this will be a must go show!…can you imagine if he sings Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike”?

The synopsis of the film:
Oranges & Sunshine tells the story of Margaret Humphreys, a social worker from Nottingham, who uncovered one of the most significant social scandals in recent times: the organised deportation of children in care from the United Kingdom to Australia.

Almost single-handedly, against overwhelming odds and with little regard for her own well-being, Margaret reunited thousands of families, brought authorities to account and worldwide attention to an extraordinary miscarriage of justice.
