A ‘Pirates’ life: Orlando Bloom finds gem of a role in ‘Dead Man’s Chest’

What makes Orlando Bloom happy about reprising the role of Will Turner in “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”?

    “Don’t you think he’s a bit more pirate and a bit less of a stick in the mud?” the actor wondered rhetorically.

    “I hope you do, because that was kind of the intention. There is a dark side to Will that I think sort of evolves a little bit because he starts to assume this pirate thing. It’s like, ‘Who is this pirate?’ ”

    And this time, he added, the footwear is much better.

    “I get a pair of boots instead of those little shoes and stockings - which weren’t cool at all.”

    For Bloom, a return to a hit franchise is familiar. His career was launched as Legolas, the archer in the Oscar-winning “Lord of the Rings” trilogy. But “Pirates,” he pointed out, was never intended as a trilogy; the original movie had lowly origins, inspired not by a Tolkien classic but by the Disneyland amusement-park ride.

    “It was like, ‘OK, “Pirates of the Caribbean” - done.’ But with the success of it, they were like, ‘Let’s do some more!’ ”

    Bloom credits director Gore Verbinski for creating “a story that could evolve - and it did. The characters really developed, and it felt like they went on a journey. It didn’t feel forced. Will develops as a character, and I feel like they all do.”

    In “DMC” (opening Friday), Bloom’s Will discovers his crustacean-crusted father, Bootstrap Bill (Stellan Skarsgard), who lives beneath the sea, imprisoned by Davy Jones in his locker. Will’s marriage to Keira Knightley’s Elizabeth is also troubled with the realization that either or both may be hung before the wedding day.

    If the plot’s not enough, “they top it, too,” Bloom said. “How do you top that first movie? How do you top pirates turning skeletal in the moonlight? How do you top an entrance like Johnny (Depp) has in the first movie when he steps onto the deck? Well, here he comes out (floating in the sea, imprisoned in a coffin) and blows a bird off the top of a coffin and then paddles into the sunset, moonlight or whatever.”

    It all seems rosy, with “DMC” poised to be a summer smash. But Bloom recalled how it wasn’t that easy to say yes initially.

    “I was shooting a film with Geoffrey Rush and Heath Ledger called ‘Ned Kelly,’ and it was a real gritty, Australian, down-and-dirty genre. Then when I got a phone call saying that there was a pirate movie based on a Disney ride called ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ I was like, ‘No, thanks.’ ”

    It was Rush, who quickly signed on, who explained it to Bloom.

    “It wasn’t like I was easily persuaded, but then Johnny signed up, and it sort of came together and I got it. It was like, ‘This is a great opportunity. Let’s do it.’ ”

    Along with Depp, Knightley and Rush, Bloom will be doing it one more time for the final installment due next summer.
