Orlando Bloom thinks his son will love his films

Orlando Bloom has admitted he can't wait to show his son his movies when he is old enough.

The British actor, who is father to two-year-old son Flynn with model wife Miranda Kerr, has starred in adventure movies including The Lord Of The Rings, Pirates Of The Caribbean, The Hobbit and The Three Musketeers.

Orlando is now appearing opposite Smash star Condola Rashad in a Broadway production of Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet, and has said he feels he belongs on the stage.

"I feel like this is what I was supposed to be doing or at least part of what I was supposed to be doing. I found myself doing movies - which were wonderful and amazing and I love - I've got a collection of movies at home that my son is going to absolutely drool over when he's the right age," he said.

"But for Orlando and for the actor in me, this process is so rewarding and I just feel like I'm going to be a different actor after this. I already feel like a different actor."

And he admitted the classic role is a huge challenge.

"It's a monster of a play," he said. "I tend to do this. I tend to set myself some pretty high bars to reach. It's crazy exciting, daunting and all the rest. What is there to lose?"

Meanwhile, Condola is delighted to be working with Orlando.

"I'm a huge Lord Of The Rings fan," she confessed. "There were actually times in rehearsal when I was like, 'OK, not to geek out really quick, but I need to know: What is the difference between an Uruk-hai and an Orc?' I had to know."
