Pirates Director Lets Orlando Bloom

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN filmmaker GORE VERBINSKI was reluctant to cast British star ORLANDO BLOOM in his pirate movie because of his 'pop star appeal'.

Verbinski, who teamed Bloom with Hollywood hunk JOHNNY DEPP for the water adventure, is glad he took a risk on the LORD OF THE RINGS star.

He says "I think Orlando is very much taking on the ERROL FLYNN role. I was a little nervous because of the kind of pop star quality of Orlando. But he has 'it', that thing that on screen is such a wonderful presence."
