Hollywood actor Orlando Bloom was relieved to be cast in forthcoming movie Elizabethtown, because he's spent the last few years mainly starring in fantasy and historical epics.

Bloom has appeared in all three The Lord Of The Rings films, Troy, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN and Kingdom of Heaven and was desperate to star in a contemporary movie like director Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown.

He says, "First and foremost, it was great to do a film without a sword or a horse or suit armor. I wanted to do a contemporary film."
