He’s wearing more clothes than that time he went paddle boarding anyway.

The Pirates of the Caribbean actor switched his Instagram account from private to public in the last few days, with the latest posts he’s sharing indicating that he’s prepping for a new movie role.

Over the weekend, Orlando shared a picture of him on a motorcycle donning platinum blonde hair. He captioned the post ‘back to blond’, referring to the hair colour he donned as Legolas for the LOTR and The Hobbit movies, and ‘rolling to set’, indicating that it’s for a new movie role.

In all likelihood, the prep is for Smart Chase: Fire & Earth, which the actor joined the cast of last June. The flick is a Shanghai-set action-packed thriller which Orlando is also co-producing.

Yesterday Bloom shared a video on Instagram of him practicing some kung fu fighting choreography with a 'Shaolin master' inside a Shanghai gym.

We think he’s Blooming (sorry…) into the role rather nicely.
