  Orlando lands another top film role
Updated 15 May 2003, 21.11
Orlando Bloom
Lord Of The Rings star Orlando Bloom has landed another top film role.

The 26-year-old, who played Legolas in the Rings films, has been cast in a comedy sending up some of Britain's most respected actors.

The film is called Remains Of The Piano, which is a jokey reference to a 1993 film called Remains Of The Day.

Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson in Remains Of The Day

Remains Of The Day is one of many movies made by producer Ismail Merchant and director James Ivory.

Their films, which often have historical settings, have starred top actors like Dame Judi Dench and Sir Anthony Hopkins.

Orli's new film is a spoof of the Merchant Ivory films.

He will play actor Daniel Day-Lewis, who appeared in 1986 Merchant Ivory film Room With A View.

Patrick Stewart will co-star with Orli

Star Trek actor Patrick Stewart, Scream actress Neve Campbell and comedian Billy Connolly will be among Orli's co-stars.

The plot centres on a toff who returns to Britain from India, gets caught up in a murder and is forced to take a job as a butler.

Orli's career has rocketed since he appeared in the Rings films.

His fans will also be able to catch him in other upcoming movies The Calcium Kid and Troy.
