Orlando Bloom has two other claims to fame in my book. Here he is in a Gap commercial with Kate Beckingsale.

"Shakespeare's Romeo And Juliet" Broadway Opening Night - After Party

And, of course, he was married to Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr. Good news, ladies! They are no longer together.

Famous Literature Scenes in LEGO

by Rebecca Pahle (TheMarySue) at http://www.themarysue.com/lego-literature-scenes/#0

Literature plus LEGO!? What’s not to love? Waterstones is a bookstore I’ve had the pleasure of visiting in London.

“To coincide with the release of The Lego Movie, the UK bookstore recreated classic scenes from literature using LEGOs, then invited others to do the same and possibly win prizes. The Red Wedding loses some of its oomph when it’s made of little plastic blocks.”

Pride and Prejudice
By Waterstones. OK, OK, Darcy coming from the lake is a TV invention, not a book one. But can you blame them for including it?

The Red Wedding
“Game of Thrones” By Waterstones

Moby Dick
