Unless, of course, Bloom gets a one million payday for it. Say what? First Showing reports:
The stars of the prequels , Martin Freeman, Robert Kazinsky and Aidan Turner, will take home a combined pay-check that is less than Bloom’s cameo money.Given the two Hobbit films are estimated together to be around the other 499 million, it’s a drop in the bucket. I’m NOT exactly sure why Bloom’s paycheck is up for contreversy. His “two minutes” could be anywhere from a day’s filming to two days filming. There could be different takes, different scenes. There could be issues of availability. In addition, they agreed to pay him the salary. It’s a done deal. If you ask me, he's just going to sing "They're Taking The Hobbits To Isengard" for two minutes.
