Earrings and an Adam Lambert quiff: Meet Orlando Bloom as the rockstar Duke of Buckingham in The Three Musketeers


He's got the look: Orlando Bloom sports a quiff and a moustache for his role as the Duke of Buckingham in his upcoming film, The Three Musketeers, in these newly released international posters

He's played everything from an elf, to a pirate, to a pilot, and now Orlando Bloom is about to play a duke.

The international posters for the British actor's upcoming film, The Three Musketeers, were released today and show the actor as you've never seen him before.

Sporting a thick moustache and an Adam Lambert-like quiff, the 34-year-old actor looks more rockstar than gentleman.

In the newest reincarnation of Alexander Dumas' famous novel, the Pirates of the Caribbean star plays the Duke of Buckingham.

In the book, his character has an affair with the queen of France and is plotted against by Cardinal Richelieu (Christoph Waltz), who hopes to expose the affair to the king.

The thriller, which is set in the 17th century, focuses on young D'Artagnan (Logan Lerman) and his fellow Musketeers, who must defeat a beautiful double agent and her evil employer from seizing the French throne.

It is directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, the director behind the Resident Evil and Death Race franchises.

He has cast his real life wife, model and musician Milla Jovovich, as Milady de Winter, a spy, messenger and assassin for the Cardinal Richelieu.

Bloom was working on the film when his own model wife, Miranda Kerr, announced that she was pregnant with the couple's first child.

The Victoria's Secret stunner gave birth to baby boy Flynn Blanchard Copeland Bloom on 11 January 2011.

Flynn, now six months, is the spitting image of his famous father: they have the very same beautiful brown eyes.

Said Kerr of her son: 'They say the first three years are the most important, so I want to make sure that he gets the attention and the nurturing and love that he really needs, so we'll see what happens.'

The Three Musketeers is due in theatres on 12 October, 2011 in the U.S. and 21 October in the U.K.
