I was itching to play bad guy role: Musketeer Orlando Bloom

London: Actor Orlando Bloom says he signed up for "The Three Musketeers" because he wanted to play a bad guy.

The British actor plays the Duke of Buckingham in the swashbuckling adventure and says it was "liberating" playing such a different character to those he is usually offered.

"I know I`m usually the good guy and that`s why this was the direction I had been itching to go in. That`s why I did the movie actually. I`m not sure I would have wanted to play D`Artagnan. I wanted to do something like play the bad guy," contactmuisc.com quoted him as saying.

"The bad guys have more fun -- so much more fun -- and it is totally liberating," he added.

The movie directed by Paul W.S. Anderson was shot in 3D.
