British actor Orlando Bloom raised a few laughs last night (04MAY05), when he arrived on David Letterman's chat show dressed up as a police officer.

The Lord Of The Rings heart-throb made the gesture, after learning that Letterman was amused by the actor's penchant for appearing in movies which require him to dress up in unusual costumes.

Bloom explained, "I thought since you like to see me in costumes I didn't wanna let you down."

He jokingly added, "This is actually my real gig. The acting's a part-time thing."
