Warning: they're not exactly loving the movie
The best review is at Variety
The bits of this review that deal with Orlando are below:
UUnfortunately, Dean runs afoul of both incredibly arrogant lead singer The Stain (Orlando Bloom, definitely not as you've seen him before) and high-powered manager Nina (Laura Linney), who's trying to get them signed
On the plus side, Bloom clearly enjoys playing Ultimate Rock Star Arsehole, while a somewhat miscast Linney nonetheless also relishes her music-biz insider's extreme, comical ruthlessness.
Another good review is at nj.com
That Juliette Lewis, the hardest-working supporting actress in show business, turns in another good performance as a drug-addled bassist is no surprise. It is a pleasant one, though, to see the usually wispy Orlando Bloom as a foul-mouthed punk rocker (who backs D on the tour that manager Laura Linney dubs “Healapalooza”).
The many notable, familiar faces in this film from the likes of Orlando Bloom, Laura Linney, to Juliette Lewis and even others whom you may recognize from TV gigs, are more or less the amusing points in SYMPATHY FOR DELICIOUS. Each of them holds their ground quite well, obviously they understand that this is not their movie, this is Thornton’s movie, so none of them mind that their characters are not so 3 dimensional.
Bloom as a rock star is definitely a must see, his bad boy, living dangerously, charm is off the charts.

Info about Orlando's role in the Beastie Boys' “Fight for Your Right Revisited”
"Revisited" attempts to take the viewer back to 1987, when their raucous and silly "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)" music video was released. The trio, in the clip, manage to make their exit from the party, and "Revisited" picks back up where they left off.
And by "left off," I mean Elijah Wood, Danny McBride and Seth Rogen pick up their game and run with it as trouble-causing Beasties themselves. Cue about two dozen cameos from famous friends, from Susan Sarandon (mother coming home to a wrecked apartment) to Orlando Bloom (car window washer), Steve Buscemi (bartender), Rainn Wilson (unfortunate passerby) and Will Arnett (unfortunate passerby, C'MON).
Orlando's character is called Johnny Ryall
From party anthems to politically charged songs, the group’s sense of musical adventure is still alive after all these years. Though not as good as I hoped it would be, Fight for Your Right Revisited it’s still an above par musical effort in the end. The short is so playful and vibrant that even when it stumbles, as it does fairly frequently, it’s still an enjoyable spectacle for any fans of the Brooklyn act
The films cluttered with a who’s who of celebrity cameos: Susan Sarandon, Stanley Tucci, Kirsten Dunst, Jason Schwartzman, Steve Buscemi, Ted Danson, Rainn Wilson, Will Arnett, Rashida Jones, Martin Starr, David Cross, and Jody Hill. Chloe Sevigny and Maya Rudolph appear as drugged out “Metal chicks” taking whippets and dropping liquid acid. Clint Caloury shows up playing the famed music producer who as an A&R man discovered the band and Orlando Bloom cameos while sporting a vintage Def Jam jacket in homage to the group’s former record label.
The baby arrived Thursday, January 6th, or so says the New York Daily News, undoubtedly getting their info from X17 online. However, other sites are reporting that the baby came today.
