Good morning, willing. Reporter: Yeah, a lot going on for Orlando bloom at home and professionally. In "The outpost" he plays a crucial role in the story, a true story of a deadly battle in Afghanistan. It's a role that bloom says meant a lot to him as an actor and as a man. It's just a tale. Reporter: In his career Orlando bloom has played a pirate sailing the seven seas. Here they come. Reporter: And an elf battling for middle Earth. Now in his latest role in the film "The outpost," bloom is yet again in a faraway land this, time as a real-life American soldier, lieutenant Ben Keating. Our outpost still a target of insurgents in case you hadn't noticed. I wanted to portray him and do justice to this man and the family that he left behind and I got a real sense of who this man was and he was just such a hero. Reporter: Based on a book by former ABC correspondent Jake tapper, "The outpost" depicts the deadly ambush by the Taliban on American troops in remote Afghanistan on October 3rd, 2009. The Taliban are here. Let's show some love. What drew you to the project? We sometimes forget the men in the middle that have who are family men, who are fathers, who are sons, who were men doing what they believe is the right course of action for their country and with flag on their sleeve and with no fear and courage and integrity. Reporter: Bloom says playing a hero on screen inspired him personally. I aspire to be one of those men in my life and to play one is a great sense of honor and responsibility and I'm grateful for it. Reporter: The 43-year-old has other off camera responsibilities on the horizon with fiancee Katy Perry. So much is about to change for you. You're about to be a girl dad. How are you feeling? I'm excited. It's a magical time, you know, when an angel pops on to the planet which is what it feels like for me. I'm like, you know, those quiet times at home just, you know, you and the family and a little one and nursing and just sort of being present and seeing where you can help and what you can do to nurture the life into the world. Reporter: Bloom can't wait for bonding time with his new baby girl. I'm really looking forward to those very late nights where I'll probably be getting up and doing a bottle, breast-feed bottle thing. You know what I mean? I'll -- I'm looking forward to that because I love those quiet times at night when the world is asleep and you've got a sleeping baby. Reporter: Exciting time for Orlando bloom. He told me he worked closely with lieutenant Keating's parents to accurately capture who their son was all the way down to that very specific new England accent. "The outpost" is in select theaters and streaming everywhere tomorrow. Lara. All right, will, looks amazing. Thank you so much.
