ian holm will play older bilbo baggins in the hobbit

Lord of the Rings fans, rejoice! Bilbo is back!

Back in October, we were excited to learn that Love Actually/The Hitchhiker's Guide to The Galaxy star Martin Freeman had been cast as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit!

Now, we're EVEN MORE excited to report that Ian Holm will return as an older version of Bilbo in the epic LOTR prequel films.

Here's what Peter Jackson said about it on his Facebook page:

One comment that came up from the recent video blog was the Bilbo voice at the end—many of you assumed it was Sir Ian Holm. Whilst Ian will be returning as the older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, that recording was actually Martin Freeman's voice, taken from a script read through we recorded when the cast first arrived. I have to admit, I wasn't sure who it was when I first heard it, either. Cheers, Peter J

Such great news! We think both Bilbo actors will be wonderful!

Are U excited about Ian Holm's return as an older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit?

First Hobbit Casting Announcements!!!

Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm Flickers

first hobbit casting announcements released

Now that the film has gotten the greenlight and Hobbit drama has calmed down, the fun Hobbit updates can begin!

The lead character, Bilbo Baggins, will be played by Martin Freeman! You probably remember him as the endearing adult film actor from Love Actually. He's also appeared as Arthur Dent in The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. We think he's great for this role.

Here are some other major casting announcements:

-Richard Armitage (Captain America: The First Avenger) as Thorin Oakenshield, leader of the Company of Dwarves

-Aidan Turner (Being Human) and Rob Kazinsky (EastEnders) as Dwarves Kili and Fili

-Graham McTavish (Secretariat) as Dwalin

-John Callen (Power Rangers Jungle Fury) as Oin

-Stephen Hunter (All Saints) as Bombur

-Mark Hadlow (King Kong) as Dori

-Peter Hambleton (The Strip) as Gloin

Rumored cast members include Ian McKellen as Gandalf and Andy Serkis as Gollum.

Stephen Fry, Saoirse Ronan, and Bill Nighy are also on Peter Jackson's radar.

What do U think of these casting choices? Do U think they made the right choice for Bilbo Baggins?
