Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins [Pics]

Entertainment Weekly has the first look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming The Hobbit.

How does Jackson feel about the casting?

”He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet,” Jackson says of his Bilbo. ”I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far. They’re a little bit hard to walk in, but he’s managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.”

And because I’m a fan of Sir Ian McKellan, here’s a shot of him reprising his role as Gandalf.

What say you, Geeks? Does Martin Freeman look like he’s a pretty good Bilbo?

  1. i just want the enjoyment of going to see another LOTR film in the theatres, even if it is a prequel. I was to young when i saw them the first time to fully enjoy them, now that im older im looking forward to once again taking a dip into Tolkiens mind and sitting through Jacksons fine film work.

    • You do know that AMC theatres across the US have been playing the LotR Trilogy for the past 2 weeks in preparation for The Hobbit right? Unfortunately Fellowship and Two Towers have already played. You can catch Return of the King this coming Tuesday though.

      • Not just AMC theatres.  Cinemark, Regal, etc.  Anybody who hosts fathom events.  Go to Fathom website for more info.  I missed Fellowship because of a family crisis, but was at Towers and going to  Return of the King.  PJ had specially recorded intro just for the event,

  2. I feel slightly odd about Arthur Dent and Bilbo being the same person…  but he is an amazing actor, Jackson wouldn't have cast him if he weren't perfect for the role :-)
