The Hobbit Movie Martin Freeman

Director Peter Jackson confirmed that Actor Martin Freeman will play as the Hobbit:

"Despite the various rumors and speculation surrounding this role, there has only ever been one Bilbo Baggins for us. There are a few times in your career when you come across an actor who you know was born to play a role, but that was the case as soon as I met Martin Freeman. He is intelligent, funny, surprising and brave - exactly like Bilbo and I feel incredibly proud to be able to announce that he is our Hobbit."
Director Peter Jackson

The cast of the Hobbit will also includes:

- Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, leader of the Dwarves, whose grandfather ruled the Lonely Mountain settlement destroyed by Smaug.
- Aidan Turner and Rob Kazinsky as Kili and Fili, nephews of Thorin.
- Graham McTavish as Dwalin, blue-bearded, first to arrive at the home of Bilbo Baggins.
- John Callen as Oin, skillful fire-maker. Brother of Gloin.
- Stephen Hunter as Bombur, the fat, sleepy and slow member of Thorin’s company.
Mark Hadlow as Dori, strongest of the Dwarves, who carries Bilbo on his back at one point.
- Peter Hambleton as Gloin, brother of Oin, initially suspicious of Bilbo’s worth, but eventually convinced. Father of Gimli from The Lord of the Rings.

More details about the Hobbit soon.

Was Bilbo a thief or a spy?
The facts in the matter don't lie,
When he saw the Ring,
He needed the thing,
His hands in his pockets? Oh my!
