Bilbo may have been found, and he\’s perfect!


Entertainment Weekly has an exclusive today where they have found out that it may still be possible for Martin Freeman to play Bilbo Baggins. Previously, Freeman was tied up as Watson in the BBC’s new Sherlock series and it wouldn’t be possible for him to take time away to play Bilbo in The Hobbit films. However, MGM wants him so bad (and they should, he’s perfect for Bilbo!) that they have come up with a schedule that would allow him to film both the movie and his BBC series at the same time and EW says they are negotiating a deal now.
