Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins —
It has been 60 years prior to the events in the "Lord of the Ring," so how can you fill the shoes of the legendary Sir Ian Holm? In "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," actor Martin Freeman manages to take those few cherished moments you knew and love in the original trilogy and magnify them.
In the pursuit of Freeman, whom had to check out of the role because of scheduling conflicts, director Peter Jackson was quoted as saying, "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."
In this film, he is profound, funny, brave and good with a riddle of two—exactly like Bilbo and you'll be excited to see him in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey".
