Bilbo Baggins is Officially Cast for "The Hobbit"

Posted: August 24th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Bilbo Baggins is Officially Cast for "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
On Saturday, London's BFI IMAX theater held a special marathon screening of the extended editions of the entire "Lord of the Rings" trilogy. Star Ian McKellen was present at the screening, where he also spoke about "The Hobbit" films.

He confirmed that he will return as Gandalf and is expecting to begin work during March of next year. McKellen added that the starring role of Bilbo Baggins has already been cast and he knows exactly who was chosen.

Peter Jackson, who is producing "The Hobbit," recently revealed during Comic-Con that he has an actor in mind to play Bilbo, but will not be approaching him for a while. At least not until the script is complete. Apparently, he wasn't telling the whole truth.

And as far as casting goes, both David Tennant ("Doctor Who") and Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) have expressed lack of interest in "The Hobbit." And James McAvoy has recently signed on for a Cancer-themed comedy, which will begin shooting in January of next year. In other words, we don't have a clue who was cast as Bilbo Baggins.

He's going to play the part of Bilbo as a shy, bumbling, awkward Hobbit who's trying to impress the girl. Unlike everything else he's ever done.
