Matthew Goode Auditioned for Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit"

Matthew Goode Auditioned for Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
During the BAFTA awards ceremony in London, the UK newspaper Telegraph had the chance to speak to Matthew Goode (Watchmen) to talk about his upcoming projects.

Goode revealed that sometime in the recent past he met with director Guillermo del Toro to audition for "The Hobbit" prequels. He said he was going for the Bilbo Baggins role.

Even though the audition went well, the 6'2 foot tall actor feels that he will likely not get the role due his height. "Look at the size of me for Christ's sake!" he exclaimed, adding that he would love to get the part.

I don't see this guy as Bilbo Baggins.

I stick to Ian Holm.

yeah he was cool in Watchmen. however he looks nothing like a young Bilbo would look like if they're going for the look of Bilbo from the previous films ...

Uh, no. Fagamandias isn't quite right for Bilbo Baggins. DAVID TENNANT ftw

Um, what the f*ck does his height have to do with it? John Rhys-Davies is 6'1 and he played Gimli. If his audition was good, cast him.

He auditioned to play Dildo Bagger? Is that about a guy that works at an adult gift shop?
