I’m a huge Tolkein fan. I’m a huge Peter Jackson fan. I’m a huge BBC’s The Office fan. Yeah the obnoxious, snooty kind of fan that hated the first season of the US version when it came out because it was a lesser derivative of the original. I’m also a huge Hitchhiker’s Guide fan who was entertained by the movie. So when I read today that Martin Freeman will be playing Bilbo in the upcoming Hobbit film I was damn near giddy.
