Peter Jacksons “The Hobbit” officially was greenlighted a few days ago, and now we can start to look forward to the two part adventure for Bilbo Baggins. Today we see maybe perhaps the biggest news since the one that Peter Jackson is directing the movies after Del Toro left the project. Because now its official that the British actor Martin Freeman will play Bilbo. Martin Freeman recently played Dr. John Watson in the TV-series Sherlock Holmes and is also known as Arthur Dent from the movie adaption of The Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy. Its an exciting casting choice indeed and we also got some more names for the part of dwarfs. Richard Armitage will be playing Thorin Oakenshield, leader of the dwarfs and among the rest we see Aidan Turner, Rob Kazinsky, Graham McTavish, John Callin, Stephen Hunter, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton.
