Just boosting the signal on the awesome news that Martin Freeman has officially, after a fuckton of speculation, been cast as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit.

I love Tolkien, but have never liked The Hobbit much. This may change my mind.

If they could only cast BC now as Smaug--he's said it's his dream role--and he sure has the voice for it!
  • Oh, man.... he could totally voice a dragon, no doubt yes. In fact, I vote that BC be given exclusive rights to dub anything that takes his fancy, for ever and ever amen ;-P
    • Amen, sister! You know that saying about enjoying somebody read the phone book? In BC's case I think it's quite literally true--

      Jaguar inside a cello? no more--he's a dragon inside a string bass--

      (the Merlin-dragon voice, John Hurt, was just cast in the new Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy (another of my fav books ever) with--you guessed it--BC. Quite a dragon-voiced movie, that!)
  • The idea of Benedict voicing a dragon does make my brain want to explode just a little with joy.
  • I really want to hug Martin X3

    I'm also not a fan of The Hobbit, but I'll definitely check it out for the cast... who knows, maybe I'll end up liking it? :3

    If they could only cast BC now as Smaug--he's said it's his dream role--and he sure has the voice for it!
    THIS!
    • oh, I want to hug him too! I can already see him now, with the feet!

      and dragon!Benedict just has to happen!
