Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release
More casting news!
Tweeted first by BBC Entertainment Reporter Lizo (here), apparently Bilbo Baggins, aka Martin Freeman, has let slip that fellow ‘Sherlock’ actor Benedict Cumberbatch has a role in The Hobbit. Seems like a good pick for casting, but what role will he play? Share your thoughts in our comments, discussion board and on facebook! (Personally, I think he looks rather Elven. But his name is so Hobbitish!)
Let the speculation begin!
I agree with the writer that Cumberbatch looks Elven. Talk, skinny and pale. Whatever role he has, I just hope he shares at least one scene with Freeman.
