The Hobbit – First Glimpse

Here are the first glimpses of The Office star Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in Lord of the Rings prequel, ‘The Hobbit’. According to director Peter Jackson, he got quite a shock when he saw the schedule for the adaption.¬†‘I felt a terrible drop in my stomach when I saw that we’d be shooting for 254 days’, he told Entertainment Weekly, ‘We’re only 12 days short of The Lord of the Rings even though we’re only doing two movies!” Jackson went on to say that he warned returning star Ian McKellen (Gandalf) that¬†”this isn’t Waiting for Godot or King Lear. This is The Hobbit. This is the real thing.”
