McAvoy loves Tolkien… and wants Holm as Bilbo

James McAvoy

Forummer LordotRings93 has shared this note in the forums, from MTV Movie Blog, which have followed The Hobbit process closely:

“I’m a huge fan of the Tolkien saga, everything to do with Middle-earth,” he reiterated this weekend to MTV News. “But no there’s no truth in the fact that they’ve approached me yet.”

But that won’t stop McAvoy from playing along with our readers. So who would he cast in the role made famous by Ian Holm?

“Ian Holm!” McAvoy proclaimed as if the answer was self-evident. “I don’t know if he’d be able to go back, but he SHOULD do it.”

He said he hadn’t been approached yet. Could he be later? Either way, we will find about casting decisions straight from Guillermo del Toro, as he, himself told us a couple weeks ago. [MTV Movie Blog]
