Don’t read this if you HATE to know the ending of a good story! From Ringer Miss Mac:
I Just got my Entertainment Weekly, and there is a little quote in the section called “ReelWorld” that I thought may be of interest to you guys.
We bring you news all the way from Middle-earth. Sir Ian Holm, who plays hobbit Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings:The Fellowship of the Ring, may not appear in the sequel, but don’t count him out of the trilogy totally. ‘I probably shouldn’t say this, but I’m back in three… as a very old man.’ Says Holm.
‘Bilbo just suddenly appears at the end of the movie and says ‘I’m ready for another adventure.’ He goes off with Frodo into the sunset.’
Sounds slightly hobbo-erotic to us.”-Rebecca Ascher-Walsh,Entertainment Weekly, #662, July 12, 2002
