GDT’s Approval of Martin Freeman As Bilbo Baggins Is 100%

October 26, 2010 at 4:56 am by Earl  - 

Here’s word on what once-upon-a-time-Hobbit-director Guillermo del Toro has to say about the casting choices revealed for The Hobbit films thus far:

“I have the perfect actor for every character in the movie, but I don’t feel morally correct to saying who now that I’m not directing. But [about Martin Freeman playing Bilbo Baggins] absolutely, 100%. I’m a huge fan of his. I love him in The Office and Love Actually.”

As far as his decision to leave the director’s chair of the two-part movie, GDT says:

“[It’s] a hard thing when you’ve spent two years on a movie and it’s going nowhere”.
