Del Toro and Jackson know who their Bilbo is
Over the weekend we heard what Peter Jackson, and Guillermo Del Toro had to say on The Hobbit and it's sequel. And now Guillermo Del Toro is teasing us even more, by saying that they have agreed who their first choice is to play Bilbo.
Trouble is he's not being very forthcoming about who it is. Isn't it a little early in the day to be teasing us?
We are writing based on [Ian Holm's performance], but other than that, we have ideas [of who could play him]. I can tell you that it's down to a few names that we all agree upon. And that our first choice...completely, magically, we said the same name. All of us!
Arrgh. Given that we probably won't get any definite casting information for about a year, that's just plain cruel. Anybody fancy taking a guess who it is?
