Also, the much awaited news of The Hobbit, which has recently been given the greenlight was released today. After several rumours to the contrary, Martin Freeman (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, BBC's Sherlock) has been confirmed for the role of Bilbo Baggins. Also, Richard Armitage (BBC's Robin Hood) and Aiden Turner (BBC's Being Human) are confirmed as two of the dwarfs that accompany Bilbo.
Unconfirmed for the movie are Stephen Fry, Bill Nighy and David Tennant, but since the cast already includes Ian McKellen, Hugo Weaving, Cate Blanchett and Andy Serkis reprising their roles as Gandalf, Elrond, Galadriel and Gollum, The Hobbit has a solid cast already. I can only hope that Stephen Fry is cast as the voice of the dragon, now that would be awesome. More on this on blastr.com.
What do you think about these choices? Do you think they'll do justice to the roles?
