McAvoy to play Bilbo?

May 29, 2008

There are rumors going around that James McAvoy is being concidered for the part of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit movie. As I’ve only seen him play Tumnus in Narnia, I can’t say much on his ability to act, but he is waaay to young for the part. Bilbo is supposed to be in his fiftiesBring Ian Holm back! According to The Lord Of The Rings, both book and movie, Bilbo is supposed to look the same in the Hobbit as he does in Lord of The Rings due to the influence of the Ring, so I don’t see why that can’t be done. True, Holm is older now, but that’s nothing make-up artists can’t fix. Thankfully, Ian McKellen is set to return as Gandalf.
