Martin Freeman may join Peter Jackson’s ‘Hobbit,’ talks resume

HollywoodNews.com: Stop the presses.

Martin Freeman, the British actor from “The Office,” is still in the running for the Bilbo Baggins lead in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit.”

U.K.’s The Sun originally reported that a scheduling conflict with the BBC “Sherlock Holmes” series prevented the actor from committing to the prolific role. In the show he portrays Dr. Watson.

However, EW.com confirms the following: “According to sources close to the ‘Hobbit’ production, it’s not over yet. New Line and MGM, the studios backing the ‘Hobbit’ films, have since come back to Freeman with a proposed schedule that would allow him to shoot both projects. All parties are currently negotiating a deal.”

When the ink is dried, Freeman will collect a seven figure payday for his work as a Middle Earth citizen.
