I doubt Jack Black is a serious consideration, and Daniel Radcliffe is way to busy with the Potter movies until 2011.
Ideally I'd say bring back Ian Holm ("you haven't aged a day" ) but if for any reason he can't I won't mind a younger actor either (as long as he will have a physical similarity to Holm, since they both play the same character). It's good that PJ and GDT had the same idea for the actor and hopefully it's as perfect as Ian McKellen was for Gandalf - and it had better be a better Bilbo than Elijah Wood's Frodo.
