Ah! The rumours!

Remember just a year ago we would have a Sam Raimi Hobbit without Jackson's involvement whatsoever, and Bob Shaye in charge of the movie?

Need I say more?

Radcliffe is a no no, I assure you... you can't have a Potter be a Baggins, as a Gandalf was wise enough not to become a Dumbledore.

Jack Black? That has been said before, and dates back to a 2005 King Kong interview where Jack Black says Peter Jackson told him (late at night after bar night), that he would be Bilbo. It appered in Empire, Vanity Fair or one of those big magazines.

McAvoy I can see. He looks like a Hobbit. And we know he would appear in fantasy... he has also been mentioned since day minus 3. Even though he is another Mr. Darcy, and I believe someone (sorry, don't recall who) here says it would be weird to see Mr. Darcy (Colin Firth) as Mr. Baggins.

Martin Freeman has troubles telling a hobbit apart from a troll... http://moviesblog.mtv.com/...-ride-to-the-hobbit/ but that can be fixed.

Come on! Del Toro comes out and says they have someone in mind and the next day the name comes out... I don't think so.

Ah! The days of a Raimi-Shaye SpiderHobbit with an entirely new cast, since everyone would remain absolutely loyal to the shunned Jackson...!

I believe we should wait the year Guillermo said we would need to wait. Wink

Here's to Del Toro becoming the Irvin Kershner of Middle Earth!
