I don't know

I don't think I had anyone's image when I read the books and while I mostly liked the actor LOTR choices, the three that stick out to me where Frodo, Aragorn and Arwen.
Frodo was too young, they should have used someone older (and hopefully they will for Hobbit), and not at all up to the role (as opposed to the wonderful Sean Astin who pretty much saves they day hobbit-wise in the movies). I liked Mortensen as the mysterious Strider but he did not convince me as "king of Men" Aragorn, again someone a tad older would have fit the bill better. Arwen...no way. Just a pretty face and nothing of the elegance and timeless grace that the movie Galadriel had.

I agree with you about Arwen (I didn't like how the character was scripted nor Liv's performance) and about Galadriel (Kate Blanchet was perfect). About an actor older than Mortensen, I'm not sure.

Martin Freeman ? He did looked scared enough in Hitchhiker's guide, but I'm not sure he'd be a good Bilbo. So far, unless something major is preventing it, I say keep Ian Holm as Bilbo.

It's so difficult to understand that's impossible???
