Totally agree!!!

Yes! I would TOTALLY have to agree with this! Some of the suggestions I've seen on here are simply balderdash. Bilbo is a HOBBIT, not some sexy hot teenage actor. Shia LeBeouf??? Liem Aiken??? Tobey Maguire??? C'MON PEOPLE!!! Bilbo isn't supposed to invoke dirty thoughts in the minds of young teenage girls folks.

In Reply To
People keep suggesting people to cast for Bilbo to old or to young. He's...what, 50 in the books. In the movies you can make a character younger and it will still be accepted. But a teenager (looking at the person who suggested Liem Aiken)! Yeah hell no. Yes Elijah was 18...ish I think when he played Frodo, but that worked because Frodo is a whiny character anyway. Bilbo is a overly mature, scared-y cat. People need to stop dreaming that Bilbo will be sexy teenager who they can use in fanfictoin and start sticking closer to the books.

We've got the pretty boys (James McAvoy, and Tobey Maquire) the if-you-wanna-be-like-the-animated-movie (Toby Jones) and the evil Bilbo's (Tom Hollander). Some suggestions are kind scary. I like the unknown people like Reece Sheersmith.

But I am generally biased anyway. Martin Freeman is my favorite of the candidates. David Tennant wouldn't be bad either.

And lastly, who suggested Liam Aiken? ( I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I would like to be able to enjoy this movie too)

PLAY LOTRO!!! Find me, Ermanatar Silverleaf of Dale on the Silverlode server!!!
