Definitely ... [In reply to] Can't Post

    

He even sounds like him. The way he says "a howling gale from France!" in this clip. Shocked It's pure Bilbo!

Still trying to guage his height, but no idea if that's a medium height or shorter actress he's standing next to there, so very tricky.

Height Hugh Bonneville [In reply to] Can't Post

Hugh Bonneville isn't that short, he is 1,87 meter or 6ft1,75in.
I don't know how they are going to film the hobbit, but I think they try to cast Bilbo shorter than the dwarves. Ofcourse if he can act they should consider him.

Damn ... [In reply to] Can't Post

   

Same height as me. Unsure Well, everything else about him is so perfect compared to names suggested so far who are more in the right height range, it'd be a shame if it ruled him out of the running. (and didn't Matthew Goode audition for Bilbo? He's quite a tall fella, I recall.)

No idea if the Bilbo casting call sheet says in the small print words to the effect of: "Only actors in the 5 ft - 5 ft 8 bracket need apply" the heightist, swines! Wink

But I'm still in camp Hugh. He exudes Bilbo-ness from every pore.

Well, he does look a bit like him. And I will appreciate it if they cast an unknown.

But I won't pick a side. As long as it isn't McAvoy...

Hugh Bonneville [In reply to] Can't Post

HB has been discussed quite extensively and favourably on these boards before... as a quick serach for 'Bonneville' will attest.

Personally, he'd be my choice for Bilbo, with Freeman a close second. At this late stage though, I don't doubt Bilbo has been tested and cast - and only a Stuart Townsend-like situation or protracted delays will alter whoever they already have in mind.

[here's hoping though!]
