Gandalf [In reply to] Can't Post

Personally, I would have liked Martin Freeman as Bilbo. However, as he's not had the opportunity to grace the screen in that role, I am confident there are others that (given the opportunity) will nail the role. At least do it around the very high parameters that Ian Holm laid out.

My bigger worry is ensuring our Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) will be available when this thing finally gets off the schnide......
