Yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

I had chosen him as my preference for Bilbo from when I saw Hitchhikers Guide in the theatre, and declared as much to anyone within earshot. When I heard he was cast as Bilbo I bragged and bragged. "Called it! Called it!". I may have been somewhat annoying about it.

Seeing AUJ confirmed it for me. He was a living Bilbo through and through. I stayed with him as he grew as a character and was reminded of how the character grew in the book. Even if it unfolded a bit differently in the movie, in spirit it did honor to the book, largely due to Freeman's performance. He was robbed of an Oscar nom, IMO.

A bag is like a hole that you can carry with you.
