Martin Freeman Can't Post

I just received the AUJ visual guide to which Martin Freeman wrote the forward. Every interview or movie clip or something like this forward making me happier that he was chosen for the role. In the forward his feelings of the honor and privilege to play Bilbo in Tolkien's work clearly show. He comments on what a huge project(2+ years at least for him) and how the scope and scale is beyond anything he thought he might work or will work on again. He also seems in awe of the work and craftsmanship that went into the designs, sets, and props and the overall passion and enthusiasm of the project.

Whatever else these movies bring, I am predicting his part in it will almost be universally praised and liked.
