Martin Freeman/Ian Holm Comparison in Film Can't Post

This came to me a few days ago and I wonder what others have to say about it. Do you think that Martin Freeman really did do his homework when trying to, albeit keeping his own artistic style, emulate a younger Ian Holm? I remember going to see The Hobbit for the first time and trying to notice little details like voice intonation, mannerisms, etc. Some parts I definitely did see a resemblance but in others not so much and that might not necesarrily be a bad thing. Maybe the years really did change Bilbo? :P

I remember watching an interview where he did say he took time to watch and study Holm in the LOTR films, but I wonder, to the audience, how much of that was shown.
