Martin Freeman: I get more fan mail for Sherlock than The Hobbit Can't Post

The Independent interviewed Martin Freeman recently, and although there are no Hobbit spoilers (sorry!) he does mention that he's recognised more for his work on Sherlock, than The Hobbit. If it's any consolation Martin, I've erased The Office from my mind completely.

A snippet:


Quote
Anonymity, he adds, can be a wonderful thing for a person, “but at the same time, I had to do The Hobbit, even if it was going to change the game for me. It was my one chance to do something that nearly everybody, at one point or another, was going to see. I've made other films that maybe I've loved more, but they haven't made a billion dollars.”


You know what this means now - we need to inundate him with fanmail! Where's my pen?!!

Smile

(Mods - I put this in Main simply because it had no Hobbit news, spoilers or speculation; and it's an interview promoting a different film entirely. Hope that's ok! Feel free to move.)

Coming soon! The first TORn Amateur Symposium, starts Sunday 21st July in the Reading Room. Closing date for essay submission Sunday 14th July, but even if you don't submit, join us for some interesting discussion on some different and personal ways of looking at Tolkien's work.
