who do you think would be good as bilbo in the Hobbit? by kingofgondor on 20 February 2004 5:09pm
 
Tell me some examples of actors who would suit the role of a keen, young hobbit, looking for an adventure!

I think michael palin should play bilbo in the hobbit.

good idea!
as Bilbo and Palin both have similarities, they both travel a lot!

How bout the guy that already plays him, Ian Holm? They can do great things with makeup. Plus, in FOTR, they already showed that Bilbo picking up the ring, i'll be annoyed if they change it.

You've got a good point there, even though he is about 50 years younger in the hobbit. Gandalf does say in the fellowship that Bilbo hasn't aged a day, because of the effect by the ring. If they gave him a brown wig instead of grey it could work. But they'd have to use makeup because Bilbo, in the hobbit, is supposed to be the same age as frodo was in the FOTR.

good idea again people!
Both Michael Palin and Ian Holmes would make a good hoobit as they both are familiar to travelling alot (Ian Holmes more to the movies).

Ricki I'm sorry to correct you but it's Ian Holm.

Ian Holm would of been the right age around the time he played "Ash" in Alien (1979).

But now he's getting on quite a bit. But it's still possible.

I vote for comedian "Harry Hill"...LOL

Or, "the man with the scores.George Doors"

Perhaps Anthony Hopkins (too old and heavy now).

Harry Hill? George Doors?
Bilbo wasn't bold godfather!
