POLL: Who should play Bilbo Baggins?

Posted by LiveFor on January 13, 2010

Guillermo del Toro’s adaption of The Hobbit draws ever nearer to production. However, there is still no word on who will play the young Bilbo Baggins (Ian Holm played him in The Lord of the Rings).

Therefore, I put it to you to pick the actor from the list below who you feel would be best suited for the role.

  1. I am not familiar enough with a lot of these guys. I do think Peter Dinklage is great-but I know they won’t cast him-on the bright side for him (and us) is his casting as Tyrion in George RR Martins Song of Ice and Fire-he is my favorite character in that series.

    I always thought Ian Hart would be great as a young Bilbo.
