Sherlock’s Benedict Cumberbatch in The Hobbit?
Actor Benedict Cumberbatch has more than just an interesting name and smart good looks. His acting resume includes the BBC drama Hawking, for which he portrayed the infamous Stephen Hawking in 2004, and the role of Sherlock Holmes in the Steven Moffat created 2010 BBC TV series, Sherlock. What’s next for the actor? How about a visit to The Shire?
There was a recent Tweet from Lizo Mzimba, a London-based journalist, which read thus:
“Martin Freeman just said Benedict Cumberbatch will be in The Hobbit.”
No confirmation yet, but color we at BoomTron, quite interested! When we learn more, you will, too.
Of course there are plenty of actors who are confirmed to appear in The Hobbit, Peter Jackson’s prequel and return to Tolkien’s Middle Earth.
Of course, Martin Freeman will definitely be along. Why? He’s our young Bilbo! The British actor is linked to Cumberbatch, as he is his Dr. Watson! for that role, he has won the 2011 BAFTA Award for Best Supporting Actor. Freeman also appeared in the UK’s The Office.
On the big screen Freeman has appeared in Hot Fuzz, Shaun of the Dead, and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy.
