Peter Jackson Confirms Ian Holm in The Hobbit

||

If you watched that awesome ten-minute production diary from the set of The Hobbit, you probably heard Bilbo’s voice at the end of it. Ever since that hit the ‘net, there has been a raging fanboy debate whether or not it was Martin Freeman or Ian Holm doing the voice over. We thought it was Freeman, because what better way to reveal the first hint of his Bilbo then by having him read that famous line? Well, Peter Jackson has confirmed it via his Facebook that it was indeed Martin Freeman as well as confirming that Ian Holm will be appearing in The Hobbit as the older Bilbo:

One comment that came up from the recent video blog was the Bilbo voice at the end—many of you assumed it was Sir Ian Holm. Whilst Ian will be returning as the older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, that recording was actually Martin Freeman’s voice, taken from a script read through we recorded when the cast first arrived. I have to admit, I wasn’t sure who it was when I first heard it, either. Cheers, Peter J
