Photos: First Look at Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT!
We about a year and a half from the theatrical release of The Hobbit. But that’s not too soon to get a bit of a peek into the production with these three exclusives from Entertainment Weekly. We get our first look at Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins (above). And quite a Bilbo he makes too. Here’s what P.J. has to say about him:
He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet … I think he’s got the biggest hobbit feet we’ve had so far. They’re a little bit hard to walk in, but he’s managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.
And speaking of feats, Ian McKellan is doing one of the hardest feats in the movie business: Playing younger. See how he fares after the jump.
Not too shabby, Sir Ian, not too shabby. You don’t look a day over 111!
And here’s P.J. directing Martin who has a suitably Hobbity look of attentiveness on his face. We likes. We really likes.
