The Master of Bag End.


‘There’s no way you can pace yourself for shoots like these,’ Jackson says. ‘When we were going through the schedule for The Hobbit, I felt a terrible drop in my stomach when I saw that we’d be shooting for 254 days. We’re only 12 days short of The Lord of the Rings even though we’re only doing two movies.

More big news from Middle-Earth: EW gets the first official pic of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. “‘He fits the ears, and he’s got some very nice feet,’ Jackson says of his Bilbo. ‘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.’

  1. My question is: what is Bilbo reading? Did the dwarves make him sign some sort of contract? Or is it info on Thorin’s claim or something? I don’t remember it.

  2. Ya, I was thinking it was some sort of contract for hiring a burglar’s services and/or divvying up the spoils, along with sundry non-disclosure requirements and anti-competitive clauses.
