Entertainment Weekly has the first official image of the perfectly cast Martin Freeman (The Office, Sherlock) as Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit movies. In related news, I just let out a truly humiliating and remarkably girlish squeal of excitement.
If you follow that link, you'll see they also have one of Gandalf, in which he looks exactly like he looked in The Lord of the Rings, and one of Jackson in Bag End's kitchen with Freeman, which looks exactly like what you'd expect a picture to look if you were to take it of Freeman and Jackson in close proximity to a kitchen table. In other words, too boring for me to bother posting. In even more other words, holy shit, this Hobbit movie might actually come out at some point.
