Freeman still wanted as The Hobbit
Movie bosses are still hoping to cast Martin Freeman in The Hobbit - they're set to delay filming to accommodate the star's busy schedule, according to reports.
The actor was forced to turn down the role of Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming Middle Earth epic due to commitments on BBC series Sherlock, in which he plays the sleuth's sidekick Dr Watson.
A source tells the Daily Express, "It's hoped something will be worked out. It's widely felt that Martin is ideal for the role."
