Peter Jackson Confirms Ian Holm’s Return As Older Bilbo In ‘The Hobbit’

Another cast member of Peter Jackson‘s Lord of the Rings trilogy is returning for the two-part movie adaptation of The Hobbit.

Jackson confirmed via his Facebook page that Sir Ian Holm will be coming back to do work as the older Bilbo Baggins seen in LOTR. It’s unclear just how big Holm’s role will be in the two films with the younger Bilbo taking center stage for the majority of the time. As we all should know by now, Martin Freeman will be playing the younger Bilbo.

The confirmation came when fans were asking if the voice at the end of the recent video that was posted was Holm’s. Jackson posted “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.”

The Hobbit is currently filming in New Zealand, with part one set for release in 2012 and part 2 following the year after.
