    I think whoever plays it should be British. I HATE fake accents and you know every character in that movie will have a European/British accent. Bad accents can ruin a film for me! I'd love Ian Holm too but isn't he a bit too old now?

    Would love to see Iain Holm reprise his role!

    Totally agree on the bad accent point tho... My favorite worse accent is Keanu reeves in Bram Stokers Dracula. Its just so forced!

    It wouldve been better if he stuck to what he is best at...

    I liked Ian Holm as Bilbo, it would be nice to see him play that rola again and since he already did in the LOTR films I think It it would make sense for him to play Bilbo again.. Though I think Cymoril has a point, he might be a bit too old =/
    But I heard rumors that they were considerind Tobey Maguire and David Tennant for that role :O personally I realy don't think "spiderman" would be a good choice... I just doesn't seem right... I don't think he would look good as Bilbo =/ But David Tennant perhaps won't look so bad...
    I like Jack Black but I just can't picture him as Bilbo xD maybe as a dwarf....

    Same as most of the posts above. I'd love Ian Holm to play Bilbo again; he just seems to fit the role perfectly.

    I honestly think they should cast an actor that's not really well known. I dunno, but seeing a famous actor portraying Bilbo would suck.

    I want this guy:
