Could Martin Freeman appear as Bilbo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power? The ‘The Hobbit’ actor is opening up about a possible comeback.

  • Martin Freeman starred as the legendary hobbit Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy.
  • He has now been asked if he will reprise the role in the Amazon series The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power.
  • He’s a diplomat, but he seems to know that a comeback probably doesn’t fit the concept of the show.

‘The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power’ begins September 2, 2022 and is a prequel to Peter Jackson’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ and ‘The Hobbit’ movies. Not in the traditional sense, however, as the series is set around 3,000 years earlier and therefore has little connection to the films in terms of plot.

But what did the British magazine hold subway didn’t hold back from asking “The Hobbit” star Martin Freeman to appear as Bilbo Baggins if the opportunity arose. “Having not seen the show, all I can do is wish him good luck and happiness,” the Sherlock star explains.

“I wish them all the best and hope it goes well because I always want things to go well,” Freeman said. “Whether I would come back really depends on who would implement it and why,” he said when asked.

Freeman doesn’t want to come back if it doesn’t fit the show. After all, roles like Galadriel and Elrond have been recast and an appearance of Martin Freeman’s Bilbo might distract viewers from the viewing experience: “But like all those things, it really depends on who’s behind it.”

Freeman is very diplomatic. He and we know he’s unlikely to ever put his hobbit feet back on. Although never say never, after all Eowyn star Miranda Otto returns years later in ‘The Lord of the Rings’.

Whether with or without Martin Freeman, at least for the moment without, season 1 of “The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power” will begin very soon on Amazon Prime Video. It’s already confirmed and in preparation: season 2 of the Lord of the Rings series is coming!
