First look at Martin Freeman in The Hobbit

Excited yet?

The titanic Entertainment Weekly have run three shots from the filming of The Hobbit, Peter Jackson’s eagerly anticipated, er, prequel of sorts to the Lord Of The Rings trilogy.

There’s one shot of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, one of him and Jackson and one of Gandalf – shame we’re going to have to wait ’til Christmas 2012 to see them in action.
