Breaking News: Benedict Cumberbatch Cast In The Hobbit

By Joanna Robinson | Industry | May 23, 2011 |

Anglophiles, rejoice. According to Martin Freeman (portrayer of both Bilbo Baggins and "Sherlock"'s Dr. Watson), Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock, himself) has a role in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. No definitive word yet on what role Cumberbatch will be playing (Freeman spilled the beans a bit early), but given his rising star, Slash Film is speculating he will have a significant role. Possibly as Bard the Bowmen.
