Martin Freeman 'excited about The Hobbit'

Report by Sam Datta-Paulin

Martin Freeman says he is excited about the Hobbit, but probably won't get to see it before anyone else.

The actor, who plays Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming film, was speaking at the Stand Up 2 Cancer gala in London on Friday night, and said that whilst he was thrilled with the movie and hoped it would be great, he had not actually seen any of it yet.

He went on to say that Peter Jackson was a "perfectionist" who would not let the film out until the last possible moment, which meant he would probably have to see it on general release.

Freeman did not have a bad word to say about Jackson though, telling reporters he was "brilliant", and joking that he "would go far".
