Hello, I would like to suggest an actor I think would fulfill what I had in mind as I read the Hobbit the first time; Nick Frost http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0296545/
. I know that Nick Frost has played more comical roles, yet Bilbo doesn't start out all that daring or sure footed. I really want to see a round Bilbo, and I have no interest in watching a movie that shows Bilbo as a brave skinny hero right from the get go. I would rather see an American like Jorge Garcia play our beloved Bilbo Baggins rather then any skinny actor out there.
