Now he’s a father, Goode doesn’t even like travelling that much. But just before we met, he’d auditioned for the role of Bilbo Baggins in Guillermo del Toro’s two-part film of The Hobbit. As he is the first to admit, he’s not an obvious choice – ‘Look at the size of me for Christ’s sake!’ If he got the part, he would, he says, find it almost impossible to refuse – despite the fact that it would involve him spending several months in New Zealand....says the Telegraph HERE. Again, there's no indication at all to suggest Goode is the direction Guillermo & Co. will ultimately head. Just thought it was interesting to know that he is/was, at one point at least, a possible Bilbo.
