Peter Jackson Says Ian Holm Is In THE HOBBIT Movie...

Merrick here...

THIS post on Peter Jackson's Facebook page reveals a few details about THE HOBBIT, including a long-awaited confirmation that Ian Holm will appear as an older Bilbo (Martin Freeman is portraying his younger incarnation).  

Per Jackson's message...

One comment that came up from the recent video blog was the Bilbo voice at the end—many of you assumed it was Sir Ian Holm. Whilst Ian will be returning as the older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit, that recording was actually Martin Freeman's voice, taken from a script read through we recorded when the cast first arrived. I have to admit, I wasn't sure who it was when I first heard it, either. Cheers, Peter J

The video blog/production diary Jackson references is available HERE, and/or is embedded below.  The specific quote he's talking about happens 'round 10:16.
