Ian Holm Will Be Returning to Middle-earth

In a comment made on his facebook page, Peter Jackson confirmed that Ian Holm will be reprising his role as an older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit Films. Here is the comment he made on facebook:

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
