"Fuck you, I won a BAFTA."

There is no denying, however, that I'm in The fucking Hobbit, playing The fucking Hobbit.
Martin Freeman, on his casting in The Hobbit (as The Hobbit) (relevant moment at 31:25)

Martin Freeman is a BAFTA-winning British actor who is best known for playing Deadpan Snarker, Charismatic Everyman, and/or Badass Adorable characters. He is made of jam, kittens, cuddly jumpers, and RAGE. Also, he is a hedgehog.

Some of these roles include:

As well as a killer deadpan delivery style, he has truly epic facial expressions of exasperation and despondency, such that he can take on other so-called leaders in the field and blow them out of the water!

When it was announced that he was to play Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's movie version of The Hobbit, Much of the Fandom Rejoiced.

He currently resides just outside London with his partner, fellow actress Amanda Abbington (Case Histories). They have two children.

Not to be confused with Morgan Freeman who is also a brilliant character actor, but of completely different age, height, ethnicity and nationality.
