Martin Freeman And Benedict Cumberbatch On The Set Of “The Hobbit”

Peter Jackson posted an amazing photo of the Sherlock and Hobbit costars on set in New Zealand.

1. Jackson captioned the photo, “Smaug admires Bilbo’s feet.”

2. The director also posted this photo of Martin Freeman leaving the set for the last time on Friday, his last day of shooting as Bilbo Baggins.

Jackson wrote:

Tonight Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins. The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role - a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill.

We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. We now enter our final 2 weeks of pick-ups, and it’s wall to wall dwarves. These pick-ups have been gruelling and intense, but I’m so happy with what we’ve been shooting. These next two movies are going to be pretty great!
