Another Sherlock Actor Joins The Hobbit?

Sherlock Holmes Cumberbatch Freeman
The Guardian is reporting that Martin Freeman who will play Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming The Hobbit movie, let slip that his Sherlock co-star, Bennedict Cumberbatch will also be joining the cast in NZ. Apparently the casting was supposed to remain a secret and Cumberbatch is remaining mum as to which role he will actually portray.

Freeman joked that he “might not have a job to go back to.” Personally, I very much doubt that, and can’t wait to see both Sherlock actors in action on the Middle-earth set.

The Hobbit has a planned December 2012 release date.
