Martin Freeman is set to appear on the big screen as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit trilogy but he admits that he has never read the book. Martin says that he learnt as much as he could about Middle Earth from director Peter Jackson.

Freeman told People magazine, “I hadn't read any of the books actually. I got familiar with Middle Earth through Peter Jackson's films. Now I can see why people love that world so much.” He then went on to talk about spending a year and a half in New Zealand, while they filmed the movies.
 
He added, “It was lovely to have the time to get to know people properly. I'm a homebody so I like putting a DVD on and having a beer. But Ian McKellen was the kind of the social scene. Night's round Gandalf's house. There was a lot of that.”

Martin continued, “The foot prosthetic comes halfway up your thigh, sort of like stockings. If you've got hairy legs then it's agony. So you have to powder your legs first.”
 
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be released in the UK on December 13 and in the US on December 14. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will then be released on December 13, 2013 in both the US and the UK before The Hobbit: There and Back Again is released on July 18, 2014.
