Before Martin Freeman was officially announced to have won the role of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, there was a lot of internet campaigns backing him for the role. Now, Martin has spoken about the internet support but insists that it did not win him the role.

While talking to The Sun, Freeman explained, “I have enough faith in Peter to know. I know that because he has said to me about other things he’s done where he has taken maybe too much notice of what was being said on the internet, and actually been given a bum steer.”
 
He added, “And I think he’s learned from that. We can all look on the internet and go, ‘He hates me. Oh, but she loves me. Oh, but he hates me’. And that way, madness lies. So I think, ‘Yeah, it’s very nice’ — it’s gratifying that people wanted me to be in it. But they didn’t get me the job.”
