Rumors and UPDATE- This IS NOT The Face Of Bilbo Baggins!

As a rule, I never ever believe what I read in The Sun newspaper as they have this thing about trying to get people's attention by coming up with questionably 'sensational' news headlines , but it must be said that there is never smoke without fire. Today an article entitled 'THE LORD OF THE SPIN' is claiming that Tobey Maguire will be Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit ? (*See Update) . No source is given for this claim therefore we must take the news with a pinch of salt. Maguire just pulled out from starring in Spider-Man 4 as he was not happy with the direction of the movie, however this alone its not confirmation he will take the role of Bilbo Baggins. Stay tuned hobbits....hopefully we will get more news (and less spin, please ) soon. :)


*UPDATE (5 PM U.K. Time) : Well it did not take long for the very reliable thonering.net to check things out and come out with an update on this rumour

No Spider-Bilbo folks :)
