Martin Freeman ("The Office" UK and "The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy") has officially been confirmed as Bilbo Baggins in "The Hobbit." If Peter Jackson were to ask my opinion of this move (which he hasn't as of yet) I would say, "Bravo."
Shawn Ryan has agreed to write the script for a Tom Clancy adaptation focusing on John Kelly, who was played by Willem Dafoe in "Clear and Present Danger" and Liev Schrieber in "Sun of All Fears." If you're unfamiliar with Ryan, whose best work was done on the FX series "The Shield", trust me when I say he is probably the perfect choice for this script. AMAZING writer.
