Creator: Martin Freeman
aka: MARTINFREEMAN

There is no denying, however, that I'm in The fucking Hobbit, playing the fucking hobbit.
Martin Freeman, on his casting in The Hobbit (relevant moment at 31:25)

Martin Freeman is a BAFTA-winning British actor who is best known for playing Deadpan Snarker, Charismatic Everyman, and/or Badass Adorable characters. He is made of jam, kittens, cuddly jumpers, and RAGE. Also, he is a hedgehog. He is also a terrible dresser (although opinion is divided about that, he does pick some outrageous outfits from time to time).

Some of his roles include:

As well as a killer deadpan delivery style, he has truly epic facial expressions of exasperation and despondency, such that he can take on other so-called leaders in the field and blow them out of the water!

In Real Life it would seem that he is also quite the master of the Precision F-Strike (see examples cited on this page). Of course his natural aptitude as a Deadpan Snarker probably helps with this.

When it was announced that he was to play Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson's movie version of The Hobbit, much of the fandom rejoiced. So did Jackson, who was so desperate for Freeman to play the eponymous Hobbit that he reworked his entire shooting schedule to allow Freeman time to film the second series of Sherlock, which was scheduled to film in the middle of shooting for the trilogy and which would have otherwise prevented Freeman from taking the role.

He currently resides just outside London with his partner, fellow actress Amanda Abbington (Mr Selfridge). They have two children.

Not to be confused with Morgan Freeman who is also a brilliant character actor, but of completely different age, height, ethnicity and nationality.
