The Hobbit’s Martin Freeman Dubs Himself Geek Prince, We Don’t Argue

I'll Allow It

“I’m geek royalty now. That’s the main responsibility. It’s not playing Bilbo, it’s my responsibility as a geek prince.” – Hobbit star Martin Freeman speaking at the New York premiere of The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey.

Freeman is of course also stars in BBC’s Sherlock, The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Shaun of the Dead. Enough to make him a Prince, or is The Hobbit enough?

He also told reporters, “I hope by the time my life is over I’ve given [fans] something else to talk about but I think in all reality I think it’s very likely that they’ll be calling me Bilbo.”

Speaking of fans, several paid $500 to attend the premiere. Proceeds went to the American Film Institute.
