Martin Freeman might be known all over the world for his role as Bilbo Baggins, but as part of a ‘Saturday Night Live’ sketch, he’s revisited one of his original roles in ‘The Office’.
Bilbo might be best known as an adventurer, famed for his dragon-slaying, treasure-retrieving quests in ‘The Hobbit’ film series, but it turns out when it’s all over, all he really wants to do is flog paper over the phone, much like Martin’s character in the original British ‘Office’, Tim.
‘The Office: Middle Earth’ also features several other characters from the famous film series, including Gandalf, who is revealed to be a pretty decent “general manager”, in addition to his wizarding ability, inspired by Ricky Gervais’ original David Brent character.

Hilariously, we also get to see Gollum working in sales while wearing a suit and tie, and the whole Middle Earth staff having a boogie at the office Christmas party.

The final film in the ‘Hobbit’ series, ‘The Battle Of Five Armies’ hit cinemas earlier this month, and stars Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage and Luke Evans.
Orlando Bloom also reprises his role of Legolas, which he originated in the ‘Lord Of The Rings’ trilogy, though when he was snapped at the film’s premiere in London two weeks ago, he didn’t seem too happy to pose next to one of his particularly handsy co-stars.
