Exclusive: Martin Freeman Turns Down ‘Nice Guy’ Roles, Wants to go Darker

May 9, 2022

Martin Freeman is well-known and beloved as the respectable, kind, and cheery Bilbo Baggins, the lead character of The Hobbit movies in Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings universe. This is hardly his only friendly and kind ‘nice guy’ character. Freeman got his start as the funny and arguably one of the most likable characters in the original British series The Office, Tim Canterbury (played by John Krasinski as Jim Halpert in the American version).
