Freeman and Holm both playing Bilbo in The Hobbit

Martin Freeman won't be the only actor playing Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit.

Director Peter Jackson posted on his Facebook page that Ian Holm, who played Bilbo in the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, will reprise his role as the elderly Baggins in the two-part screen adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic.

The Hobbit is now filming in New Zealand, with Part 1 set for a late 2012 debut.
