It was reported last month that Tobey Maguire was in the running to play Bilbo Baggins in Guillermo Del Toro’s The Hobbit, a prequel to The Lord of the Rings movies in which his look-alike and The Ice Storm co-star Elijah Wood starred as Frodo Baggins, Bilbo’s nephew. Maguire denied the rumors at the time, but they’re back now that there’s no lingering Spider-Man issues to worry about. Two sources are now claiming he’s taking on the title role, but there’s no official announcement as yet, and likely won’t be until next week.
