Martin Freeman Plays Bilbo Baggins Working at a Middle Earth Paper Company in ‘The Hobbit Office’

The Hobbit Office

While hosting Saturday Night Live, the wonderful actor Martin Freeman reprised his role as Bilbo Baggins in “The Hobbit Office”, a sketch that parodied both The Hobbit and The Office at the same time. Bilbo Baggins, who is now working at a paper company, opens up to a film crew that’s making a documentary about his office.

What have I been up to? Well, I went on a quest, saved Middle Earth, became a bit of a hero, did the noble thing and turned down loads of treasure. Yeah, so the brave hobbit Bilbo Baggins now works at a paper company, selling paper reams over the phone. And I drive a Jetta.
