‘The Hobbit’ meets ‘The Office’ in inspired ‘SNL’ sketch

‘The Hobbit’ meets ‘The Office’ in inspired ‘SNL’ sketch

SNL-Martin Freeman-Office

Saturday Night Live may have out done themselves on the nerdy quotient this weekend. Martin Freeman hosted SNL Saturday to promote the final chapter of The Hobbit, and in the spirit of the season, Freeman portrayed Bilbo Baggins in a mashup with the BBC version of The Office. Freeman initially portrayed Tim on the Ricky Gervais led show, and in this hilarious, inspired sketch, we get to see Bilbo selling paper over the phone after becoming a hero in his quest against the dragon Smaug. Watch the sketch below, and you tell me which is better: Bobby Moynihan’s cheeky David Brent/Gandalf hybrid or Taran Killam going full-on Gollum?
