Benedict Cumberbatch Has A Role In The Hobbit

Martin Freeman has slipped up backstage at the BAFTA TV awards and revealed to the amassed press that his Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch has joined the cast of The Hobbit. But as who? I’ll wager he’s an elf. He certainly looks like one.

Freeman is currently taking time off from his role as Bilbo to get three Sherlock episodes in the bag for screening in the late summer. He’ll then return to New Zealand to see out the remainder of the epic Hobbit shoot.

The TV broadcast of the show has just kicked off on BBC1. I’ll be watching to see if there’s any on-camera fall out or comment.
