Default Re: Bryan Singer Directing X-Men: Days of Future Past - Part 1

Martin Freeman is widely regarded as one of the best natural actors, that is, he's MEANT to act like himself. There's an entire school of acting around it, to play an engaging, relatable everyman character. That doesn't mean he's LESS talented than someone like Cate Blanchett, who plays very different characters, it's just his style of acting.

The fact that he may have sounded or looked similar to how he did in Sherlock (or anything else) should have absolutely no bearing at all on whether or not he is good at a different role.

I thought he was perfect for Bilbo as did a great many other people. But to say he 'wasn't doing much acting' is completely ignorant of the craft altogether.
