When fandoms collide...  
OK - I was amused mid-week to find out that Clem Tibber, who played Little John's son in Robin Hood, also played William Shakespeare's son Hamnet in A Waste of Shame when Billy was being played by Rupert "D.I. Lestrade" Graves. (But then again given the incestuous nature of BBC Drama casting just about everybody has been in everything with everybody else at some point!)

But this morning's news...

Martin "John Watson" Freeman is confirmed as playing Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit - no wait - hold the squee - it gets better.

Richard Armitage is playing Thorin Oakenshield! Richard Bloody Armitage!!!

And Aidan Turner from Being Human is playing Kili!!

If the rumours about David Tennant also getting a part are confirmed then my head may very well explode...

I read awhile back that Clive Standen was also attached to the project... which may very well have changed, how casting things do, but that would add to the awesome, imo! (I may not have liked where S4 was headed, but I liked Clive VERY much. :D)

Oh, that would be great - he deserves to be much higher profile.
