Sherlock Holmes and the Case of the Awesome Voice Role


?Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has been cast as the voice of the dragon Smaug in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies. This means he’ll be reuniting with his Sherlock co-star Martin Freeman, who plays Bilbo. Really, that’s all the news here. Cumberbatch has an excellent voice, but it’s not like it’s impossibly unique or anything. But Sherlock is just so damned awesome I’m actually excited that The Hobbit movies have become more Sherlock-y now. Seriously.

Okay, now I’m imagining a series where Bilbo and Smaug solve crimes together in Middle-Earth, and it’s the best thing ever. I think I need to take a cold shower or something. Back in a bit.
