Watch Eddie Redmayne Reenact His Failed ‘Bilbo Baggins’ Audition

Eddie Redmayne

Eddie Redmayne was recently on ‘The Graham Norton Show,’ and during the show he revealed that he auditioned for the role as Bilbo Baggins for Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’ films. Let’s just say it didn’t go so well. lol Check out the hilarious video below!  

“I went to this audition, and I’d been really rigorous about it, and didn’t want to just do my usual boring thing. So I went on YouTube and I found Ian Holm, who’d played it in The Lord of the Rings, and I tried to copy his character. I arrived there, and the casting director put on the camcorder, and I started reading the scene. I thought I was being brave, and before the word Baggins had come out of my mouth she said ‘No, no, no, no. Own voice. Own voice.’ I never got a call back.”

Official Synopsis:

From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

“The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.
