‘The Hobbit’ Heads to ‘The Office’ on ‘SNL’

Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins Goes to Work at The Office

When Martin Freeman hosted the December 13, 2014 episode of NBC’s Saturday Night Live one of the best skits of the night was a The Hobbit/The Office mash-up that found Bilbo Baggins, Gollum, Gandalf, Legolas, and even Orcs working at the paper company. Gandalf, of course, is the boss who’s dubbed himself Lord of the Reams while Bilbo torments his fellow paper salesman Gollum (played by Taran Killam, who nails it) by hiding The One Ring in Jello.

And a bit of trivia for those who weren’t into the original British version of The Office: Martin Freeman played salesman Tim Canterbury in the BBC comedy series.
