Freeman Might Still Play Bilbo

Yesterday it was reported that Martin Freeman had to turn down the starring role of Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit films due to his commitment to the second season of the excellent BBC's TV series Sherlock. According to PopWatch, it seems that he could still play the role as MGM and New Line have proposed a schedule that could allow the actor to do both projects. Currently the film has penciled in November or December as production start dates around the time that many think MGM might just be able to settle its financial issues. If there is a delay (which is likely), I don't know how that will impact any deal they might have with the actor.
