Sure, it ain't Jackson, but it's the next best thing. Now all we need is Ian McKellen, Andy Serkis, Hugo Weaving and Ian Holm if he's up for it. If Holm declines to play Bilbo (which is possible...the dude's pushing 80), I'll say what I said before: James McAvoy would be an awesome Bilbo.
He would be awesome, if not perhaps a little young for the role - let's not forget (rather - let's the director not forget) that Bilbo was already considered middle aged as far as Hobbits go when the story starts.
