Another beloved actor signs off set. Martin Freeman finished his last shot as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug on Thursday night, July 11, and per usual, director Peter Jackson shared that moment (click HERE to view another pic) with fans. "The end of an incredible two and a half years. I cannot imagine anyone else in this role - a character that Martin has nurtured and crafted with love and great skill," Jackson wrote. "We have said goodbye to our elves, humans, wizards and now the hobbit. ...These next two movies are going to be pretty great!"
