Bilbo Braves the Treacherous Waters of Office Politics in New SNL Skit: WATCH

Snl

Worlds collided on last night's SNL as the show mashed together two of Martin Freeman's most memorable on-screen roles - Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit and Tim Canterbury from the UK version of The Office.

Because after you've gone "there and back again" to save Middle Earth, there really isn't much left to do besides go work at a paper company run by a wizard who always seems to be making inappropriate sexual or racist jokes.

Watch, AFTER THE JUMP...

Actor Ian McKellen Surprises Audience At Hobbit Premiere: VIDEO

Gandalf

Fans of Peter Jackson and J.R.R. Tolkien got a surprise when they attended a Friday the 13th midnight showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug at New York City's AMC Lincoln Square—Gandalf the Grey himself (Ian McKellen) appeared for a few opening remarks.

The crowd broke into applause and gave the openly gay British actor a standing ovation as he commented on the film. McKellen said, "I think the dragon goes on a bit long, but my God he looks amazing." If you've seen the film, you know he's right.

He also says, "I just wanted to let you know that when we were doing Lord of the Rings all those years ago at the beginning of the century, we didn't really know whether anybody was going to want to come and see them. And it happened that you and others enjoyed them. So when we went back to do the pickups for part two and part three of Lord of the Rings, it was as if we were making these films for people who really cared."

McKellen is currently playing in a Broadway production of Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot and in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land. He's also been seen hanging around with his BFF and Godot co-star Sir Patrick Stewart outside The Stonewall Inn.
