Tennant, McAvoy, Radcliffe Up For “Hobbit”?

British thesps Daniel Radcliffe (“Harry Potter”), David Tennant (TV’s “Doctor Who”) and James McAvoy (“Atonement,” “Wanted”) are the three names currently rumored to be playing Bilbo Baggins in Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming “The Hobbit” movies.

According to the Hero Complex blog at The Los Angeles Times, it’s expected that the announcement of who will play Bilbo will be made sometime during Comic-Con next week.

Adding fuel to the fire is that David Tennant is making his first appearance at the convention promoting the final specials of his stint as “Doctor Who” which he completed filming earlier this year.

McAvoy’s name has been rumored for the role for well over a year, while Radcliffe’s link seems dubious though is not unexpected.
