Everyone's Talking: Stars of 'The Hobbit' on TV talk shows
Everyone’s talking on daytime TV and this time they were talking with a middle-earth accent about "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
The journey has led star Martin Freeman and others to TV talk shows beginning with Elijah Wood, who returns as Frodo in the movie. He explained the gravity of his journey on "Live with Kelly and Michael."
“I had closed that chapter 9 years ago thinking I would never return to middle earth,” Wood said. “It's a real place, man!”
Ian McKellen also was on Kelly and Michael, where he spoke from the heart. When they asked him what he thought when they asked him to come back, he responded with: “I thought, how much are you going to pay me to come back?”
Ian was also on "The Colbert Report," where he made a statement about two of his most famous characters. It was a statement that will forever pit "X-Men" enthusiasts against "Lord of the Rings" fans.
“Gandalf is more powerful than Magneto. The old guy will do it every time. He's 7,000 years old, so he knows it all,” McKellen said.
Finally, star Martin Freeman went on "Late Show with David Letterman," where it turned out the talk show legend didn't really do much interview prep work.
He asked Freeman if fans will see him in "The Hobbit." Freeman took it in stride and said, “I hope so.”
Love it or Hobbit, it's got everyone talking!
