Personal Quote:

I think what 'The Hobbit' and Middle-earth deal in are quite universal and timeless themes of honor and love and friendship... so they're things that do resonate with people. See more »

Trivia:

One episode of Sherlock (2010) was based on "The Hound of the Baskervilles." A previous film adaptation of the story, The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959) featured André Morell as Dr. Watson. It also featured John Le Mesurier, who preceded him in the role of Bilbo. In another Tolkien connection, Morell subsequently played Elrond in The Lord of the Rings (1978). See more »
