The Hobbit - Who will be Bilbo? Dr Who, Harry Potter or Mr Tumnus?

Rumour has it that the name of the lead star in Guillermo del Toro's The Hobbit will be announced next week at Comic-Con International.

Names recently mentioned in the running are David Tennant (Dr Who), Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) and James McAvoy (Wanted, The Last King of Scotland). Sadly Ian Holm who played Bilbo in The Lord of The Rings is not in the running.

I don't really see any of the trio being Bilbo, they're all a little skinny and heading down the Elijah Wood as Frodo look.

However, if I had to pick I would like to see Tennant. To go from the Doctor to The Hobbit would be amazing.

This also seems like it could be the most likely if you look at what is happening at this years Comic Con.

David Tennant is making his very first trip to the San Diego expo to promote Doctor Who, a television series that he will soon be leaving behind. Peter Jackson, the producer of the two-film "Hobbit" series due out in 2011 is also meant to be appearing at the Comic Con. Coincedence?
