Ian Holm Joins 'The Hobbit' And 'The Hunger Games' Casts Katniss' Mom In Today's Dailies

Gollum GollumHere's the best news you've heard all day: Ian Holm will be back for "The Hobbit."

We literally have no other information other than that, but Peter Jackson took to his Facebook to clarify that the voice we heard at the end of his recent video blog was Martin Freeman's, not Holm's from the previous "Lord of the Rings" narration. That being said, Jackson dropped a bomb on us by stating that "Ian will be returning as the older Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit." Ahh, the wonders of Facebook.

The rest of today's news is after the jump, including the newest boss in town on "The Office," an extended trailer of "Green Lantern" and the newest "Hunger Games" casting announcement.
