Martin Freeman Combines 'The Office' And 'The Hobbit' On 'SNL'

"Hobbit" star Martin Freeman hosted 'Saturday Night Live" this weekend, but Bilbo Baggins wasn't the only character the show put to good use. In sketch "The Office: Middle Earth," Freeman combined what are arguably his two fan-favorite projects: "The Hobbit" and "The Office." The premise is simple: Bilbo Baggins returns from his questing life to sell reams at a paper company. His workplace role is much like that of Freeman's "Office" character Tim: he's got a workplace rival -- Gollum -- who he pranks by sticking the ring in a mound of jello, and a boss detached from reality -- Gandalf -- who makes inappropriate sexual jokes. His boss's favorite nickname for him? Dildo Baggins.

It's a pitch-perfect parody -- and in case you've been wondering, Bilbo Baggins now drives a Jetta.
