Daniel Radcliffe says thanks, but no thanks to the role of Bilbo Baggins

Ten years of wizarding is apparently going to be QUITE enough for Daniel Radcliffe, thank you very much!

And really, can you blame him? In the LA Times, Daniel answers the question of whether or not he will be in Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit”:

“I’d have to say, ‘Thanks but no thanks,’ not that anyone has asked me,” the 20-year-old actor told me last week in England. “Honestly, I don’t think they would want me anyway, it’s just too close. Whatever I do next, I don’t think there will be any wizards in it!”

Daniel’s personal choice for the role? James McAvoy, one of my favorite actors, who played Mr. Tumnus in “Chronicles of Narnia” and also was a complete badass in “Wanted” with Angelina Jolie. Who would you pick for the role of Bilbo?
