On last night’s episode of Saturday Night Live, host Martin Freeman reprised two of his most ironic roles — Tim Canterbury on the BBC version of The Office, and Bilbo Baggins from The Hobbit films — for “The Office: Middle Earth.”
It begins with Bilbo Baggins speaking directly to the camera, informing the interviewers what he’s been up to.
“I went on a quest, saved Middle Earth,” he said, “became a bit of a hero, then did the noble thing and turned down loads of treasure. So, the brave Bilbo Baggins now works at a paper company. And I drive a Jetta, now.”
After that brief update as to his post-Battle of the Five Armies life, the skit recapitulated some of the greatest moments from the BBC version of The Office — many of which also appeared in the American adaptation — including the infamous staple-in-jello prank and the inappropriately racist penis jokes.
