Martin Freeman brought along his characters from "The Hobbit" and "The Office" while hosting "Saturday Night Live" in a skit called "The Office: Middle Earth," which was not to be missed.
Freeman, who was in the original British version of "The Office," played a prank-loving paper salesman version of Bilbo Baggins in the skit. "So, yeah the brave hobbit Bilbo Baggins now works at a paper company, selling paper reams over the phone," Freeman's Baggins said. "And I drive a Jetta."
But it was Taran Killam's Gollum that stole the sketch, taking on the Dwight Schrute/Gareth Keenan role in the company, getting pranked by Freeman's character, who jello'd Gollum's One Ring.
The "Sherlock" star opened the show with a monologue joined by guests Maggie Smith (played by Kate McKinnon) and Alan Richman (played by Killam). Because, you know, all British actors are friends.
The show also tackled the holidays, with a mock-promo for St. Joseph's Church's "Christmas Mass Spectator" featuring Kate McKinnon as Linda Tayhoe, the organist who takes, "20 minutes to arrange her sheet music and still starts on the wrong chord."
Amy Adams will host the show next week, Dec. 20, with musical guest One Direction.
