Hi, I love your tumblr. I've only seen Martin on Sherlock. What do you recommend me to watch next?
First off, thanks so much for liking my blog! I’m obviously a huge Martin fan, so it means a lot when people say they enjoy it.
Now for what to watch next, well… he has quite the filmography, but I can give a few recs.
Martin’s breakout role was in the Office playing Tim Canterbury. It’s a really funny show and Martin is great in it. It’s defiantly worth a watch!
Now, Martin’s second best known role (or perhaps best known, depending on who your asking) is Bilbo Baggins in the Hobbit. Say what you want about the movies (I happen to love them) Martin’s performance is always praised. He put so much depth into his character. It’s such a great performance over three films. Check them out :)
One of Martin’s more recent roles that I enjoyed was Phil Rask in Startup. I did not love the show as much, but his acting was top notch, and he will be appearing in the second season, so it’ worth a watch (did i mention he was gorgeous in it?)
Another one of my favourite roles of his was as Lester Nygaard in Fargo. I admit i was a bit skeptical of the show, but it totally blew me away. Martin was amazing as one of the leads, and he really got to play a different character than we are used to him playing. It was really great to see that.
If you’re interested in seeing a sexy, gorgeous, Scottish Martin Freeman, check out Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. I enjoyed the movie a lot more than i thought i would, and he is to die for in it (freebeard love) :)
A lot of these movies are more recent roles (except for The Office) but a lot of his older work is great as well. He is really great in the movie Nightwatching (even though I did not like the film overall)
Love Actually is a classic (although he is not in the movie a whole lot) The movie is amazing regardless of how much he is in it :) (also can’t find a great gif right now)
If you want an adorable Martin film, check out The Nativity. Its a guilty pleasure… its a kids christmas movie but i love it. (my computer sucks so so gif lol)
Anyway, those are some of my favourite, he really is a talented and versatile actor, and I hope you enjoy watching some of these performances :)
