Watch: 'Saturday Night Live' Combines 'Hobbit' and 'The Office' For Martin Freeman Orgy

Saturday Night Live” has had some decent hosts this year, but Martin Freeman’s acting talents, gung-ho comedy sensibility and iconic backlog of characters might make him this year’s very best. And it all came together in the filmed sketch “The Office: Middle Earth,” which showcases life at an everyday Tolkein-esque office building. 

It’s legitimately eerie to hear Freeman simultaneously play two of his most notable roles, though there’s a lot more Tim than Bilbo in this sketch, as it perfectly nails the tone of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant’s genre-defining mockumentary. If your only knowledge of “The Office” is the American version, trust us — NAILED IT. (Bobby Moynihan as a David Brent/Gandalf hybrid is also spot on.)
