Martin Freeman has said that he wants director Peter Jackson to write a sex scene into The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.
The actor, who will play the lead role of Bilbo Baggins in the film, joked to Total Film that he wanted the character's romantic deeds to be detailed in the script.
Speaking about Baggins, he said:
I think he's had sex. I'm not sure. I'm trying to convince Peter to write that scene in...
Previously, Freeman said he didn't feel under any pressure playing the lead role in the film, stating: "It's Bilbo's journey, but I didn't write it. I'm not directing it. It's not my film, it's Peter's film."
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is released on December 14, 2012, and recently celebrated its one-year countdown to release. It co-stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Freeman's co-star on Sherlock, as well as Stephen Fry, James Nesbitt, Aidan Turner and Sylvester McCoy.
Reprising their roles from the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, meanwhile, are Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Elijah Wood.
