Tobey Maguire to enter The Shire?

Reports are popping up everywhere that Tobey Maguire is being eyed by Peter Jackson and Co as a potential candidate for Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming movie adaptation of The Hobbit. At first I didn't know what to think, but honestly, I think he could do good in this role. People often have poor memories of Tobey Maguire due to the Spiderman movies, while I myself am a huge Spiderman fan I defiantly blame the movies on the poor script and directing more than the actors themselves(with the exception of Topher Grace as Eddie Brock, he just straight up sucked) Right now all this is just talk as the production team is still in the casting phase. I am siked to see how they put this movie together and how they handle the pressure of living up to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If anyone can do it, it's Peter.
