'The Hobbit' star Martin Freeman has defended the decision to turn the movie into a trilogy.

Speaking to BBC Newsbeat, the actor first joked about the film becoming a franchise.

"I think its massively greedy and I'm ashamed to be on it," he laughed.

After hitting back with his signature sense of humour, he added: "No, I trust that it's an absolutely artistic decision."

Although having mixed reviews from critics, the film is likely to be a box office smash, as it is directed by 'Lord of The Rings' director Peter Jackson.

Many now believe that Martin will have Hollywood execs calling. Although the actor doesn't seem so confident.

He said: "I hope people like the film and like what I do in it. I'm in the film, so I suppose they will notice that I'm it; so it will be down to them if they dig it. It will be nice if they do."

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' was released yesterday.
