Guillermo del Toro, via the MTV Movies Blog:

“The most salient virtue of Bilbo is a very relatable, basic decency and honesty – the fact that here’s a guy who’s going to do the right thing,” Del Toro said of the titular character in the works of J.R.R. Tolkien. “Bilbo is a good-hearted man, and the honesty of Bilbo is in direct contrast to the greed of Smaug, which looms large in the entire narrative, but also in the newly acquired greed and pride of Thorin, who becomes intoxicated with power and gold.”

Actually, Bilbo is the titular character of The Hobbit. Sauron is the titular character of The Lord of the Rings. And the titular character of The Silmarillion is a shiny rock.
