More Dwarves from The Hobbit
Posted 07.08.11 by Chris
Only in Middle-Earth can Dwarves be a big deal. Just a day after Peter Jackson gave us a first look at three Dwarf brothers from his upcoming The Hobbit prequels, we get a first look at two more dwarves who accompany a young Bilbo Baggins on an epic adventure. Again Jackson first posted the photos on his Facebook page.
In the new still, we get a look at Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton).
Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Gloin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Gloin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.
Jackson co-wrote The Hobbit movies with Guillermo del Toro, Fran Walsh, and Philippa Boyens.
