Yesterday, the world caught a glimpse of the dwarves — Nori, Ori, and Dori — from director Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” Today, we get our first look at at distant cousins Oin and Gloin.
The photo shows John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin.
“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” hits theaters next year on December 14, 2012 with its second half, “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” to be released a year later on December 13, 2013.
Here’s the official description of the image:
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.
