Hobbits are so early 2000’s, Bring on the Dwarves!

After taking a look at the Dwarves in the upcoming ‘The Hobbit’. I’m glad that the only Hobbits will be Bilbo Baggins. Really, who needs a bunch of furry footed slackers who have to learn how to fight all of a sudden? Bring on the bearded glory of the dwarves and their batshit crazy willingness to fight. I think in a way, I might be more excited for The Hobbit, than I was for Lord of the Rings.


This picture above here is a shot of Gimli’s kin. Oin, played by John Cullen, and then Gimil’s dad, Gloin, played by Peter Hambleton. They both look just as bad ass as the dwarf that we all fell in love with during the Lord of the Rings, especially Gloin.


In this other picture you’ll see from left to right, we get our first glimpse of Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, and Mark Hadlow as dwarf brothers, Nori, Ori, and Dori. Who come with an official description:

These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other.

Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins.

Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal.

Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.
