Another Middle-Earth First Look: 'The Hobbit' Dwarves Gloin & Oin
Never toss a dwarf! We've got another awesome photo from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (and There And Back Again) to feature this morning, following that epic first look just yesterday at dwarves Dori, Nori and Ori. This time we get to meet Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton). Gloin is the father of Gimli, the dwarf we all came to love in Lord of the Rings, that John Rhys-Davies perfectly portrayed. Together, with all of the dwarves, they accompany Bilbo on the Quest of Erebor where they encounter Smaug and Gollum. Check out the photo below via Collider and stay tuned for plenty more.
We expect to see plenty more first look photos (at least for all the dwarves), but for now here's Gloin & Oin!
In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit… The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson in two separate parts, is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The Hobbit films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The first part of The Hobbit hits theaters December 2012.
