Another pic from Peter Jackson’s “The Hobbit Part 1: An Unexpected Journey”, featuring John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin. In case you missed it, three previous dwarfs got their due yesterday. You can check them out here. “The Hobbit Part 1” goes trekkin’ in 2012.
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.
