Why should Dori, Nori, and Ori get all the…glory? They had their day in the sun yesterday with the release of this image. Before that, Bilbo got his glamour shots. Now, it’s time for Oin and Gloin to shoin. (I’m so very sorry.) With The Hobbit casting complete, Peter Jackson is starting to roll out images of its more diminutive characters.
So who, exactly are Oin and Gloin? You’re going to have to read the book to find out.
Just kidding. This is what Yahoo said about them:
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.
They do look rather doughty, don’t they? Doughty as shit, if you ask me. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go look up “doughty.”
Between these guys and Peter Dinklage in Game of Thrones, I’m beginning to feel kind of tall and uncool.
