And then there were none, and it looks like they saved the best for last. After a slow tease over the last few weeks via several media outlets, The One Ring has revealed British actor Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Though that sounds more like the name of a Swedish club DJ, Oakenshield is actually the bad-ass leader of the dwarves who join Bilbo on his quest to kill the shit out of the dragon Smaug. You can next see Armitage in Captain America, where he presumably won’t look like Travolta’s character from Battlefield: Earth.

Congratulations all. We made it. This should be the final dwarf reveal at least until Ian McShane has his Snow White and the Huntsman make-up test.

‘The Hobbit’ Cast Without Makeup Is Just A Sausage Party http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hobbit-cast-without-makeup-is-just-a-sausage-party/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-hobbit-cast-without-makeup-is-just-a-sausage-party/#comments Fri, 11 Feb 2011 02:31:41 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=26316 A nice press conference photo before they spend every day of next year wearing heavy robes, caked in pounds of make-up, sweat and their own tears.

The photo below is the first cast picture for Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit in New Zealand, but don’t be alarmed. Despite MGM‘s recent money troubles, Jackson isn’t filming some kind of barebones, “experimental,” sweded version. Rather, this is just a nice press conference photo before they spend every day of next year wearing heavy robes, caked in pounds of make-up, sweat and their own tears.

Here we see Martin Freeman (BBC’s The Office) who’ll play “Bilbo Baggins,” one of the funniest character names ever. Unfortunately, a lot of the big names are missing from this photo, like Ian McKellen or Cate Blanchett, but we do see a lot of the guys playing his back-up dwarves, like Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Mark Hadlow as Dori, and Ken Stott as Dwarf Lord Balin. Boy, you know that dwarf is straight Balin, amiright?

The Hobbit journeys epically to theaters December 2012 & 2013. (FirstShowing)
