Following Thursday’s first look at brothers Nori, Ori and Dori from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Yahoo! Movies this morning unveils two more of Thorin Oakenshield’s fabled Company of Dwarves: Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton).
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.
The two-movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved fantasy novel features an ensemble cast led by Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf the Grey. It also stars Richard Armitage, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, Aidan Turner, Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Barry Humphries, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood and Andy Serkis.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on Dec. 14, 2012, and The Hobbit: There and Back Again on Dec. 13, 2013. The new issue of Empire is in stores on Thursday.
