Meet Oin and Gloin. They’re the latest pair of dwarves from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit to make their way onto the web. Yahoo premiered the image and have a bigger version.
Here’s the official introduction to these guys:
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.
Ah, semi-irrelevant backstory. Fanboy bait and the stuff Tolkienheads are stuffed with.
Oin is played John Callen by and Gloin is played by Peter Hambleton.
I guess we’ll have met all thirteen by this time next week.
