More Hobbit Dwarves – And Then There Were Five

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.
