oingloin First Image Of The Dwarves Oin & Gloin In Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit’

Following yesterdays look at Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori, Yahoo have today provided us with our first peak at John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin in Peter Jackson’s upcoming two-part “The Hobbit” feature film adaptation. Both films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before J.R.R. Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the fantastic  blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ has been pencilled in for a December 14th, 2012 release date. ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ will hit cinemas December 13th, 2013. Check out the character description provided for the duo below.

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.
