    Oin and Gloin revealed

    July 11, 2011 by Ausir

    After the recent reveal of Nori, Dori and Ori, now it's time for two more of the thirteen dwarves that accompany Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit movies - John Callen as Oin and Peter Hambleton as Gloin.

    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.

    How do you like it? I think they're …

    Director Peter Jackson has just released the second installment of The Hobbit video blog, where Jackson and Andy Serkis (Gollum actor and now also second unit director) take us behind the scenes of the upcoming movies. In the video, we see many of the actors portraying the fan-beloved characters and go scouting for locations in the gorgeous New Zealand.

    Personally, I've always had a hard time distinguishing the dwarves in The Hobbit, but from the newly released photo and its official description, it looks like they've been given more unique personality traits in the upcoming The Hobbit movies.

    Our first dwarf photo shows (from left to right) Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori. Here's the description from The Hobbit official Facebook page:

    These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guarante…

    We still have a long way ahead of us before Peter Jackson's two-part adaptation of The Hobbit finds its way into theatres, but Entertainment Weekly has announced it will have an exclusive behind-the-scenes look, published tomorrow.

    The photo here is of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. Said Jackson to EW about it, "He fits the ears, and he's got some very nice feet. I think he's got the biggest hobbit feet we've had so far. They're a little bit hard to walk in, but he's managed to figure out the perfect hobbit gait.

    You can find a sneak peek of the sneak peek right here.

    After recent exciting cast annoucements, The Hollywood Reporter now reports that Losts Evangeline Lilly has joined the cast of the upcoming The Hobbit movies as a newly created character, Wood Elf Tauriel. Her name means "daughter of Mirkwood". Peter Jackson has stated that there won't be any romantic connection between her and Mirkwood prince Legolas, though.

    Another actor announced to have been cast in the production is Barry Humphries, who will portray the Great Goblin via motion capture similar to the one used by Andy Serkis as Gollum.

    What do you think about the new announcements? As someone who used to be quite a Tolkien purist, I'm not sure about the addition of more new characters. But I guess we'll have to wait and see!

    Deadline reports that Benedict Cumberbatch will voice the fearsome dragon Smaug in the upcoming The Hobbit films. Not only that, but he will also voice another character, who was only mentioned in the actual book. Don't look further if you want to avoid spoilers!

    According to the article, Cumberbatch will also be the voice of the mysterious Necromancer of Dol Guldur, whom Lord of the Rings fans know to actually be the Dark Lord Sauron. It's been mentioned a while ago that the movies will show us some of the events involving Gandalf that happened during The Hobbit but which were only mentioned in the books. Maybe there will be some surprises even for longtime fans?

    This won't be the first meeting of Cumberbatch and Bilbo Baggins actor Martin Freema…

    Im not too sure about this guys soo bear with me but ummm im not sure hu is more powerful gandalf in his grey form or Saruman coz it says that Gandalf is more wiser than Saruman and that the other 3 wizards wanted Gandalf to become the leader of the order of wizards but Saruman ended up becoming it and im just confused about how and why Gandalf didnt become the leader even tho the others thought it was best? and also Saruman being the white wizard or Saruman of many colours some how defeated the other three wizrads and gained there rods of power and also somehow gained the crowns of the nine kings too (idk if this made sense at all but umm the main question im asking is well hu is more powerful) gandalf or saruman???

    I personally have a lot of faves. To name a few, I have to say:

    1. Frodo volunteers to take the Ring to Mordor.

    2. The Fellowship on the Bridge. The movie makes it so much more epic!

    3. Sam faces off with Shelob. Go Sam!

    4. The Battle on the Pelennor Fields. Awesome battle!

    5. Frodo says goodbye at the Havens.

    6. Sam keeps his promise to never leave Frodo before they embark on the quest together.

    Things are really starting to heat up on the set of Peter Jackson's upcoming Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit! Filming started earlier this month and Ian McKellen is downright giddy to get back in his white robe as Gandalf!

    "It’s like old times," McKellen wrote on his blog. "Gandy’s clothes are hanging round my trailer and in steps Emma Harre, who dressed me last time, valiant, sporting, reliable and ready to put up once more with my early morning grumps and end-of-day sloth. We giggle as we remember the tricks of the layered costume, the hidden belts and braces. It’s all new, and looking it, and will till broken down. But it fits, even the new hat."

    "The false nose too looked not quite as we’d remembered," he continued. "That’s because…

    Hello there everyone!

    Just wanted to introduce myself:

    My name is Diogo and I come from Portugal...I'm pretty good with foreign languages especially english.

    Although outside the fond and love, Tolkien works are something that I really do like.

    I have Peter Jackson's movies trilogy and yes that's something I do love(can't wait for The Hobbit!). I've seen the movies alot of times and so I know them pretty well(I saw all those hours of the appentices too).

    Never read any of the books(only had knowledge of them a few months ago) although I do know well Tolkien's biography.

    I've been enjoying working in this wikia but it makes me sad knowing that many people that register on it just come here to make about 5 edits and then disappear for ever from he…

    Created several years ago. An apparently misinformed helper deleted it in 2008, and I didn't notice. I discovered the deletion when I found that the link from the previous tour didn't work. Now it's restored.

    Needs some updating to reflect the shifting emphasis of this wiki. Current activists can discuss that.

    If you need structural help (e.g. inserting new pages), ask me.
