A concern

If the youngest dwarves are the least "calcified" and therefore the least encumbered by facial prosthetics, then what of Balin?

He is one of the oldest dwarves and is being played by one of the older actors. Balin is a significant character, deeply entwined in many of the emotional threads of the story and the film franchise. His portrayal and his interaction with Bilbo and Thorin are extremely important.

I long thought if they get Balin right, then the battle is half won for me.

But am I to now assume Ken Stott is going to have to accomplish all of this while suffering deep beneath "Pizza the Hutt" prosthetics?
