One them made the comment he didn't have a beard because he was young, so that seems like what they are going with in the film, his beard hasn't all come in yet, which was also one of the ideas tossed about here. I dare say he will get a fair bit of teasing about it and he looks like a young dwarf to me.
Never had a doubt in my mind that RA would make a great Thorin and seeing him in action is even more convincing than the still photo. :)
I just about died when Saruman came on! That was fantastic. And I loved "Daddy" from John Rhys Davies. :)
And for those theorizing that it's because he has to cut it off because of the spiders' webs, he's clearly already beardless in the Bag End scenes. He does at least have a decent-looking dwarf nose, but he still looks like a dwelf!
