Now this is cool: The Hobbit cast before and after prosthetics Can't Post

Drag the slider across each photo to see the actor then the character:

:D

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Neat! [In reply to] Can't Post

And fun as well! Gives me something more to do while I'm waiting--along with listening to endless music clips, watching trailers and vlogs, and ranting on the forum. James Nesbitt/Bofur is still my favorite :) (Except for Kili...and Ori...)

Frito groaned. "I wish I had never been born," he said.
"Do not say that, dear Frito," cried Orlon. "It was a happy minute for us all when you were born."

Maybe it's Groin?? Does he play his own father, perhaps?

Why it's not Glóin [In reply to] Can't Post

The unknown dwarf in the makeup chair: http://media.nzherald.co.nz/...phics/195/Peter2.jpg

Glóin:
http://images4.wikia.nocookie.net/...peterhambleton-p.jpg

Glóin's moustache is longer and thicker, and his skin different - especially around the scars over his left eye.

It could be from some kind of flashback (although not a flash forward, because of the scars...) sequence, but since it doesn't really look like Peter Hambleton, that isn't very likely either... probably another dwarf.

Nope [In reply to] Can't Post

They don't put on the accessories afterwards - the beard and hair is already prepared the way it's being filmed =)

It could have been before the barrels sequence, but that isn't really probable, since it doesn't look much like Peter Hambleton, and the dwarf doesn't have Glóin's scar above the left eye.

Balin/Ken Stott. looks the most transitioned. [In reply to] Can't Post

Cool

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

I suspect it's an early make-up test for Gloin... [In reply to] Can't Post

Very similar nose/beard/hair. Though, it doesn't really look like Peter Hambleton under there, does it...?

http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_maic9y4d2z1ro96rao4_r1_400.jpg

The paneled ceiling behind him, which is decidedly NOT a design to be found in ME, gives away that this is a BTS shot...he's wearing something which looks like it COULD be chain-mail, but the ceiling makes it more likely that this a smock/apron used to cover the actor during prosthetic application.

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Where would they have got the picture from though? [In reply to] Can't Post

They (the website) are not official or anything? Warner must have given them the pictures. I'm hoping that's it's another Dwarf! They've re-cast Kili without telling us!Laugh
