It is, almost definitely, Dwalin [In reply to] Can't Post

If you watch the thirteen minute television special, there's a close up of the Dwarf with the mowhawk; look at his axe.

Clip: he comes up at about 5:08 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LOVo8NzHz4
Heavy, heavy spoilers within.

I am pleased to see [In reply to] Can't Post

Radagast as a Wizard! I was worried that he would just be a petty bird-tamer, kind of silly. Those scenes in Dol Guldur are NOT silly.

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."

No *spoilers for those not watching the video* [In reply to] Can't Post

If I saw that big pale orc coming after me in a dark alley I'd soil myself. Plain is not a word that comes immediately to mind. Wink

Arthur: What manner of man are you that can summon up fire without flint or tinder?
Tim: I... am an enchanter.
Arthur: By what name are you known?
Tim: There are some who call me... 'Tim'...?
Arthur: ...greetings, Tim the Enchanter.

Thanks for the links! These are great except... [In reply to] Can't Post

... wow blink and you miss something. Which is par for the course with these TV spots, I know. Unimpressed

Orc = Azog's bodyguard? [In reply to] Can't Post

In the TV special we see another, very similar-looking Orc fighting in the background. Might these just be Azog's guards?

I think you're right ! [In reply to] Can't Post

They're described as special orcs in the book.
And in the appendice, it is said that azog have an iron helmet or something, so I think he will be heavy armored, maybe with dwaves heads as decoration justifying the 13+ rate ?
