Do Hobbits have facial hair.??? Can't Post

I noticed in the movie, Bilbo's great uncle Bullroarer Took, has mutton chops but i thought that Hobbits had no facial hair.Wink

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.

They don't tend to, no [In reply to] Can't Post

But Bullroarer was no ordinary hobbit, mind you. He was 5+ feet, could rise a horse, etc. I don't really see that as facial hair, more like his hair on his head has just grown longer and he put some of it to the sides.

Some Stoors had facial hair [In reply to] Can't Post

But Bullroarer (who looks a little like del Toro) was a harfoot. I guess it's not impossible. Maybe he had some men genes? Shocked

I think Dan Hennah is Old Took [In reply to] Can't Post

I am pretty sure I saw somewhere that he plays Old Took in the baby Bilbo meets Gandalf scene ... did I imagine it, or can anyone else confirm it?
