Thanks Jan :)

The band look great so far, 5 down 8 to go. I trust you've seen Bilbo and Gandalf already? If not check out this months Empire. :) Or scour their website.

BTW, who's Hugh Griffith? That's not the old Antiques Roadshow guy is it? :oops:

:lol: Thanks for making me feel really old!

Hugh Emrys Griffith was one of the grand old English actors like Michael Hordern who was in just about every great brit film and TV series going in the 50's to the 80's. He was in Ben Hur as the owner of the chariot horses (Aldebaran, Altaïr, Antares and Rigel :lol: ) that Ben raced and got an oscar for that role and he was Albert Finney's potential dad-in-law in Tom Jones. One of his last roles was as the Vogon captain who chucked Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect off his ship after demolishing the Earth in H2G2 the classic TV series but he didn't look much like Oin in that, being green... :D

Don't think I have seen him then. Not seen Ben Hur all the way through, last time I tried my tape but out half way through. I have only seen the Hitchhikers film with Bilbo, not the series. :( Sorry for making you feel old...

Dean O'Gorman as Fili and Aidan (Being Human) Turner as Kili in "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"

Two of the youngest Dwarves, Fili and Kili have been born into the royal line of Durin and raised under the stern guardianship of their uncle, Thorin Oakensheild. Neither has ever travelled far, nor ever seen the fabled Dwarf City of Erebor. For both, the journey to the Lonely Mountain represents adventure and excitement. Skilled fighters, both brothers set off on their adventure armed with the invincible courage of youth, neither being able to imagine the fate which lies before them.

The site was playing up so a bit smaller than the others :D That's James Nesbitt in the middle! :shock: :lol:

Make a change for him not to be towering over the other cast members :twisted:

So many different styles so far! Only three to go: Dwalin Balin and Thorin, are they saving the most badass for last :wink: :D

This is an amazing display of hats and beards! :D

I always thought that Terry was poking fun at the Elvish bread from LOTR when he invented Dwarf bread. :lol:

Nope - they had their own variety that's all. :wink: Dwarf bread lasted as long as Lembas (the Elf bread made from the wheat brought over from the Undying Lands by the Naughty Noldor when they rebelled) but wasn't as nice - very, very hard in fact and so it was great to take travelling with you to encourage you to live off the land unless you were really desparate... :twisted:

I think in the Trilogy Gimli makes an aside (to Legolas or Aragorn) about it being hard as iron and useful for braining orcs :P Terry knows ME very well indeed :wink:
