Richard Armitage as Thorin – new pic

Here’s what we’re going ga-ga over today on Facebook! A new picture (from Entertainment Weekly, I believe) of Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit.

Hawt dang. Like a friend of mine commented:

I really didn’t think he was going to be hot as a Tolkien-dwarf but omg, he is hotness no matter what he looks like ♥

I concur! And at the same time note that he seems to be sporting his very own beard and not that fake fuzz we’ve seen previously. A little over five months to go now! 😀

  1. I can’t believe how close we’re getting to the release of The Hobbit! When I pulled my Entertainment Weekly with its Hobbit cover out of the mailbox last week I squealed! Love the picture. 🙂

  2. OMG! When I heard that Armitage was going to play a dwarf, I thought “jeez, what a waste of a handsome man.” I imagined dwarves like the ones in Walt Disney movies when I read The Hobbit, nothing like this. Wow.

    1. I think that was more what Tolkien had in mind as well. Fortunately, Peter Jackson is more in tune with the audience. 😉
