More HOBBIT Dwarfs – Bombur, Bofur And Bifur

Haven’t had enough news about cinematic dwarfs today? How about the latest picture (via IGN) of some of the dwarfs to be seen in Peter Jackson’s adaption of The Hobbit?

Today we see Stephen Hunter as Bombur, James Nesbitt as Bofur and William Kircher as Bifur. And here’s the studio’s description of the three –

While most of the Company of Thorin Oakensheild is related to the royal and noble line of Durin, Bofur, his brother Bombur and their cousin Bifur most definitely are … not. Born and bred in the West, descendants of coal miners and iron workers, they have joined the Quest for the Lonely Mountain partly to seek their fortune and partly because they were told the beer was free.

So the count stands now at ten of the thirteen dwarfs whom Bilb Baggins (Martin Freeman) joins for an adventure across Middle Earth. That just leaves us waiting to see Dwalin, Balin and their leader Thorin Oakenshield but I’m reasonably sure we’ll be seeing them before the weekend.
