For those of you who cannot read the caption, this is Gloin, the brother of Oin. He is also the father of Gimli, for those of you who have not seen The Lord of the Rings or read its marvelous pages. Gimli is certainly introduced as, "Gimli, son of Gloin," often enough!
Now, Peter Jackson seems to have certainly made an effort to differentiate between his dwarves in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. However, there does remain a certain family resemblance between Thorin and Kili, for instance, but especially between Gloin and Gimli. Which is very appropriate. We can only imagine that Oin was a redhead too, when he was younger.
Here is Gimli for comparison:
Now, I did have a picture of Gimli that is perhaps better for comparison, but I thought this one was funnier (I have dubbed it the "Gimli Oops" picture), so it is the one that shall grace this blog.
And as you all should know, I won't be posting a Hobbit Picture of the Day tomorrow. However, I shall return on Monday. And Monday's picture shall be an especially good one. *smirks*
In Pace Christi,
