Hot Dwarves (Who knew?)

I was 14 years old the first time I read THE HOBBIT. In my mind, dwarves were short, stocky, hairy, full of grumbles, sometimes funny, and indisputably unattractive.

The idea of a dwarf being "hot" wasn't ludicrous, it simply could not exist in my tiny little brain.

Had someone tried to put the idea there, my head would have probably popped off.
When Peter Jackson put THE LORD OF THE RINGS on film, there, on the screen, were the dwarves of my childhood. They were short, stocky, hairy, funny and still pretty unattractive. Though, not in a bad way, they were dwarves, they couldn't help it.
Now it is 2012, and THE HOBBIT is coming to a theatre near you next Christmas. As you may already know, THE HOBBIT is filled to the brim with dwarves.

Most of the travelling party is made up of what I consider common, ordinary, deep-in-the-earth dwarves.

They come in various shapes and sizes, but they are all stocky and hairy.
However, this time, they are also distinct. Not cookie-cutter dwarves, but individuals with personalities.

Their faces, if not exactly attractive, are interesting and pleasing.

Good thing, too, since THE HOBBIT will be shown in two parts--two full length (probably over 2 hours each) movies.
That's a lot of screen time void of eye candy.

Not to worry.

Luckily there are three dwarves, royalty as it were, who do not fit the preconceived dwarven mold.

If you've stayed with me this far, you are in for a real treat.

Warning: Hot dwarves ahead.
Thorin Oakenshield is a dwarf king in exile. 

With him, travel his two nephews, Kili and Fili.

Suddenly the term "hot dwarves" makes complete sense.

Okay, so maybe the fact that I'm not 14 anymore means I think beards are sexy.

(At 14 I thought beards were gross.)
Yes, there will be wood elves and high elves and humans and hobbits in the film.

All with faces prettier than an average dwarf.

But I'm sticking by my assessment.

It's a new age, and some of the dwarves are definitely HOT.

Who knew?
