Dick Heads: The Hobbit

Richard Armitage as Thorin the Dwarf in The Hobbit

It’s been nearly a year since our last Dick Head, but since it’s Richard Armitage’s birthday today, what could be a more appropriate way to celebrate than this new picture of our Dick as Thorin the inappropriately tall Dwarf, in the forthcoming The Hobbit?

Feel free to compose poems and haikus as you see fit – extra bonus points if they’re about gold and you can sing them.

Got a picture of Richard Armitage’s head, preferably wearing a hat? Then leave a link to it below and if it’s judged suitable, it will appear in the “Dick Heads” gallery.




  • He's about the same height at John Rhys 'Gimli' Davies…

  • He is. Both are inappropriately tall for dwarves (although The Almighty Johnsons has something to say on that subject.)
    And your comment was in prose, not verse, BTW, so is ineligible for any prizes.

    Unforgivably tall dwarf
    Still – hot dwarves are wins!
