Okay, the text on the site may help us a little bit here:
Jed Brophy as Nori, Adam Brown as Ori and Mark Hadlow as Dori in Warner Bros. Pictures’ The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey - 2012
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure hes not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that its guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.
[Image description: Another publicity shot with a grey “marble” background. So… okay. On the far right, we’ve got Dori, who has some badass white braidy-dwarfy hair and a truly exceptional mustache. You’ve got your general red and grey/black leather and velvet travel-battle gear with angly dwarfish designs, because apparently red velvet is how this guy rolls, and I’m not going to argue with him, because he has a really sweet dwarf machete.
So then, in the middle, we’ve got this guy Ori with a wispy beard that’s made of two small braids and a couple of really ambitious muttonchops, and like a woolly cowl hood his grandma knitted him or something, like with ball tassels or some shit, and a grey-brown cloak and a tunic and a generally hapless look on his face. Like, you look at this guy and you know, you know, that when Gandalf and the crew are stealthing through the forest, this is gonna be the guy who steps on a pine cone and blows their cover. He bogarts all the pipeweed and plays hackysack by the campfire. They meet Beorn and he says something stupid, and then he falls off a cliff. You just know.
So, then… we… okay. We have this guy on the left. Nori? I mean, like… standard-issue dark grey dwarf ensemble, the cape and the tunic and the huge boots and whatnot. Big hammerstaff sort of thing. Great. And then, it’s like… well, number one, he sort of has this goofy Doorman of Oz look on his face. (Maybe it’s the wingy eyebrows.) You know… okay. Fine. But then there’s… like… I can’t. I seriously can’t. What I can’t: even. He has Lisa Simpson hair. Big ol’ triangle standing up in the middle, two triangles on the sides. And then his beard is braided straight out into three more triangles. I don’t remember Nori being involved in illegal shenanigans, but I’m guessing he smuggles pipeweed in his triangles. That’s why his hair is so big: like Gretchen Wieners’, it is full of secrets.
And all the way back on the right, Dori is glaring at them like, I SWEAR TO GOD I’M GONNA LEAVE YOU TO THE WARGS NEXT TIME.
I would really appreciate some Richard Dwarfitage next, is what I’m saying.]
