if you watch the backstage they explain why they had to make him younger than in the book. They gave a coherent explaination to every change to the dwarves' look they had to make. Besides, he's a book character. Everyone may have a different image of him. Anyway Richard Armitage did a wonderful job portraying Thorin...

THIS could be Thorin Oakenshield. Not that FAKE money-eating movie version.

I agree with you they could have let him look more dwarvish.

They have chosen a good actor though, 
did you know that richard didn't like it that Thorin had such a short beard?
They gave a explanation for his beard, in his young years in Erebor he had quite a beard, but when smaug came it was burned off,
In honor of the lost dwarves of Erebor he keeps it short, and when he will be king once again he would let it grow to it's full length.
although we all know that will never happen

Sorry, just had to say that, please don't think I want to offend you! :)
