Uglúk was an Uruk-hai who captained the Uruk-hai scouts who took Merry and Pippin after Boromir got killed. In the film, Lurtz was the first
to command the squad before Uglúk took over, but in the book, Lurtz never led the scouts; Uglúk was the leader all the time. He was a large and strong Uruk-hai, but was killed by riders of Rohan, possibly Éomer. He was played by Nathaniel Lees in Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of The Two Towers.
