    Yea.. i've always wondered that.. Easterlings were supposedly the first ones through the gates... but.. instead we see trolls and orcs.. :/ I never see any easterlings.. maybe we will in the EE though.. O.. i heard that..

    in the EE Peter jackson plays one of the corsair pirates.. and he and legolas battle.. then legolas kills him. :p I think you even see a glimce of him in the theatrical version, the big fat pirate walking the deck in that short scene.. i think that's our PJ..

    You can see some easterlings when the Catapults are fired at night (At least in the Weapons and Warfare book screenshot theres a couple standing next to the catapults. Theres also some shots of them marching and fighting alongside orcs.. but these were never in the thearatrical version)

    You can also see some when the host of Mordo charges into Gondors shield wall when the gate is breached. Look for their distinctive three pronged helmet.

    He also plays the drunk dude eating the carrot in Bree in FotR

    As for the Easterlings, I imagine in the EE, we will see them not only in the battle of Minas Tirith, but maybe also in Mordor when the Orcs cross paths with them just before Frodo and Sam escape (a little Rankin-Bass' cartoon RotK retro ne1?) :)

    Maybe their screen time was down sized to strenghten the "there will be no dawn for men" part of the story line. Granted the Haradrim are in but they are more important to the story line.

    / just pontificating

    That's right you can also catch glimpses of them after The Dead Men come. In the EE you can catch a glimpse of one after Aragorn and Gimli kill Gothmog. But yes I also own a copy of the Weapons and Warfare, and I noticed the same thing with the catapults.
