    IMDB has him (Lawrence Makoare) named Gothmog. I think they took the cast listing right off the credits.

    The Mouth of Sauron was a human, more specifically a Black Numenorian. That may been what you were thinking of.

    Extended spoiler (highlight):
    Both Aragorn and Gimli kill Gothmog during the battle of the Pelennor.

    yeah his name is gothmog (like the lord of the balrogs from the sillmarilion) thats what they said in the weapons and warfare book, personally i thought he looked cool but he reminded me of sloth from the goonies.

    I thought that Gothmog was the name of one of the Nazgul... the one who had the sword with the diamond shaped pommel who attacked Frodo at Osgiliath. At least that is what i recollect from the books, but i will withdraw this post if i am wrong.

    And by the way, the Orc Commander was played by the same actor who played Lurtz

    well i have heard that gothmog #2 is orc, human, and even wraith. when i read it i always kind of though of him along the line as a dark numenorean, almost sorcerorish. as far as the way they made him look in the movie, well that kind of bugged me. he looked disabled thanks to his deformation (he never used his left hand and held it like it was deformed) and i would think a disabled orc would have been eliminated pretty quickly in its life.

    Since Frodo didn't even go to Osigiliath in the books, I'd say that you're most likely wrong.

    Gothmogs name is kind of like the battering ram named after Morgoths hammer Grond.

    thing is, although it was in the book, and people in the middle ages did do that, I just didn't like it.
    heck I didn't like it in the book either!
