- "I command. I return to Isengard by the shortest road."
- —Uglúk in The Two Towers
After his capture of the two hobbits at the end of The Fellowship of the Ring, Uglúk stood by his lord Saruman's demands when a band of Orcs, led by Grishnákh, tried to apprehend Merry and Pippin to take them to Mordor, and he beheaded Grishnákh's follower to prevent Saruman's orders from being disobeyed.
Portrayal in adaptations Edit
In Peter Jackson's movie adaptation of The Two Towers, Uglúk is played by Nathaniel Lees. In the preceding film, the initial leader of the Uruk-hai was Lurtz, who killed Boromir and was slain by Aragorn at Amon Hen. Uglúk took command of the troop after his death, proving himself disciplined by standing by his masters' demands.
