Ian Mune (1941) played a bounder (specifically, the one whose head was cut off by a Ringwraith) in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring. He also served as an additional second unit director; he describes one of his works as "[i]t was the bit where the hobbits were being dragged from the burning tavern by the orcs"[1], which made it into the trailer for Peter Jackson's The Two Towers. It is unclear as to what scene he is referring; the desribed scene is not found. He probably referred to a scene shot for the Mirror of Galadriel scene in The Fellowship of the Ring.

In June 2007, he and 14 other actors filed a lawsuit against New Line Cinema over merchandising royalties.

Quotes

"There were three grades of rubber feet - there were the Cadillacs (for the stars), Fords for the smaller parts and the extras had Fiats. It depended on how long you had to wear them for.[...]By the time it was all over my feet were awash, and so very, very sore."
― Ian Mune, Puke Ariki interview. He wore Fords.
