Actor Lawrence Makoare, who appeared in The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Rings, as Lurtz has been confirmed as appearing in Bond 20 as a henchman. There is still no word, however, on what size of a role this will encompass for Makoare.
Makoare confirmed the casting in an interview with LOTR news site TheOneRing.Net. The only other news that Makoare revealed about Bond 20 is that he will soon be flying to Iceland to film scenes. No comment on whether or not he'll be needed at Pinewood Studios for filming though.
Thanks to Michael for the tip off about the news!
