Grýma Wormtongue Can't Post

I was just thinking, it would be interesting to know more of this character (however foul he is and of no great importance) before the story of the LOTR. I mean we know that he was once a man of Rohan but how did enter into the service of Saruman and thereafter becoming closest into the counsel of king Theoden? Wormtongue isn't 'such' an important character I think, still he is the one who has poisoned the ears or Theoden and contributed to the idleness of the king while Rohan was becoming weaker every day. He's also the one who kill Saruman (in a treacherous way) and so ending for good the War of the Ring. Since Tolkien has writted about many things for the background of LOTR and The Hobbit I am a bit surprised that this character has no previous tale concerning him at least not that I am aware of.

What's you thought on this?
