I don’t think anyone can ever forget the youthful appearance of Elijah Wood who seems to be perfect for the role of a hobbit, considering his almost ageless looks and ability to put on the innocence of a lost and heartwarming puppy. Anyway, it seems that the actor has moved on to Bouldin Creek last year in a large Victorian home that seems to have cost up to at least a million US dollars which, while probably fairly affordable for such an affluent and quite famous celebrity, may be a bit too much for the more common citizen. Oh well, after Lord of the Rings, he did go on to state in one interview that he had already succeeded in being part of the century’s most epic fantasy flick and considers it one of his greatest achievements. No doubt the fandom agrees with him considering the success of said films and has even gotten him at least a cameo appearance in The Hobbit films.
Elijah Wood has been around for quite a while in the film industry with his beginnings somewhere in TV commercials. Later on, he played as an extra in Back to the Future and from there began to steadily grow popular. Due to his innocent appearance, as mentioned above, he went on to play the roles of troubled children like that of Mark Evans from The Good Son who finds himself at the mercy of a psychotic cousin/brother played by Macaulay Culkin and Mike from Radio Flyer where he must fight against an abusive father to protect his brother from harm. And then there was The War, a truly heart-wrenching story about the effects of the Vietnam War and how the pieces of a shattered family attempts to put itself back together.
Apparently, Elijah Wood, who seems to be in the process of filming Cooties, a horror comedy film about some strange virus hitting an elementary school where Clint Hadson (Elijah Wood’s character) happens to be a substitute teacher at.
