New Zealand prides itself on being a real-life version of Middle-earth. And that pride is totally justified, because it’s one of the most gorgeous places I’ve ever seen… on a movie/TV/computer screen. Sadly I’ve never seen it in real life, but thanks to clever things like this new Hobbit-themed safety video from Air New Zealand, I just keep moving it higher and higher up on my bucket list. More
Topic: Elijah Wood
Even though I’m pretty sure I would marry Bilbo, Frodo, Sam, Merry or Pippin in a heartbeat (maybe even all of them, if they’re up for a little polygamy), having a hobbit as a significant other would likely have its drawbacks. So in honor of this Friday’s release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of dating a hobbit. More
I have to admit I’m biased about this issue since he was my first big celebrity crush, but I don’t think anyone reading Elijah Wood’s Reddit Ask Me Anything (AMA) yesterday could deny that he’s one of the nicest (if not the nicest) stars out there. The phrase “ask me anything” really rang true for him, since he answered questions running the gamut from favorite foods to life advice — and he gave lengthy, kind responses. More
In Maniac, Elijah Wood plays a disturbed mannequin store owner stalking and killing women in New York City. Yeah, we can see that. More

Child acting is a tenuous thing. It’s difficult to tell when actors are very young whether or not they’ve actually got talent, and sometimes, being exposed to the Hollywood life at an early age can do weird things to a person. But for every one that implodes (I’m looking at you, Lindsay Lohan) or falls into obscurity (Jake Lloyd, much?), there’s also one that manages to make the transition from child to adult actor. It’s not always seamless, and sometimes there are demons to fight; but a lot of them do come out just fine on the other side. Here are 16 of our favorites. More
Wilfred is a new television show. It is airing on FX in June. It features a suicidal Elijah Wood. Next door to Suicidal Elijah Wood is a woman with a dog. The world, by and large, sees the dog as a dog. Suicidal Elijah Wood, however, sees it as a man in a dog suit. The dog, by the way, is called Wilfred.
Does this baffle anyone else as much as it baffles me? More
Hi – we’re currently on our way to Sundance! We’re on airplane this very second (technology!), in fact, traveling to the land of movie premieres, famous people, and gift bags full of or weird fleece scarves. We plan to bring you coverage of the festival once we get there, but for now, here’s a look at who’s been wandering the snowy streets of Park City. More
Wilfred is a new comedy series about a dog who looks like a dog to everyone but Elijah Wood, who instead sees the canine as a man in a dog costume. Based on an Australian series of the same name, Wilfred is being adapted for FX. Weird? Definitely. Furries of the world: unite and take over. More
Though we knew that Kim Kardashian was participating in the creepy-coffin photo shoot for the KCA (Keep A Child Alive Foundation), which helps raise awareness for HIV/AIDS, we didn’t know that so many other celebrities would take part in the SEO-bait. Jay Sean? Swizz Beatz? It’s almost like these guys wanted their semi-obscure deaths to be a Google trending topic. More

Sorry for all the music today, but this Apples in Stereo video featuring Elijah Wood as some sort of 1980s computer nerd sent to the future is just too cool to pass up. Is anyone else reminded of those old … More
Lindsay Lohan‘s former assistant, who quit a few weeks ago, is currently fielding five-figure offers to tell all to the tabloids. But she’s turning them all down, because she’s worried Lindsay will make sure she never works in this town … More
