:: Mia_evenstar sent along this link to more Mardi Gras pics - Thanks!!!
:: Marie found this in the October 23rd ('03') issue of 'Entertainment Weekly' - "Elijah Wood once bum-rushed me! I'm standing there and all of a sudden Elijah Wood and the other hobbit come up to me and are like, 'Omigod, Jenna Jameson! Can we star in a movie with you?"
:: Fanie from the Project Monaghan website sends along this great news: Each year, we have an auction of an item from our merchandise shop signed by some members of the LOTR cast. This time, Elijah Wood, Andy Serkis, Dominic Monaghan and Sean Astin have signed a pair of boxers for us. Each of them have written a personnal message on it. Elijah's message says: " Save them all, make Treabeard Proud!" Elijah have been saying he really loves the idea of Project Monaghan and supports it. You can head over here to see pictures of the boxers and the auction page on ebay: You can also visit www.project-monaghan.net on this or email me at fanie@project-monaghan.net. ALL the profits made on the auction goes to the Project Monaghan 2004 fundraising. We do not make any personnal profit out of it.The organisation chosen for this year's fundraising is www.treepeople.org a wonderful organisation and we suggest you all visit their website. Thank you for supporting Project Monaghan! :-)

March 3, 2004

:: Elijah was at the Hidalgo Premiere [Viggo's new movie] ... pics are here ... Thanks Will!
:: Elijah will be on Jay Leno on Wednesday, March 10 -- Thanks TORn
:: Ian Smith has some great Oscars pics up and a small report here
:: A small article which Christie found:
Wood describes himself as a romantic, and then has second thoughts about what that means. “I find waking up next to someone the most romantic and sexy thing ever. It’s as simple as that.” But he’s not seeing anyone at the moment. “I’ve just had my heart broken. Now I’m single again.” When asked how he has tried to heal his broken heart, Wood giggles maniacally. “Do you wanna know the first thing I did? I put on Black Sabbath, because rock heals all wounds,” he says. We laugh. Time’s up and Wood is off - “Have a wonderful day!”- but then agrees to have his picture taken with a journalist for a German magazine. Wood, whose energy will again fill the screen this spring opposite Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, prattles on, relentlessly engaged and affable - even about the guy’s camera. “Aren’t they the coolest? Canons…how many mega pixels?”

:: Found a new ESOTSM pic up at lightsout.movieweb.com
:: Araknid from the board found this info from ESOTSM [thanks]:
At their initial meeting, Elijah Wood surprised Gondry by expressing his familiarity with, and admiration for, the director’s and screenwriter’s oeuvres. “I’m a huge fan of both,” explains Wood. “This was a dream opportunity. I also felt quite lucky to be able to work with actors I admire.”
Initially, Gondry had been thinking of a different type of actor for the role of Patrick, “but Elijah ended up to be so perfect; he just [brought the character to life.]”
For his part, the actor had been looking for a different type of role from… Frodo In the Lord of the Rings films. “A lot of people judge Patrick pretty quickly, as a devious character. But he’s not a bad guy; he can’t really get women in any normal way, to he has to use somebody else’s knowledge.”
“There was a real live energy on the set, the first couple of days, the camera would roll and we wouldn’t necessarily know it. Michel wanted to create real moments, so there was a free-form element to the way that things were shot.”
One facet that Gondry found was chemistry, which he stroked, between Wood and Ruffalo. Gondry reports, “The relationship was like big brother/little brother. They are just great to watch. The main storyline can get very emotional and intense, while these two guys are having a really good time.”
Ruffalo adds, “You see Stan and Patrick fumbling… around, banging their equipment together, and getting chips and cokes and stuff all over medical equipment… Elijah and I had a really good time.”

:: Wasn't Elijah awesome on Leno? :) If you unfortunately missed him on Jay Leno.. Brenda sent along this FAQ that is on the Jay Leno website:
Q: I missed a show that I just have to see, what do I do?
A: It's called TiVo. Look into it. Unfortunately, we don't sell tapes or transcripts of past broadcasts. But just between us… Shows generally repeat the week after their original airdate. For instance, if you saw a show you want a copy of that was on Wednesday night, it will generally air the next week Wednesday night at 2:05am. (Remember to set your VCR for 2:05am the next day since it's actually repeating after midnight.) To be on the safe side, check your local listings to confirm that time is correct due to local affiliate choice and/or time zone changes. And please don't ask us to come and set your VCR for you, we have to draw the line somewhere.

:: Samaria sent along a new but old article - (if you get what i mean :))
:: Amy sent along this snippet: Elijah Wood did five hours of interviews for new Rings DVD - The DVD of the final instalment of Lord of the Rings goes on sale in May. Three months faster than the first and second parts of the trilogy. It will be around 15 minutes longer than the cinema version with two or three hours of documentary added in. Elijah Wood, who played Frodo, has done his fair share of interviews for the recording. "I've done about five hours of interview footage... yeah, five hours. Sitting down for five hours." The young actor himself is looking forward to getting hold of a copy as a piece of history. "It's nice to be able to show my family and my kids and grandkids what it was like to be a part of something like that."

March 21, 2004

:: For those in England, Lisa tells me that 'Ash Wednesday' is currently playing @ the Trocadero cinema in Piccadilly, London :)
:: Josie and Amanda sent some articles.. -Article 1- aaaaand.. -Article 2- -- Thanks girls!
:: From those articles, im sure you've now realised that Elijah will be starring in 2 new movies - 'Sin City' with Bruce Willis and Leo DiCaprio.. and the other is 'Everything is Illuminated' :) Thanx to all those who sent in the news!
:: An article from E!Online had this small tidbit: Frodo's Mojo - After achieving worldwide fame with the Lord of the Rings cycle, Elijah Wood agreed to a Hobbit-sized role in Sunshine because of his desire to work with Kaufman and Gondry. "I'm a huge fan of both," says Wood, whose wish list of collaborators also includes Wes Anderson (Rushmore), Darren Aronofsky (Requiem for a Dream) and Spike Jonze (Being John Malkovich)." - Thanks to Aileen for that! :)
:: Heather sent a quick overview of 'Sunshine' -- To everyone who hasn't seen the movie yet, I have to say that it was mindblowing. The use of the camera, the story line, and the actors made a perfect movie. Although Elijah only had a small part, he was very funny, and brought a nice sense of comedy to an otherwise serious movie. Because it has a complicated plot, I would only suggest seeing it if you are ready to think. Overall, I give the movie an A just as Elijah (of course)! Go see the movie!
