:: Bunnie found this recent Elijah article
:: Dragon wrote in to say that Hallmark has announced that they will be coming out with a Frodo Baggins Christmas Ornament available in October at any Hallmark store: [more]
:: Kaewi sent along some info about the character of Kevin in the comic book Sin City [the character which Elijah will be playing in the movie] from this review: As well as Miller portrayed Marv, I'd say that an even better character was Kevin, the villain of this tale. He never says a word--but he's creepy as hell: the half-smile, the swift movements, the somewhat stooped shoulders. You know how they say it's always the quiet ones? Well, they don't know what they're talking about until they've seen Kevin. ... sounds like quite a challenge for Elijah - Thanks Kaewi

:: Another article from the Swiss film magazine 'Close-Up' says:
"The "Lord of the Rings"-Star Elijah Wood has to be attentiv that he isn't recognized as Frodo for ever. That's why he shoots films like the love-story "All I Want" or now the melodrama "Everything is Illuminated". In this film he plays an American Jewish. He is looking in the Ukraini for that woman who saved his grandfather from the nazis and death. The shooting starts in mid-June in Prag."
Danke, Iris :)
:: In other news, it's my birthday tomorrow. Haha! *throws confetti*

:: Ash met Elijah on the set of The Yank just over a week ago and has very generously decided to share her experience and pictures with the visitors of A+F... you can read the encounter and view the pictures [here] - Ash has asked that the pictures not be reposted anywhere else unless she has personally given them permission, if you want to share her experience direct people to that page. Please respect her wishes. Thanks for sharing that Ash!
:: Rafferty sent along some info about the character Elijah will be playing Sin City - warning: contains major spoilers. Also, this snippet from an article:

“It’s just a bump in the road and you just have to grow from it,” Michaels said. “Most of the time I just think about how Elijah Wood went to IMTA [International Modeling and Talent Association shows in New York and Los Angeles] and the first time nobody wanted him, but the second time everyone did.”

:: Another Elijah mention from this article:
"I was dumbfounded because so much money is spent on E3. It's like an amusement park," Bettenhausen says. "And the parties, the parties are great. Sony and Nintendo throw lavish parties. There are famous musicians, too.This year Nintendo has Sheryl Crow. The Foo Fighters have been there. Stars like Robin Williams, Elijah Wood and Steven Spielberg go to E3. It's not just for nerds and geeks."

- Thanks again Rafferty

:: Mimi sent in this info:
I was listening to the radio at work today- the Jo Whiley show on Radio 1 (UK) and Jo was saying that she was supposed to have Jay Z as a guest on Friday but he's having tea with Prince Charles instead (?!!) so they announced that ELIJAH WOOD is coming instead
Her show is on between 10am and 1pm, guests are usually on around 12pm.(GMT)
You can listen to Radio 1 online at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1 hope you can catch it, it might be breakfast time in the States(?) when it's on, so enjoy!

Thanks for that info Mimi

:: Rafferty sent in this little article:
EVER SINCE Elijah Wood started shooting his latest film, The Yank, in London this year the press have reported the Lord of the Rings star taking the Tube to work, or going to see a West Ham match (the movie is about an American who falls in with British soccer hooligans). But at the movie’s wrap party last Monday, Wood showed off a more unusual skill: deejaying. The former Hobbit spun discs for the cast and crew, revealing a taste for bhangra. “He had the whole room dancing,” said a witness. - Source: The TimesOnLine
Also, this article was sent in: Keeper of the Ring - Thanks as always Rafferty!


May 14, 2004

:: Lilith has posted *heaps* of pictures of Elijah from his appearance at the Lincoln Center up at her site. You can view them all [all 6 pages of them] here, however please respect her wishes and don't repost them anywhere without seeking her permission. She was nice enough to share them with us so don't abuse that. Thanks Lilith!

:: Some info:
Elijah Wood is to fill in for John Peel on an edition of his Radio 1 show. He was offered the stint after he admitted to being a fan of Peel during a recent appearance on Jo Whiley's show. "If you're at all a fan of music, you hear about it with John Peel and the Peel Sessions," said Wood. "I would absolutely love to do that. Oh my god yes." A date for his debut has not yet been set.
Apparantly the show is usually on between 10 and midnight some weeknights [Thanks Lindsey and Georgia] - Thanks to *everyone* who sent that along
:: Rafferty once again has sent in some info: Dougie Brimson's thoughts on The Yank

:: Lilit sent in some pictures. One from Mardi Gras, one from the Hidalgo party and one from a magazine called Bop. Thank you girl :)
:: Alexandra sent in two pages from a Russian magazine, here and here. Thank you heaps :)
:: Yet again, sorry for my absence! ♥

:: Important notice:
Incidentally, though I generally abhor addressing items like this because of the gnashing of teeth that ensues, that "news" thing going around about Elijah having a girlfriend is very unlikely to be authentic. The original source for it is a re-hash blurb generator called Contactmusic which is notorious for being unreliable and making up/mangling quotes from other interviews. No one can seem to find the original interview source they took it from, either. As always, when news of this nature comes out, be cautious about where it comes from. Unless it's a direct quote from a full, first-person interview (not a blurb) in a well-known media outlet-- preferably a video or audio interview-- take it with a giant salt lick, because you never know where it came from originally, or whether the person who wrote the item even talked to the person in question at all. Teen magazines and celeb rags, especially European ones, are particularly bad about this (remember all the places that were calling Hannah [his sister] Elijah's girlfriend? Yeah, that stuff.) Some even make up interviews entirely. So be careful about what you read. Edit: I was right. It looks like the original source is an "interview" from a Danish teen magazine. Low-level publications like that almost never get actual interviews with celebs. They put stuff together from other sources, and often make up quotes, or embellish stuff to make it sound new. Elijah's actually said before that he doesn't give interviews to teen magazines, so the chances of this one being authentic are pretty low. If it were a quote in, say Premiere, or Rolling Stone, or the LA Times, that's a different story.

:: Btw, this is not our opinion we have no idea if it is reliable but it actually is interesting to know.

:: Cheryl's Everything is Illuminated website posted this interesting info:
It seems as if there is an open ad (dated May 10, 2004) in Prague for an Elijah Wood look-alike, which speculations abound, could mean that they are trying to look for someone to play Safran. (So does this debunk the dual role rumour for Elijah?). The ad is here
Thanks Cheryl, and Emmi for letting me know.
:: Rafferty posted an article on the board about Elijah being at E3, along with a picture: [view it here]
