ELIJAH WOOD as

FRODO BAGGINS


Updated 9 JANUARY 2001.





HOW IS THIS FOR "NEW" ELIJAH MATERIAL?


Well, after we reported to you (despite the vehement and insulting denials of his publicists) that Elijah was going to play Frodo Baggins, there wasn't a lot left for us to do vis-a-vis Elijah: his publicists sure haven't given us anything despite his having been shooting Lord of the Rings for a year now (the first of three!), so we have been hard-pressed to find you something "new" that wouldn't be kept out of our hands by Elijah's snooty (and WRONG) publicists, but we finally unearthed this treasure. It is a copy of the German poster for the American film Paradise. That little boy is Elijah, circa 1991. The film was a remake of the French classic, Le Grand Chemin, and starred Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith as the couple with whom Elijah is sent to live. Also in the cast? One "Thora Birch," whom we remember as just-plain "Thora," an obnoxious pre-schooler in the Christopher Daniel Barnes television series "Day by Day," but whom most of our current readers will recognize as The Empress from the feature film Dungeons and Dragons. Let no one ever say that we don't follow the careers of "our" stars from the very beginning!





OLD NEWS FROM 1999 and 2000:



"IF IT HASN'T BEEN, IT WILL BE."

OFFERING THE ROLE OF "FRODO BAGGINS" TO ELIJAH WOOD:

Our long-time readers will have noticed a sharp increase in the amount of coverage which we have been giving actors and actresses and projects outside the United States of America, especially English and Scots films and film festivals. As of this moment, you may stop wondering why this has been so: one of our friends, correspondents, and investigative reporters, operating out of UKONLINE.CO.UK, has sent us the following:

WORLD EXCLUSIVE NEWS FLASH!


Date: 19 May 1999 17:51:05 GMT

From: reviewerIUFSSI@ukonline.co.uk

Subject: Elijah as Frodo: up-to-the-minute news

(well, as of fifteen minutes ago).

In April, this reviewer is informed that Elijah was about to audition or screen-test for the part of Frodo; report tentatively confirmed by William Morris Agency, vigorously denied by Elijah's publicist.

As of 9:00 AM PDST, 19 May 1999, the William Morris Agency has no comment on report that Elijah has been offered the role and refers this reviewer to the publicist's office, which again denies that Elijah is considering Lord of the Rings and belittles reports on the Internet.

This reviewer then establishes that the report of the offer originated from a Cinesite story, apparently stemming from Warwick Davis spilling the beans At "The Phantom Menace" premiere about who beat him for the role of Gimle the Dwarf. ('tis Mr. Spall, btw.)

As of 10:35 AM PDST, Director Peter Jackson's agency, the powerful ICM, states that (as of Cannes) the plan was to offer the role to Elijah, and "I don't know yet, but if it hasn't been, it will be {offered}."

LEST WE FORGET . . .

Girls, as we head into three to five years of a curly-haired fuzzy-footed Elijah Baggins,
let us not forget what made him so adorable in the first place! --
