Elijah Wood

  • Highest Rated: 100% The Panama Papers (2018)

  • Birthday: Jan 28, 1981
  • Birthplace: Cedar Rapids, Iowa, USA
  • Born January 28, 1981, Elijah Wood has grown up to be one of the most well-respected and steadily employed actors of his generation. Born in Cedar Rapids, IA, Wood modeled and did local commercials before moving with his family to Los Angeles in 1988. It was there that Wood got his first break, a small role in a Paula Abdul video. Film work almost instantly followed, with a bit part in the 1989 Back to the Future II. It was Wood's role as Aidan Quinn's son in Barry Levinson's 1990 Avalon (the third film in the Baltimore trilogy containing Diner [1982] and Tin Men [1987]) that first gave Wood attention, as the film received widespread critical acclaim and was nominated for four Academy Awards. After a small part in the Richard Gere potboiler Internal Affairs (1990), Wood secured his first starring role in Paradise (1991), in which he played a young boy who brings estranged couple Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson back together. He received good reviews for his performance -- some said it was one of the best things about the film -- and from there went on to co-star with Mel Gibson and Jamie Lee Curtis in Forever Young and in Radio Flyer (both 1992). In 1993, Wood co-starred with Macaulay Culkin in The Good Son, which was a failure both at the box office and with filmgoers who couldn't stomach the idea of the little blond boy from Home Alone as a pre-teen psychopath. In casting Wood as the good to Culkin's evil, the film helped further establish the kind of characters Wood was to become known for: thoughtful, well meaning, and perhaps a bit confused. Wood's next film, the same year's The Adventures of Huck Finn, provided a departure from this type of character, but The War (1994) with Kevin Costner marked something of a return. Also in 1994, Wood had the title role in North, a film remarkable for the volume of bad reviews and bad box office it received, but also for the fact that practically every bad review contained a positive assessment of Wood's performance. Wood's follow-up, the 1996 Flipper, was hardly an improvement, but the subsequent critical and financial success of Ang Lee's The Ice Storm (1997) provided a positive development in the young actor's career. As the soulfully dazed and confused Mikey Carver, Wood gave a portrayal remarkable for its rendering of the thoughtfulness and exquisite hopelessness inherent in the character. 1998's Deep Impact and The Faculty did not allow Wood the same degree of character development, but were great financial successes and further stepping stones in Wood's evolution from winsome child star to impressive young actor. Following a brief turn as the boyfriend of a wannabe hip-hop groupie in James Toback's problematic Black and White (1999), Wood further evolved as an actor in Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first installation of director Peter Jackson's adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy. His most hotly anticipated project, the 2001 film gave Wood top billing as Frodo Baggins alongside a glittering cast that included Ian McKellen, Cate Blanchett, and Liv Tyler. That same year the young actor could be seen in less mystical surroundings courtesy of Ed Burns' Ash Wednesday, a crime drama that also featured Oliver Platt and Rosario Dawson. In 2002, Wood let his vocal chords for Disney's straight-to-video release of The Adventures of Tom Thumb and Thumbelina. Of course, his most substantial role of 2002 is unarguably his return to the role of hobbit Frodo Baggins in the second installment of Tolkien's Lord of the Rings trilogy; specifically, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers.2003 proved to be a similar year for Wood -- after two relatively small jobs (his role credited only as "The Guy" in Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over and his stint as First Assistant Director in Sean Astin's The Long and Short of It served purely as a break for Elijah), the young actor once again resumed his role for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.

QUOTES FROM Elijah Wood CHARACTERS

Frank Zito
You will not go out tonight! Is that clear? You will stay home with me!
Rita
Please don't kill me!
Frank Zito
Oh, I'm not going to kill you. I'm gonna keep you.
Frodo Baggins
I wish the ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

Barney Snow
You don't understand what I'm talking about because it's not something you feel.
Barney Snow
I'm not going to apologize for the fact that I'm not dying.
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
You know in my world Casey, there were limitless oceans as far as the eye could see. Beautiful, huh? Till it started to dry out. So I escaped, came here, and I met you, all of you, and all of you were different from the others. You were lost and lonely, just like me. And I thought that maybe I could give you a taste of my world. A world without anger, without fear, without attitude. Where the underachiever goes home at night to parents who care. The jock can be smart, the ugly duckling beautiful, and the class wuss doesn't have to live in terror. The new girl - well - the new girl she can just fit right in with anybody. People who are just like her. You see Casey, even Mary-Beth's feelings can be hurt by a bunch of pathetic, lost, little outcasts who truly believe that their disaffected lonely life is the only way they can survive. I can make you a part of something so special Casey, so perfect, so fearless. Don't you want that, Casey?
Casey Connor
I'd rather be afraid!
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Fine. Alright. Have it your way! 'Cause this is where your land of fiction gets it right: we win. End of story!
Joel Barish
I remember that speech really well.
Clementine Kruczynski
I had you pegged, didn't I?
Joel Barish
You had the whole human race pegged.
Patrick
Hmmm. Probably
Frodo Baggins
Mordor! I hope the others find a safer road.
Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee
Strider'll look after them.
Frodo Baggins
I don't suppose we'll ever see them again.
Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee
We may yet, Mr. Frodo. We may.
Frodo Baggins
Sam? I'm glad you're with me.
Frodo Baggins
Ant thus it was. A Fourth Age of Middle-earth began. And the Fellowship of the Ring though eternally bound by friendship and love was ended. Thirtheen months to the day since Gandalf sent us on our long journey, we found ourselves looking upon a familiar sight. We were home.
North
Hang on guys, I think I left my butter churner in the overhead locker, hah. [to pilots] Floor it!
North

Casey Connor
I say we go for the coach. He turned Stan. He's the one. Or do you want to wait for them to come to us?
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Either way we're completely unarmed.
Zeke
Maybe not. I might have some more skat. In my trunk.
Casey Connor
In your trunk? In your car? Amongst the aliens? Oh, that's convenient!.
Casey Connor

Huckleberry Finn
Personally, I don't see no glory in punchin' an ignorant lardass. But, I gots to!
Frodo Baggins
How do you go on when in your heart, you begin to understand there is no going back? There are some things that time cannot mend, some hurts that go too deep that have taken hold.
Frodo Baggins

I think we should get off the road. Get off the road! Quick!
Samwise Gamgee
Do you remember the taste of strawberries?
Frodo Baggins
No Sam...I can't recall the taste of food, nor the sound of water, or the touch of grass.
Frodo Baggins
It's gone. It's done.
Samwise Gamgee
Yes, Mr. Frodo. It's over now. *Lava erupts around the two Hobbits*
Frodo Baggins
I can see the Shire... the Brandywine River... Bag End... Gandalf's fireworks... the lights in the Party Tree.
Samwise Gamgee
Rosie Cotton dancing. She had ribbons in her hair. If ever I was married to someone, it would've been her. *sniffling* It would've been her. *sobbing*

Frodo Baggins
We are bound to an errand of secrecy. Those who claim to oppose the enemy would do well not to hinder us.
Faramir
The enemy? (Looks at dead soldier) His sense of duty was no greater than yours, I deem. You wonder what his name is. Where he came from and if he really was evil at heart. What lies or threats drove him on this long march from home. Would he not rather have stayed there...in peace? War will make corpses of us all. Bind their hands.

Samwise Gamgee
I wonder if we'll ever be put into songs or tales.
Frodo Baggins
What?
Samwise Gamgee
I wonder if people will ever say, 'let's hear about Frodo and the Ring' and they'll say, 'yes, it's one of my favorite stories. Frodo was really courageous, wasn't he, Dad?' 'Yes, my boy. The most famousest of Hobbits and that's saying a lot'.
Frodo Baggins
Ha, you've left out one of the chief characters: 'Samwise the Brave'. I want to hear more about Sam. Frodo wouldn't have gotten far without Sam.
Samwise Gamgee
Now, Mr. Frodo, you shouldn't make fun. I was being serious.
Frodo Baggins
So was I.
Frodo Baggins
Then Frodo kissed Merry and Pippin, and finally to Sam, and went aboard, and the sails were hoisted, and the wind blew, and slowly the ship slipped along des estuary gray and light of the Phial of Galadriel Frodo wore in high scintillation and died. And the ship on the high seas internal west, until at last on a night of rain Frodo felt a fragrance in the air and heard singing coming upon the waters, and he thought that, as in the dream he had in the house of Tom Bombadil, the gray rain curtain was transformed into silver and crystal, and the curtain was opened and appeared before the white beaches, and beyond a distant country to green light a quick sunrise.
Frodo Baggins
I can not do this, Sam.
Samwise Gamgee
I know. It's all wrong. By rights we Should not even be here. But we are. It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo. The ones that really Mattered. Full of darkness and danger, They Were. And Sometimes you did not want to know the end. Because How Could the end be happy? How Could the world go back to the way it was so much bad When had happened? But in the end, it's only a passing thing, This shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And When the sun shines it will shine out the clearer. Those were the stories That stayed with you. That meant something, even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk In Those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only They Did not. They kept going. Because They Were holding on to something.
Frodo Baggins
What are we holding on to, Sam?
Samwise Gamgee
That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo ... and it's worth fighting for.
Frodo Baggins
I'm glad that you're here with me, Samwise Gamgee. Here at the end of all things.

You draw too much attention to yourself, 'Mister Underhill'. [shoves Frodo into a vacant room]
Frodo Baggins
What do you want?
Aragorn
A little more caution from you, that's no trinket you carry.
Frodo Baggins
I carry nothing.
Aragorn
Indeed. I can avoid being seen, if I wish, but to disappear entirely, that is a rare gift.
Frodo Baggins
Go back Sam! I'm going to Mordor alone!
Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee
Of course you are, and I'm coming with you!
Matt Buckner

Do you remember the Shire, Mr. Frodo? It'll be spring soon. And the orchards will be in blossom. And the birds will be nesting in the hazel thicket. And they'll be sowing the summer barley in the lower fields... and eating the first of the strawberries with cream. Do you remember the taste of strawberries?
Frodo Baggins
No, Sam. I can't recall the taste of food... nor the sound of water... nor the touch of grass. I'm... naked in the dark, with nothing, no veil... between me... and the wheel of fire! I can see him... with my waking eyes!
Samwise Gamgee
Then let us be rid of it... once and for all! Come on, Mr. Frodo. I can't carry it for you... but I can carry you!
Frodo Baggins
I'm glad that you're here with me, Samwise Gamgee. Here at the end of all things.
Frodo Baggins
This is sting. You've met her before, haven't you, Gollum? Release him or I'll slit your throat.

A wizard is never late, Frodo Baggins. Nor is he early; he arrives precisely when he means to.

Memphis
Oh, you'll know. She's got a wiggle in her walk, and a giggle in her talk. And when she sings, it darn near breaks your heart.

Noo!
Frodo Baggins

You both take the drug.

Gabe Santora
Hey yo, pisswad, you're in my way.
Casey Connor
I'm sorry. I was breathing here.
Gabe Santora
Yeah, that's the problem; you're occupying my air, anal probe.

Delilah Profitt
Hello Casey. Where you gonna go, huh? The class wuss... eternal little loser who comes to school everyday knowing this is it. You've been labeled "pathetic" since first grade and you're afraid it's going to bleed over for the rest of your life. Well we can stop it Casey. We can help you belong. Isn't that what you really want?

Please don't do this Delilah.
Delilah Profitt
I haven't been this happy since...since...before my dad died. You know you want me Casey. Come on. Let's do it together.

Casey Connor
I say we go for the coach. He turned Stan. He's the one. Or do you want to wait for them to come to us?
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Either way we're completely unarmed.
Zeke
Maybe not. I might have some more skat...In my trunk.
Zeke
Maybe not. I might have some more skat. In my trunk.
Casey Connor
In your trunk? In your car? Amongst the aliens? Oh, that's convenient.
Zeke
(about the drug) - Sniff it.
Zeke
(about the drug) Sniff it.
Casey Connor
You're out of your fu**ing mind!
Zeke
I'm about to take my chances. I leave for five minutes, and when I come back everyone's a fu**ing alien. Now, if I have to Men in Black your ass, you're gonna fu**ing take it!
Zeke
(about the drugs) - Stan, take it.
Zeke
(about the drugs) Stan, take it.
Stan Rosado
No way, you're taking it!
Casey Connor
(laughing and obviously high) - You're taking it!
Casey Connor
(laughing and obviously high) You're taking it!
Stan Rosado
(Stan picks up gun and points it at Casey) - What the hell is wrong with him?
Stan Rosado
(Stan picks up gun and points it at Casey) What the hell is wrong with him?
Zeke
Nothing's wrong with him. He's tweaking you a**hole! Let him fu**ing tweak!
Casey Connor
(laughing) - Tweak! Tweak!
Casey Connor
(laughing) Tweak! Tweak!
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
You know in my world Casey, there were limitless oceans as far as the eye could see. Beautiful, huh? Till it started to dry out. So I escaped, came here, and I met you, all of you, and all of you were different from the others. You were lost and lonely, just like me. And I thought that maybe I could give you a taste of my world. A world without anger, without fear, without attitude. Where the underachiever goes home at night to parents who care. The jock can be smart, the ugly duckling beautiful, and the class wuss doesn't have to live in terror. The new girl - well - the new girl she can just fit right in with anybody. People who are just like her. You see Casey, even Mary-Beth's feelings can be hurt by a bunch of pathetic, lost, little outcasts who truly believe that their disaffected lonely life is the only way they can survive. I can make you a part of something so special Casey, so perfect, so fearless...Don't you want that, Casey?

Casey Connor
I'd rather be afraid!
Marybeth Louise Hutchinson
Fine. Alright. Have it your way! 'Cause this is where your land of fiction gets it right: we win. End of story!
Zeke
(laughing on drugs, and talking about Delilah) - Is she always this much fun, man?

Casey Connor
Why me first?
Zeke
It's your birthright, man. Just fu**ing take it.
Stan Rosado
Let's go alien for a second. Why here? Why Ohio?
Casey Connor
Cause if you were going to take over the world, would you blow up the White House Independence Day style...or sneak in through the backdoor?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
You know what, Casey, it's fiction. Okay? - It's science fiction.

Casey Connor
Everybody gets hung up on the science part, which has nothing to do with it. They're getting at us through the fiction.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
So, aliens have just been setting us up over the years, creating this happy little make-believe existence...with their E.T. and their Men In Black movies...just so that nobody would believe it if it really happened?

I think so. Yeah...You're not buying this, are you?
Casey Connor

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
No, I'm not...But it's kind of cool.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
No, I'm not. But it's kind of cool.
Casey Connor
Everybody's been acting really strange, especially the faculty.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Tell me about it. It's like they've all turned into fu**ing pod people...or something.
Casey Connor
Into what people?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Invasion of the Body Snatchers. A small town was taken over by aliens...That was a joke.
Casey Connor
Look, what if it really happened?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
What if that really happened?
Casey Connor
I think something's taking over our school.
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
The Body Snatchers is a story somebody made up, dingus. It's located in the fiction section of the library.
Casey Connor
So is Schindler's List. All fiction is based on some truth, right? What does Miss Burke teach us in English 101? Write what you know. How do we know this writer guy...Jack Finney, didn't encounter aliens in his high school...which led him to write a book about an alien invasion?

Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Your conspiracy theory is flawed.
Casey Connor
How so?
Stokely 'Stokes' Mitchell
Jack Finney's The Body Snatchers is a blatant rip-off...of The Puppet Masters by Robert Heinlein. So you can completely disregard that entire work.

The point is they're here, they've been here and they're here again.
Casey Connor
Look, you saw it. Mrs. Brummel was dead. They attacked Nurse Harper.
Delilah Profitt
"They"? Who are "they"? Casey, we don't even know who "they" are.

You can be such a...
Delilah Profitt
What?
Casey Connor
Pretty cool human being when you're not being a first-class, grade-A bitch.
Delilah Profitt
You hitting on me, Casey?
Casey Connor
No. No. I just think you can be cool. Sometimes...this not being one of them.
Casey Connor
No. No. I just think you can be cool. Sometimes, this not being one of them.
Casey Connor
Why do you rag on me so much? What did I do?
Delilah Profitt
Nothing. It's just your fate. You're that geeky Stephen King kid. There's one of you in every school.
Casey Connor
It must really blow being you.
Stan Rosado
You have no idea.
Casey Connor
I don't think a person should run unless he's being chased.
Coach Joe Willis
"Being chased."...I like that.
Coach Joe Willis
'Being chased.' I like that.
