Nearly seven years ago, Elijah Wood said something about playing Frodo to an interviewer that resonated with many fans. The journalist wrote that Wood, although he had gone on to other roles since the trilogy, nevertheless did not disavow the character of Frodo. "I think at a certain point the attention on those films will die down, but I think I will always be associated, as will everyone else, with those films," Wood told his interviewer. "I'll do other things. But Frodo I think will always be there, like my little shadow." (Raymond Johnston, Prague Post, August 19, 2004). Now Elijah Wood is reprising the role of Frodo, and his "little shadow" will be entering the light once more.

Looking for a Sideshow collectible this morning, I was Googling "Bilbo Baggins bust" and ended up reading a snippet in a site called "the Frisky" that first raised my eyebrows then made me guffaw. The writer's remarks about the trilogy's hobbits perfectly illustrate how insensible some people are to the appeal of hobbits, including Frodo's.

Note: A Very Silly Post, sure to offend some.

Rated "Mature" for talk of "packages", as well as images of racy men's underwear and fully-naked Iggy Pop, dimly lit but clear enough. Also, there are loads of images (sorry, dial-up friends). Almost all images in this post are links that can be clicked open for larger versions.

[community profile] elijah_finds a couple of weeks ago, we were in a state of excited anticipation over Elijah Wood's upcoming portrayal of youthful Iggy Pop in The Passenger, having come across a lot of old video footage of Iggy performing and giving interviews in the 70's. At last, watching Iggy talking and performing, many of us began to feel that Elijah Wood could really do this and do it well.

It was only inevitable and not merely prurient that the matter of "packages" would come up. Although I had known next to nothing about Iggy Pop and the Stooges before Elijah Wood was cast in the role, I now have read quite a bit.

Iggy had a renowned package. Read more... )How might Elijah Wood, Mr. Average Guy....



....be made to look like Iggy Pop, Mr. Trouser Snake?



There are a few options.

This is the last set of screencaps of the four.

This is merely a string of frames continuing directly from the previous set, showing Sandy's reaction shots as the dolphin swims off. The close-ups alternate with shots of the dolphin, farther and farther out to sea, until it is breeching far off in the distance, the sea lit by the nearly-setting sun.

I like to imagine these as illustrating Willow's Frodo after he finally will have been made whole again....

Here is the third set of four.

In these, Sandy has climbed up the ladder and leapt onto the deck, turning around to ready himself to say goodbye to the animal he has come to love. First he has to command Flipper to go. Then Sandy watches as the dolphin swims away.

I loved the range of expressions in these frames. Great illustrations for fanfic, too. *grin*

Here is the second of four sets of screencaps. These frames occur in the film immediately after the previous twelve.

To me, he is so beautiful in these, my jaw literally drops.

I know I'm a little bent, but, a year ago, in an attempt to watch all of Elijah Wood's old films, I rented Flipper. It was my duty, as a Frodo fan!

Thinking it was going to be a dull re-tread of the old TV series, I was pleasantly surprised by the watchability of this "for the whole family" film. The actors were engaging, the Bahamian scenery idyllic, the cinematography lovely, and the musical scoring quite good (no TV "Flipper" song for the opening, thankfully).

And, best of all, it had ... heavens! ... the most gorgeous male teenager I've ever seen. The cast list said I was watching Elijah Wood as 'Sandy' -- but I knew better.

As I watched, modern-teenager 'Sandy' (with all his modern-teenager pleasures and pains) simply disappeared. Instead, in my mind, 'Sandy' was transformed into young 'tween Frodo, suitably coifed in a mop of unruly dark curls, and donning a pair of scruffy front-placket breeks and a torn shirt. Except when he was wet and shirtless.... Read more... )

O.K. fans, this set of caps of Elijah Wood learning swordplay along with his fellow hobbit actors is the last I have made from the FotR Extras. I really, really love them.

Many of us were saddened (disappointed? grieved? furious?) that film-Frodo never got to do much on screen with his sword. *sniffle* In Rivendell, he got our hopes up, holding Sting aloft when Bilbo presented it to him, turning it about to admire it for the fine weapon it was. But, subsequently he only managed to acquit himself with a sword in Moria, stabbing the cave troll.

Well, no, that's not precisely true....

Yep, another set of gorgeous close-ups of film Frodo.

This set is from a brief moment in "Teaser Two," included in the FotR TE DVD Extras. Yes, this beautiful sequence comes from yet another theatrical trailer for Fellowship. How the fans must have been going berserk. I never saw any of these trailers, of course, since I didn't watch television and never went to the movies. Silly, silly me!
