Elijah Wood on Nickelodeon's New Show Yo Gabba Gabba!

IMTA alum and superstar Elijah Wood is guest starring on the premiere of Nickelodeon's new funky preschool show called Yo Gabba Gabba. This show is an exciting action packed program for young children featuring a group of furry toy animals and monsters in a make believe land where the play, dance, and learn about life.

Elijah got his start at IMTA in 1989 when he was signed by agent Al Onorato, moved from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Los Angeles and booked his first role in Paula Abdul's memorable video Straight Up. His enormous film career includes such wonderful feature films as Happy Feet, Bobby, Everything is Illuminated, Sin City, Spy Kids 3 Game Over, Day Zero, and the Academy Award-winning trilogy The Lord of the Rings. Elijah has starred in over 40 feature films in his career and is one of young Hollywood's (and IMTA's!) most-loved actors. Elijah just wrapped the thriller The Oxford Murders which features him as a grad student at Oxford University who works with his professor to try and stop a potential series of murders seemingly linked by mathematical symbols. Currently he is doing a voice over for an animated action adventure film called 9, a post-apocalyptic nightmare in which all of humanity is threatened.
