Elijah Wood in Vanidad Magazine!

Check out these new photos of IMTA alum Elijah Wood! They are from his photo shoot in Vanidad Magazine.

Elijah got his start at IMTA in 1989 when he caught the eye of the famed superagent Al Onorato. He moved from Cedar Rapids, Iowa to Los Angeles and booked his first roles in Paula Abdul's memorable video Straight Up and the feature film Back to the Future Part II. Elijah has starred in over 40 feature films in his career and is one of Hollywood's (and IMTA's!) most-loved actors! His film Happy Feet won a BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) Children's Award in London beating Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix! Elijah provides the voice over for the main character Mumble. It also won accolades from audiences worldwide and earned an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature and a Golden Globe for Best Original Song. Elijah's newest animated action adventure film called 9, a post-apocalyptic nightmare in which all of humanity is threatened is due in theaters on September 9.
