Warner Bros. has released the first look at IMTA Alum Elijah Wood as Frodo Baggins in the highly anticipated feature film, The Hobbit!
Elijah got his start at IMTA in 1989 when he caught the eye of 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!
IMTA INSIDER SCOOP: We'll never forget Elijah's performance during the Talent Showcase when he forgot a few of the words to the song he was singing, Don't Worry Be Happy. He did an impromptu duet with our emcee Russ Fega that had the whole crowd rooting for him. The entire Talent Showcase audience was charmed by his ability to recover. Elijah's song got a huge round of applause!
