IMTA Alum Elijah Wood recently helped MR PORTER celebrate their 100th issue! Elijah appears in a photo campaign and an interesting short film that is also a shoppable video! In the campaign, Elijah appears in clothing by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry London, Gucci, and Richard James.
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!
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! Russ Fega recently co-hosted for us at IMTA L.A. 2013 and he returned to a warm welcome.
