HAPPY FEET TWO

ELIJAH WOOD (Mumble) returns to the role he made popular in George Miller's Academy Award®-winning hit "Happy Feet.”

Wood starred in the trilogy of films based on The Lord of the Rings novels by J.R.R. Tolkien, in the lead role of Frodo Baggins. Directed by Peter Jackson, the films "The Fellowship of the Ring,” "The Two Towers” and "The Return of the King” became worldwide blockbusters and, in 2004, "The Return of the King” won 11 Academy Awards®, including one for Best Picture. He reprises the role of Frodo in Peter Jacksons "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which will be in theaters December 14, 2012, and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” slated for release in 2013.

This past summer, Wood made his TV series debut in David Zuckerman's U.S. remake of the Australian hit sitcom "Wilfred," which premiered to record numbers for a comedy on FX. The show revolves around Wood, a girl and a mixed-breed dog named Wilfred. The second season is slated to begin production in March 2012.

He has completed production on Stewart Harcourt's adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's "Treasure Island," playing Ben Gunn alongside Eddie Izzard and Donald Sutherland. Produced by Alan Moloney, with Steve Barron directing, the two-part, four-hour miniseries airs on the UK's SKY TV and the SyFy channel in the U.S. in 2012. Wood can also be seen in Adam Yauch's short "Fight for your Right Revisited,” starring John C. Reilly and Seth Rogen, which premiered at Sundance this year. Wood recently appeared alongside Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg in the romantic comedy "Celeste and Jesse Forever," penned by Jones and Will McCormick. The movie follows a couple in the midst of a divorce who are attempting to maintain their friendship while pursuing new relationships.

Among his many additional film credits are "The Romantics,” alongside Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel and Anna Paquin; "The Oxford Murders,” opposite John Hurt; "Paris, Je'Taime”; "Day Zero”; Emilio Estevez's drama "Bobby”; Liev Schreiber's "Everything is Illuminated”; Michel Gondry's critically acclaimed "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind”; Lexi Alexander's "Green Street Hooligans”; Frank Miller's "Sin City,” directed by Robert Rodriguez and Miller; Ang Lee's "The Ice Storm”; Martin Duffy's independent film "The Bumblebee Flies Away”; Jeffrey Porter's "Try Seventeen”; "Ash Wednesday”; and James Toback's "Black and White.” He also lent his voice to "9.”

Wood is an active member and supporter of The Art of Elysium, a non profit organization founded in 1997, which encourages artists of all walks to participate in artistic workshops for children battling serious medical conditions.
