Elijah Jordan Wood is an American actor. After his high-profile role as Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings trilogy, he has resisted typecasting by choosing varied roles in critically-acclaimed films such as Bobby, The Good Son, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Sin City, Green Street, Day Zero, the voice of Mumble, in Happy Feet and the voice for the character of Sigma in the internet web series Red Vs Blue.
Wood appeared as himself auditioning for Brian Griffin's new TV show, tentatively titled What I Learned On Jefferson Street in "Brian Griffin's House of Payne". Brian intended for him to play the lead male role, a single father named Byron, believing he'd be perfect for the role. However, at CBS's discretion, the role went to James Woods.
