From Hobbit to Hot Beats: Introducing DJ Elijah Wood

by Clubplanet

Take a moment to think about all the Hollywood actors that have ventured to the dark side of actor turned “musician”. Too many to count right? Well, just when you thought there couldn’t be another thespian looking to explore their rockstar dreams, here comes Elijah Wood. DJ Elijah Wood has been playing a few small gigs around town and most recently played a show at the legendary Amoebe Music on Hollywood and Vine.

Before you pass judgment (though no one would blame you) you should know that DJ E.Wood owns a record label and has had his fair share of musician/actor run ins to turn even him sour about the whole "actor with musical dreams" trend. In 2003 Elijah Wood recalled an incident to Blender Magazine about a particularly prickly encounter with actor/30 Seconds to Mars front man, Jared Leto, when Elijah made it pretty clear to Leto that he wasn’t feeling the music Leto was creating. Instead of taking it in stride, Leto went all actor diva, grabbed Wood and verbally berated him. But it seems that this incident didn’t faze Wood, who later told Blender, "I would never try to be like other actors and attempt to make (music) myself. I mean, have you heard 30 Seconds to Mars? ... F---ing awful, man!" Now that’s the perfect rock star attitude!
