Elijah Wood Interview About Wilfred, The Hobbit, and Lost

Elijah Wood Talks Moving to TV and His LOTR Reunion For The Hobbit

Elijah Wood has spent time on the silver screen since he was just a toddler, but the actor is moving to television with his FX series, Wilfred. If seeing big names on the small screen doesn't do it for you, rest assured: Wood isn't giving up being a movie star, especially now that he's set to reprise his role of Frodo Baggins in The Hobbit. I caught up with the actor at the Fox TCA party, where he dished on his new gig and heading back to New Zealand to step back into those furry hobbit feet.

BuzzSugar: Why did you want to make the move to TV?
Elijah Wood: It was this particular project. I just loved it; I loved the pilot script, it made me laugh. I thought it was different than anything I'd ever read or seen on television before. But I was also interested in television — I started reading television scripts a lot this year. I'm a huge fan of TV. TV has really opened up in an interesting way in the last five years with incredible filmmakers and wonderful actors have come to TV to explore really great storytelling and incredible characters. I also loved the idea of doing comedy.

Buzz: Were you a fan of the original Wilfred?
EW: I wasn't actually familiar with the show until I read the pilot.

Buzz: You just signed on for The Hobbit; how did that all go down?
EW: They had mentioned it to me a little while ago as kind of an idea of what they were thinking about. But I got the offer, and I jumped at the chance to be a part of it. It's been 11 years since I went to New Zealand for the first time; it's hard to imagine. It's an opportunity to go back and experience a very similar, beautiful reunion with everyone.

Buzz: Are you still friends with your Lord of the Rings costars?
EW: Yeah, a lot of people, yeah, [like] Billy Boyd, I was just at his wedding in Scotland. There were just a few of us; Dominic Monaghan was there.

Buzz: What shows do you watch?
EW: I love everything that AMC does. I'm a huge Breaking Bad fan, Mad Men is amazing. I love True Blood. I love all the stuff that HBO does.

Buzz: Were you a Lost fan?
EW: Oh, yeah.

Buzz: Were you sad when it ended?
EW: No; I think it was good, I think it was time. It was six seasons, right? Six seasons of being compounded and having our minds constantly tricked. It was fitting that it was coming to an end. I don't think anybody could have handled another season.
