Elijah Wood Returns To The Shire In The Hobbit

frodo_225.jpgYou just can't keep a good halfling down. Unhampered by the fact that his character, Frodo, does not appear in the book, Elijah Wood has confirmed that he will be appearing in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit. Also joining him in the "Hey Remember Us, You Really Liked Us In The First Movies, Come See This One Too" Tour are Cate Blanchett's Galadriel and, allegedly, Orlando Bloom's Legolas. Those two have the advantage of being immortal elves, though; I'm not sure how Frodo will be appearing before he's born. Flash-forward? Flashback? Flash-sideways that will turn out to be some type of Hobbitty purgatory? Who knows! [Deadline]
