Iowa Star Has Thoughts on Famous Doppleganger, Potential Biopic
Who would you want to play you in a biopic-the big screen story of your life? It's something we've all pondered a time or two in our lives, especially in the last several years with the genre being on the upswing. But we've also likely daydreamed about our favorite celebrities playing our other favorite celebrities.
This was taken to another level recently as an Iowa native admitted in an airport encounter that he still gets mistaken in real life for one of his famous counterparts, years after they both seemingly wrapped up their biggest respective roles.
Cedar Rapids native Elijah Wood gained significant notoriety as Frodo in the "Lord of the Rings" series while Daniel Radcliffe made a name for himself as Harry Potter, both progressing through their trajectories to stardom at roughly the same time. Wood was asked his thoughts, both personally and professionally on Radcliffe--along with another intriguing question. Below is a video of the interview from TMZ.
In short, Wood called Radcliffe a "lovely human being" and said he would be totally down with playing him in a biopic.
While there was no immediate word on whether the admiration was mutual on Radcliffe's part, we've recently seen his seamless ability to abruptly and immediately brush off any danger of typecasting by portraying "Weird" Al Yankovic in the Roku Channel's recent satirical biopic "Weird: The Al Yankovic Story" so we definitely think he could pull it off, beyond just the physical resemblance!
Better yet, let's think joint adaptation with the two playing each other in the same movie! At the very least, a little SNL skit or late-night TV bit. What are your thoughts? Drop us a message in the mobile app. It's free!
