    Yes, Daniel Radcliffe Knows People Think He Looks Like Elijah Wood, And He Has A Theory About Why

    “The idea of me and Elijah Wood is the same…we don’t actually look that alike."

    The early '00s were a very magical time. The Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises were at the top of the box offices, and life was good.

    As many know, Daniel Radcliffe spent nearly 10 years starring as Harry Potter, while Elijah Wood played Frodo Baggins in the LOTR series.

    Over the years, the two have been met with many comparisons, and people have remarked that they look very alike.

    However, when asked about the similiarities in Wired magazine's "Web’s Most Searched Questions" series, Daniel cleared up the common misconception.

    “The idea of me and Elijah Wood is the same…we don’t actually look that alike," he explained. "But if you imagine all our component parts, we’re just short, pale, blue-eyed, big-eyed, brown-haired people."

    Although he doesn't think they look alike, he'd still love to do a movie with the actor. Maybe they could play brothers!

    “I would love to be in a movie with Elijah Wood. At this point, it feels like it would have to be something that is consciously using the way the world sees us as linked and similar looking," he shared. "I’m very open to pitches. There’s no way you can do that because I’m not on social media, but if it’s good, it’ll get to me.”

    You heard the man! Someone start pitching some ideas! I want this movie greenlit by next summer.
