Elijah Wood Cast as Iggy Pop in Upcoming Bio

I just read at Punk Music that actor Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings) has been cast to play Iggy Pop in a new biopic film scheduled to shoot sometime this year. I'm not too excited about this casting choice, but when talking to a friend of mine, I wasn't able to think of someone I would like better to play Iggy. So, Elijah Wood it is. He said about the role, "I'm scared to death of doing it, because I love him (Iggy Pop) so much and I respect the music so much. I don't want to be the person responsible for screwing that up."

Here is a video I found of Iggy back in 1977 performing "The Passenger."

  2. Apparently Iggy isn't thrille with Elijah Wood playing him - he won't have anything to do with production of the film.
