Elijah Wood is an American actor best known for portraying Frodo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s blockbuster Lord of the Rings film trilogy. In addition to reprising the role in The Hobbit series,
Wood also played Ryan in the FX television comedy Wilfred and voiced Beck in the Disney XD animated television series TRON: Uprising. His first credit was a small part in Back to the Future Part II, Wood’s first major film role was in the ‘Barry Levinson’ historical family drama Avalon. Following that, Wood became an in demand child actor, appearing in a number of major films such as Paradise, Radio Flyer, and The Good Son, in which he co-starred with Macaulay Culkin. This was followed by the first role for
which he received top billing, North. Although the film was widely condemned and a disaster at the box office, Elijah was praised as the only good thing to come out of it.
Wood’s work in Peter Jackson’s film adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, and The Lord of the Rings:
The Return of the King, provided a major boost to his career. The actor followed his work in the astronomically successful trilogy with a broad range of interesting screen roles and voice work,
including a supporting role in Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, as well as the part of a sinister mute sociopath in Sin City. His voice work has been featured in such animated films as Happy Feet and 9, as well as on television series including American Dad! and Robot Chicken. Wood also played Ad-Rock in the Beastie Boys’ comedic video for Beastie Boys: Fight for Your Right Revisited. An avid music fan, Wood founded Simian records and released its first album, New Magnetic Wonder by The Apples in Stereo, in 2007.
Motor City Comic Con’s annual event takes place every May and because of the health restrictions, the 2021 event was moved to October 15-17, 2021. The convention will return to being hosted annually in May, in 2022. Both events will take place at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. The biggest and baddest weekend in Michigan will feature actors from the television, movie, and streaming industry, along with the most creative artists, writers, and comic book creators in the industry.
An added convenience feature this year for guests to avoid the long admission lines, will be RFID wristbands! RFID wristbands are available for purchase and mailed to homes for an additional $15 fee. Fans who purchase these RFID wristbands and have them mailed prior to the con will not have to wait in any lines before entering the convention and get a faster start to their
Motor City Comic Con experience. This option allows guests to skip registration by simply putting on the wristband before entering the show.
