The buzz about his weekend at the
Coachella Music Festival
was all about the holographic resurrection of Tupac Shakur. Elijah Wood, a huge music buff who often DJs at local clubs, thinks it was a cool festival stunt, but the thought of regularly taking dead stars on tour is totally “fucked”.
“It brings up all sorts of ethical issues,” he says. “It is a little bit creepy. I don’t know that I’d want to show up and see John Lennon be a hologram. I think we need to be careful about how we use the image of the deceased.” Wood, 31, takes a final drag on his cigarette.
If you’ve ever seen Wood in
, one of TV’s most surreal comedies ever, you quickly realize there’s a lot more to this guy than Frodo, the life-changing role he played in the three
Lord of the Rings
films, and which he is reprising for
, a two-part film. (
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
is set for release on December 14, and part two,
The Hobbit: There and Back Again
is expected to premiere in December 2013.)
