Elijah Wood is ready to be the saucy gay friend.
That's how The Hollywood Reporter describes the "Lord of the Rings" star's role in "Celeste and Jesse Forever," the romantic comedy starring Rashida Jones and Andy Samberg. Wood will be playing Jones' metrosexual business partner (yeah, we can see it).
"Celeste and Jesse Forever" chronicles a couple (Jones and Samberg) in the midst of a divorce attempting to maintain their friendship while pursuing new relationships.
Elijah Wood joins a cast that includes Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina. Lee Toland Krieger is directing the script by Jones and Will McCormack, which the "Parks and Recreation" beauty describes as "When Harry Met Sally," but "20 years later."
There hasn't been enough of Frodo since the "Lord of the Rings" days, though he looks to be getting pretty busy. His first TV series, "Wilfred," premieres on FX on June 23, and he'll be voicing a lead role in Disney's upcoming animated series, "TRON: Uprising." He's also set to play Ben Gunn in a new TV movie of "Treasure Island" and will be reprising his role of Mumble in "Happy Feet Two," opening Nov. 18.
And yeah, he'll be in "The Hobbit." Awesome.
