Elijah Wood’s DJ Name Is Not DJ Frodo, Which Is a Wild Misunderstanding of His Own Brand and DJs

By

If you spent a over year crouched next to Sir Ian McKellen with faux fur glued to your feet, most people would think you’ve earned the right to be a little goofy. But as he established while promoting his new show Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency last night on Late Night, Elijah Wood turns up his nose at the very idea he would name his DJ side business after his most famous role. Wood is, in fact, very, very, very serious about the '70s Turkish music he spins on vinyl at parties he is consequently asked to leave. Meanwhile, Samwise has been DJ-ing bar mitzvahs under his own name for years, and everybody absolutely loves it.
