Iggy Pop backs Elijah Wood

Iggy Pop has backed Elijah Wood’s credentials to play him in an upcoming biopic on the rock legend. Rumors about a movie following the life and times of the Stooges icon have been rife for some months, with the Lord Of The Rings star tipped to play the lead role.

However, Iggy has revealed there are no concrete plans for the film, days after the Stooges played an acclaimed Saturday evening slot at Britain’s Glastonbury Festival.

“We have no agreement yet to even do the film. The producers have got big mouths and keep jumping the gun,” Pop told XFM.

However, he continued: “I think Elijah [Wood]’s a very good actor though. If he can play a hobbit then he should be able to play me.”
