Dyer Slams 'Hobbit' Wood

Gritty British actor DANNY DYER has hit out at ELIJAH WOOD's efforts to play a soccer hooligan in GREEN STREET, insisting the diminutive star should stick to playing hobbits.

Dyer, who starred in rival yob movie THE FOOTBALL FACTORY, slams the LORD OF THE RING actor's appearance as a gang member as totally miscast.

He says of the critically panned film, "It was a pile of rubbish, absolute s**t, which pleased me because they had such a big budget and I would have been gutted if it had been better than The Football Factory.

"But how can you have Elijah Wood - a f**king hobbit - playing a football hooligan? He's four foot with a nice little baby face."

I have to say that all the bad comments about Danny Dyer are a lot of s**t. He is more talented than Elijah Wood and Danny is 100% right in what he said. Wood was not suited to the roll he played and before you all start yes, I did see the film and I do understand what it was about. I have seen just about everything Danny has been in apart from being very good looking an sexy he is a very talented actor who will be around for a long time and should get more recognition what what he has done. I do hope you read these comments and it would be nice if you could reply through my email address or phoneodonnellfiona@yahoo.co.uk01560322182.I was staying in East London until last year. It is just a pity i never got to meet you. Keep up the good work Danny.

I think Danny Dyer and others who think Elijah Wood wasn't right for playing a hooligan don't understand the storyline. Where would be the plot if a person who could easily be seen as a hooligan became one? Because Elijah Wood's character is a small, bookish American and is ignorant of the hooligan lifestyle, yet he is attracted to it, we can see that some of the elements of that lifestyle are attractive, in much the same way that gangs elsewhere attract people who are looking for a place to fit in, are looking for a family, of sorts.

What is your problem Dyer?! You obviously missed the whole point of this movie! Have you even seen the movie?! You shouldn't be allowed to this GREAT movie anyway, cause apparently you are a little too immature! You know what I think is rubbish? Your inability to open your eyes!

OHMIGOD!!! Did anyone of you know who Ewan Mcgregor was before Trainspotting. Dyer is an up and comer, give him a break. Human Traffic anyone - a ground breaking film and also a cult classic. Oh and the Business - double yourselves away to the nearest Blockbuster's and have a crack. Knobheads!!!

Just who are you anyway? I'm British and I have never heard of you. I don't think you will increase either your fame or your popularity by slagging off other actors in this way.

Danny Dyer is a LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!! I don't know anyone who thought a Wood was cast right in that film! There is no need to be so rude about Dyer, I have nothing against Wood at all but Dyer is right. Lets face it Jude Law was no Michael Caine when they did Alfie. Leave s**t alone unless your Nick Love!!!!
