Elijah Lands Iggy Pop Role

THE LORD OF THE RINGS star ELIJAH WOOD has landed the role of a young IGGY POP in a new movie but he's terrified of the prospect of portraying the outrageous punk icon.

Wood will start shooting the top-secret film in 2006 and he admits he's getting more nervous as the start date approaches.

He says, "I'm scared to death of doing it, because I love him (Iggy Pop) so much and I respect the music so much.

"I don't want to be the person responsible for screwing that up."

Then be very, very careful, MR. Elijah Wood. No one is Iggy but Iggy. He is the icon. But at least you show some awareness of this. Now, who ARE you, anyway?
