Actor Elijah Wood tells Dan Calvisi what he looks for in a script

I’m more interested in being a part of an entire piece that I think is brilliant, even if it’s a small part to play.

Elijah Wood tells me how he looks for a script that would make a great movie rather than just an interesting character. His resume bears this out, as he’s taken roles in a wide range of excellent films, including The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Sin City, Green Street Hooligans, The Ice Storm, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind and 9. He’s now tackling television with the quirky comedy “Wilfred.”

His answer stands out from other celebrities that I’ve asked this question, as most of them said that “character” mattered most.

Good Luck and Happy Writing,

Dan Calvisi

“There is a lot of great advice here…
Most important, as I read Calvisi’s Story Maps,
I was inspired to rethink my current project.
And that’s what it’s all about, right?”
