In Season 1, Todd Brotzman was a man running on fumes, long ago having been trapped in a life he hated by a series of selfish decisions of his own making. However, after meeting Dirk Gently, their adventures showed him glimpses of a world more bizarre, complex, and fascinating than he ever could’ve imagined, leading him to own up to his past mistakes and work towards redemption. When we reunite with Todd, he’s on the run, wracked with pararibulitis attacks and desperate to find his sister, Amanda. He’s drawn into another one of Dirk’s cases, but this time Todd is swayed to his thinking… they must follow the clues, and if the universe leads them to Amanda, the universe will lead them to Amanda.
Widely regarded as one of the most gifted actors of his generation, Elijah Wood continues to challenge himself with roles spanning the spectrum of style and genre. He was last seen on television in the fourth and final season of the comedy Wilfred; the U.S remake of the Australia hit sitcom was adapted by Family Guy vet David Zuckerman and revolved around a guy (Wood), a girl, and a mixed-breed dog named Wilfred, which Zuckerman describes as part Labrador retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender. The show’s final episode aired on August 13, 2014.
Wood also lent his voice to a 10-episode animated miniseries Over the Garden Wall. The Emmy-nominated series was created by Patrick McHale and centered around two brothers who travel through a forest in order to find their way home. The show ran for five consecutive nights.
Wood made an indelible mark in the trilogy of films based on J.R.R. Tolkein's The Lord of the Rings in the lead role of the hobbit, 'Frodo Baggins.' Directed by Peter Jackson, the films; The Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers, and Return of the King were all critically lauded as well as being box office record setters. In addition, Return of the King won the Academy Award for Best Picture as well as 11 Academy Awards in all, tying Titanic for the record.
In his spare time, Elijah, alongside his longtime friend, Zach Cowie, tour the U.S. spinning records under the name Wooden Wisdom.
Wood currently resides in LA.
