Sure, actors Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood may look similar and have respectively starred in major blockbuster fantasy films, but they are not the same person.

However, a lot of moviegoers were convinced for a while now that the two are nearly identical.

Their uncanny resemblance is often the subject of a long-running joke, and both actors have even commented on it.


Radcliffe, best known for his work in the Harry Potter films as the boy wizard, answered a fan question while playing with adorable puppies in a Buzzfeed Celeb segment on October 5.

The 29-year-old actor was asked when he would star in a movie opposite his supposed doppleganger – Elijah Wood.

The fan asked a question most fans were wanting to know: "When are you and Elijah Wood finally going to do a project about brothers or mistaken identity?"

Radcliffe seemed game to take on such a film and encouraged the fan to pen the script for him.

"I would love to do something with Elijah Wood where we play brothers. I don't know if he'd be up for it, but I can only speak for myself—I'm on board. Whoever wrote the question, you go write the script."

Wood, who played Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, responded after Buzzfeed posted Radcliffe's reaction on Twitter.


"Totally down for a duo flick!," said the 37-year-old actor. His comment drove fans absolutely bonkers over the prospect of Radcliffe and Wood playing brothers.

Many fans wondered why Radcliffe and Wood haven't capitalized on their likeness by playing brothers in a movie already.


@littlegoldmen I know this is not an original idea, but why has it taken so long for Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe to play brothers on screen?pic.twitter.com/0YQtZE5YOv

Hello Giggles shared a funny anecdote from Radcliffe that was featured on a Reddit thread from 2015.

The actor, who branched out into performing on Broadway in 2007 to critical acclaim with Equus, said that he once signed a photograph of Elijah Wood at a red carpet event after a fan mistook him for the Lord of the Rings actor.

"I have signed a picture of Elijah Wood–and I think we've both said in interviews that we would like to play each other in films of our lives–but I was on a red carpet in Japan, and this Japanese man gave me a picture of Elijah, and I knew I wasn't going to get past the language barrier to explain, so I wrote 'I am not Elijah Wood, signed Daniel Radcliffe."

Make no mistake, these fine actors are different people. Or are they?

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
