lotr cameos

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: elijah wood appeared in one of the most ambitious film projects ever undertaken, having starred in all three movies of the lord of the rings trilogy, including "return of the king", which won 11 total academy awards including best picture. however, despite the massive and relatively unprecedented success of these films, why is it that the first film elijah appeared in after lotr was a cameo in, of all movies, spy kids 3: game over? what's even more confusing is that he plays a character named only "The Guy". more so, while "The Guy" is the only player to ever beat level 5, how is it possible that a single lightning strike took all 100 of his lives? why did elijah go from international acclaim to easily defeated legend of a virtual reality game? how do you die 100 times at once?
