All Grown Up: 7 Child Actors Who Made It Big
The following seven actors prove that for every Haley Joel Osment who sinks into obscurity and voice acting, there's a Joseph Gordon-Levitt who only gets better with age.
ELIJAH WOOD (b. 1981)
In the early nineties, Elijah Wood made his mark playing precocious progeny opposite Melanie Griffith (Paradise), Mel Gibson (Forever Young), and Kevin Costner (The War). He gained prominence as a lead in North and Green Street Hooligans before joining the big leagues as Frodo Baggins in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Wood's latest work shines in Sin City, Everything Is Illuminated, and this fall's The Romantics.
