Lord of the Dead Ringers

Tobey Maguire in the Spider-Man 3 Trailer

It is easy to confuse Elijah Wood with Tobey Maguire, they look so much alike. But wtf is up with these two virtually identical shots, one from Spider-Man 3 and the other from Lord of the Rings?

I ask because the striking similarity between the two actors plays an important part in the plot of my Taglit-birthright israel cartoon trilogy, beginning with the Passover special, Elijah the Prophet. I thought I was creating a fictional rivalry, in which a beleaguered Maguire resents being constantly confused with his top billing doppelganger, Elijah Wood. But is Tobey actually jealous of Elijah in real life, so much so that he insisted on recreating Wood's famous "reach for the ring" scene with a ring reach of his own?


You be the judge.

hmm...I think that they both resemble bronze statues. Except the fact that Elijah is distantly related to a chipmunk contributes to his crooked teeth. Blech.
