An 18 year old Frodo was bad enough.. [In reply to] Can't Post

...but 11?

Anyway, both were experienced and critically acclaimed child actors. And both have Frodo's cleft chin, though Wood's is more prominent.

I do think Wood's experience with Ang Lee in the preproduction of The Perfect Storm helped him immensely with LOTR. And then there's those "bright eyes" Frodo had. Still, he did occasionally drift into an American accent.

On the other hand, Radcliffe probably would have made quite an impressive Frodo in his darker moments. However, Radcliffe's difficulties with DCD may have made the grueling 15 month shooting schedule in New Zealand problematical. But he does seem to have the accent down pat. And I do think Radcliffe's manner might have made the Frodo-Sam relationship a bit more like that in the book.

All in all, a toss-up. Under other circumstance we might well be going "Wood as Frodo and Radcliffe as Potter? Nahh!!!!"

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Sometime hours and hours hence:
In The Green Dragon two ales could buy
And drank the one less filling I
And that has made all the difference.
