Wood turns into Lord of the Spins

Elijah Wood has shown he has decks appeal as he swaps the big screen for the turntable.

The Lord Of The Rings star is set to perform a DJ set with friend Zach Cowie, under the name of Wooden Wisdom, at Bushmills Live - a hand-crafted whiskey and music festival taking place at the Old Bushmills Distillery in Ireland on June 20 and 21.

While the duo have spun the decks in the past, this will be the first time they are performing together outside of the US.

Snow Patrol, Iain Archer and Foy Vance will be performing at the festival, which is held at the home of the Irish whiskey in county Antrim.

Bushmills master distiller Colum Egan said: "I am really looking forward to welcoming Elijah to the Old Bushmills Distillery. He is a great actor and DJ and I have already seen him perform at a fantastic Bushmills party in Los Angeles."

Elijah, who has founded his own record label Simian Records and has previously lent his support to the whiskey brand, will next be seen in Peter Jackson's two-part prequel, The Hobbit, in which he is set to reprise his role as Frodo Baggins.
