Elijah Wood Joins Cast of BBC’s Dirk Gently Adaptation


BBC America is adaption Douglas Adams’ Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency into a eight-episode series. Deadline is reporting Elijah Wood will be  co-starring in the role of Gently’s reluctant assistant, Todd. The site describes Todd’s character:

“Todd does not consider himself a sidekick. He is just flat out better than Dirk at a lot of things. He always attempts to solve matters with the fewest steps possible; despite being a compassionate, sweet, smarter-than-average man with biting wit, Todd often finds himself at the intersection of morally gray crossroads. Thus, his bad habits of lying and stealing have dire consequences that he can’t put off forever, even though he tries.”

The project is being written by Max Landis and co-produced by AMC Studios, Ideate Media, Circle of Confusion and IDW Entertainment America. The adaptation will air on BBC America in the US. Stay tuned, kids…
