You're right, sorry. Although a quick Google search suggests I'm not the first person to get Elijah Wood confused with Tobey Maguire ;)

Elijah Wood has not been anywhere near the Spider-Man franchise... You could've picked Lord of the Rings, Happy Feet or even FLIPPER and it would've been accurate. It doesn't take more than 10-15 seconds to ctrl+f imdb to see if you're right. XD
