Elijah Wood's Favorite Game at QuarterWorld Is Not Lord of the Rings

The actor doesn't even play LOTR pinball, sources say.

If you're playing the Where in Portland is Elijah Wood? game, check off QuarterWorld.

The ex-hobbit, who's in town filming Macon Blair's next film, coincidentally met up at QuarterWorld on Saturday, April 23 with comic Doug Benson, who is doing shows at Helium Comedy Club. Both just happened to show up at the new, 4,000 square foot Mecca of video gaming that recently opened in what used to be the Alhambra Theatre.

Elijah Wood is "more a Super Mario kinda guy," according to a QuarterWorld staffer. But he did pose in front of the LOTR pinball, sporting a stylish cap, jean jacket and respectable amount of flair.

Benson's predilection? The Bally Game Show pinball.
