The roller coaster ride for Hope Solo on "Dancing With the Stars" has finally come to an end.
The soccer star, whose run on the show was marred by frequent disputes with both pro partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy and the judging panel, was eliminated last night from the ABC competition series.
Solo, the ninth celebrity eliminated from the show, struggled with a paso doble during Monday's performance, then finished last in a four-couple cha-cha relay.
Now that production has started on Peter Jackson’s highly anticipated “Lord of the Rings” prequels, star Elijah Wood is giving E! News some info on “The Hobbit.”
"They're gonna be big,” Elijah said Sunday of the two upcoming flicks, titled “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” and “The Hobbit: There and Back Again.” “The audience is huge. The anticipation for ‘The Hobbit’ has been so massive for so long."
Just how massive? The three “Lord of the Rings” movies grossed almost $3 billion worldwide, but Wood, 30, says he doesn’t see it as a competition. "I don't even know if they're meaning to outdo them," the actor says of the prequels.
