Frodo Baggins, meet Ace Ventura. ”Lord of the Rings” star Elijah Wood has signed on to costar with Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet in the surreal comedy ”Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” according to Variety. Wood joins a cast that also includes Kirsten Dunst, Tom Wilkinson, and Mark Ruffalo.

The movie, to be directed by Michel Gondry (”Human Nature”), was written by Charlie Kaufman, whose ”Adaptation” script just scored a Golden Globe nomination. In the film, Carrey and Winslet play a couple who try to rescue their relationship by having uncomfortable memories erased from their brains. Wood will play one of the technicians who perform said erasure, according to Variety.
