Daniel Radcliffe or Elijah Wood? It's actually both.

Pictures showing Daniel Radcliffe and Elijah Wood's faces merging have been circulating online, prompting a wave of jokes about whether the actors are actually the same person.

An animated gif morphing the strikingly similar pair into each other was posted on imgur recently and has clocked up over 9 million views, prompting the creation of similar images.

By Gandalf's beard, it appears Harry Potter and Frodo are indeed one and the same -- what dark magic of Voldemort is this?

American Lord of the Rings star Wood in 1981, while British Harry Potter star Radcliffe was born in 1989. Wood is also taller than Radcliffe by a whole inch -- 5"6 (167.6cm) versus 5"5 (65.1cm).

But there's no mistaking the uncanny resemblance the blue-eyed, slightly built, fair of skin and floppily haired men have with each other.

Radcliffe addressed his similarity to Wood on the WTF Podcast last year, admitting: "The idea of us is the same.

"We're both kind of short guys with big blue eyes and brown hair. And we did fantasy movies that came out at the same time."

Wood has also told late night TV host Seth Meyers that he was mistaken for Radcliffe in an elevator.
