Elijah Wood is set to star opposite of Jason Gann in the FX comedy pilot Wilfred, which is based on an Australian series of the same title, says The Hollywood Reporter. It will be the Lord of the Rings and Sin City actor's first starring role on the small screen in a serial. He will play Ryan, while Gann, who created and stars in the Australian version, will lay the titular character.
The series is a comedy that has been described as being "about Ryan, the girl next door and a mixed-breed dog, Wilfred, who is part Labrador Retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender." Um, okay. Shooting is slated for this summer.
Would you watch this series? Sounds a bit weird.
