Wilfred" is a series about Ryan (Elijah Wood) a man struggling to make his own way in the world when he meets a unique friend named Wilfred (Jason Gann), his neighbor's canine pet. Whereas everyone see Wilfred as just a dog, Ryan sees him a cruel and surly Australian guy in a dog suit. Together Wilfred and Ryan go on adventures and Wilfred teaches Ryan how to overcome his fears and simply embrace the challenges that come his way no matter how insane it is around him at the time.
Widely regarded as one of the most gifted actors of his generation, Elijah Wood continues to challenge himself with roles spanning the spectrum of style and genre.
This summer, Wood has begun production of “Pawn Shop Chronicles,” an action/comedy film written by Adam Miarovich and directed by Wayne Kramer. The story begins with a missing wedding ring which leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator. The movie is currently shooting in Baton Rouge, New Orleans and is set for a 2013 release date.
Wood returns for a 2nd season of the hit FX comedy "Wilfred" on June 28, 2012. The show is a U.S. remake of the Australia hit sitcom which was adapted by “Family Guy” vet David Zuckerman and revolves around a guy (Wood), a girl, and a mixed-breed dog named Wilfred, which Zuckerman describes as part Labrador retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender.
