Elijah Wood Joins 'Wilfred' on FX

Elijah Wood is set to hit the small screen in a remake of the Australian sitcom Wilfred.

The 29-year-old actor will star in the FX show opposite a female character and a mixed-breed dog named Wilfred.

Family Guy alum David Zuckerman, who’s adapting the show for American audiences, told EW that Wilfred is “part Labrador retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender.”

Elijah will also hit the big screen this fall in The Romantics opposite Katie Holmes and Josh Duhamel.

    I forget u so cute

  • Elijah is still awesome

    I love how successful he’s been since LOTR. I have great respect for his fellow hobbit co-stars and I’m sorry some of their careers haven’t been good. :(

  • Butter_Fly

    I agree #3! I’ve always been an Elijah fan!

  • Ali

    is something wrong with his eyes, or his health? why do his eyes look so odd?

  • RB

    he needs to be cast in more things hes getting older and his resume is not stacking up in a more mature way the way it needs to as an actor ages. I hope he finds something that eclipses Lord of The Rings

  • LNC

    I’m shocked that he is doing TV, but I love him and I’ll watch.

  • forever56

    Elijah is better than this. He is a phenomenal actor. it’s hard though landing other parts in movies when people know he already as the main character in a huge trilogy.

  • athena

    yeah Elijah…good to see you back around the circuit.

  • scottishrugby

    DO you all realize how huge this show could be if the americans do it right. have any of you actually seen wifred. its the funniest show. and i only hope that the americans don’t ruin it.

  • Sidney

    @forever56: EXACTLY! He’s waaaayy too good for this. What the heck, man? Everyone seems to think he’s very intelligent so we’re going to have to trust that he’s been shown something that’s given him confidence that this is a good idea even though it looks crazy from where I’m sitting… on the couch.

  • Nikki

    @Ali: Did u ever find the answer to this question? Is it part of his make-up for Wilfred? The darkness under his eyes makes him look especially ill.

    Great actor – hope his health isn’t failing.
