Lord of the Rings actor Elijah Wood has signed on to feature in a new American remake of Australian TV series Wilfred.
The move marks the first feature role for Wood on television.
The series is written by Family Guy and American Dad scribe David Zuckerman who also serves as executive producer. He describes the series as a comedy “about a guy (Wood), the girl next door and a mixed-breed dog, Wilfred, who is part Labrador Retriever and part Russell Crowe on a bender.”
Joining Wood in the remake is Jason Gann who featured in the original series playing the titular character. Wood’s character is called Ryan.
