Elijah Wood Talks WILFRED Season 3, His Idea of What Wilfred Actually Is, Growing Over the Course of the Series, Trying on the Dog Suit, and More

The FX comedy Wilfred has returned for Season 3, and Ryan (Elijah Wood) is still learning how to overcome his fears and embrace the unpredictability and insanity of the world around him. As Ryan struggles to make his way through life, the one constant is his unique friendship with his neighbor’s canine pet, which he happens to see as a crude Australian (Jason Gann) in a cheap dog suit. During this recent interview to promote the show’s third season, actor Elijah Wood talked about keeping a sense of ambiguity, as to what Wilfred is, that he has his own idea for what Wilfred actually is, how he believes the show has to be resolved or move in a certain direction, at a certain point, how the sense of growth over three seasons helps keep the character fresh for him, his favorite moment from this season, how it’s been harder for him to keep a straight face, the importance of Bear to the story, what it was like to have Lance Reddick (Fringe, The Wire) play Ryan’s therapist, and how he tried on the dog suit for himself, this year. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers. READ MORE...
