IMTA's Elijah Wood Stars in television series Wilfred!

IMTA alum Elijah Wood has a new show airing tonight called Wilfred. In this new comedy series airing on FX Elijah plays Ryan. According to FX's official site, "Wilfred is a half-hour, live-action comedy about 'Ryan,' a young man struggling unsuccessfully to make his way in the world until he forms a unique friendship with 'Wilfred,' his neighbor’s canine pet. Everyone else sees Wilfred as just a dog, but Ryan sees a crude and somewhat surly, yet irrepressibly brave and honest, Australian bloke in a cheap dog suit. While leading him through a series of comedic and existential adventures, Wilfred the dog shows Ryan the man how to overcome his fears and joyfully embrace the unpredictability and insanity of the world around him."

Elijah attended IMTA in 1989 where he impressed casting directors, managers and agents looking for new talent. He is best known for his role in the Lord of the Rings film series. Elijah is currently working on The Hobbit: Part 1 and 2 and as a voice in TRON: Uprising . His movie Happy Feet Two in 3D is set for release in November of this year.

Be sure to tune in tonight to watch Elijah's wonderful and interesting new show!
