'Wilfred' Stars Share Season 1 Secrets from One of TV's Quirkiest Shows

by Annette Bourdeau, posted Oct 30th 2011 2:00PM


Jason Gann has just curled up on my lap. I'm not sure why I'm so surprised. He does, after all, play a dog on the popular show 'Wilfred,' co-starring Elijah Wood. Unsure of what to do, I awkwardly pat his head.

"OK, that's enough of that!" he says, and jumps over to his designated chair across from me. The lovely actress who plays Wilfred's owner on the show, Fiona Gubelmann, takes the seat next to him. She looks at Gann, laughs and shakes her head, as Gann is now feigning sleep as he stretches out clumsily on his chair.

'Wilfred' Frolics on the Beach and Even Finds a Pelican (VIDEO)

'Wilfred' - 'Trust'The theme this week on 'Wilfred' (Thu., 10PM ET on FX) was trust. To try and build that bond of trust between himself and Ryan, Wilfred has Ryan take him to a beach. The only problem is no dogs are allowed.

When he finally guilted Ryan into letting him go for a swim, we got another one of those surreal dog--human moments that only this show can create. As Wilfred, Jason Gann looks to us and Ryan like a dude in a dog suit. Everyone else sees him as a dog.

So when he's jumping up and down in the waves, and carrying a dead pelican over to a group of campers, we see Gann. But we have to imagine how this looks if Wilfred really was a dog, and suddenly it looks far more normal.

Elijah Wood & Jason Gann Talk Smoking Pot and Hallucinations on 'Wilfred'

It's safe to say you probably haven't seen another sitcom like 'Wilfred' ... and I mean that in the best way possible.

Elijah Wood stars as a severely depressed guy named Ryan who has very vivid conversations and insane adventures with a dog named Wilfred. The catch: he's the only one who sees the pup as a man in a dog suit. A man in a dog suit who's often smoking massive amounts of pot when he's not digging holes in the backyard, fetching things and trying everything to get Ryan to live a little.

Elijah Wood & Jason Gann in 'Wilfred'

That shaggy fetching man is none other than co-creator Jason Gann, who helmed the short film and Aussie series of the same name and concept before reimagining it for American audiences.

I caught up with Wood and Gann to talk about the show (premieres Thurs., June 23, 10PM ET on FX), the amazing guest stars that came to play and what it is they're really smoking in all those many haze-filled scenes.
