The FX comedy "Wilfred" has cast Mary Steenburgen to play Elijah Wood’s mother on the show, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.
The Oscar winner will play the mom of Ryan, Wood’s character, who forms an odd relationship with his neighbor’s dog. While other people see a dog, Ryan sees him as a man wearing a dog suit, the story says.
The project is based on an Australian series with the same name.
Steenburgen won an Academy Award in 1981 for “Melvin and Howard.”
