Chris Klein Cast in FX’s WILFRED

Chris Klein (American Pie) has signed onto the new FX comedy WILFRED for multiple episodes, according to TVLine.

Wilfred follows Ryan (Elijah Wood), a shy man who begins to come out of his shell after meeting Wilfred, whom most of the world sees as the dog belonging to Ryan’s neighbor Jenna (Fiona Gubelmann). To Ryan, though, Wilfred is a man in a dog suit who becomes his alter-ego. Klein will be playing a love interest for Jenna.

Wilfred is based on the critically-acclaimed same-titled Australian sitcom and Jason Gann, who portrayed Wilfred in the original series, is reprising his role for the FX version.

Klein guest-starred in The Good Guys last fall and previously starred in the short-lived comedy Welcome to the Captain.

FX has ordered thirteen episodes of Wilfred and the series is set to premiere in June.
