Smallville Alum Allison Mack to Visit ‘Wilfred’

After spending nearly 10 seasons on the long-running series ‘Smallville’, actress Allison mack will get to stretch her comedic side with a recurring role in the FX comedy Wilfred. Mack will play an attractive and edgy biochemist who will be the new love interest of Ryan (Elijah Wood), who – as fans of the show know – has an unusual relationship with his neighbor’s dog (Jason Gann). You see only Ryan sees Wilfred as a human being and not a dog.

The folks over at Deadline broke the news yesterday that Mack would be making her first television appearance since ‘Smallville’. She has been keeping herself busy, though, focusing on theater, workshopping the Bobby Lopez musical ‘Up Here’ with Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) and starring in some off-Broadway productions as well as participating in The Public Theatre’s Shakespeare Lab.

‘Wilfred’ is scheduled to return for its second season on FX on June 28.
