NEW YORK (AP) - Elijah Wood’s latest acting gig is ridiculous, and he’s OK with that.

The actor stars in the new FX show “Wilfred,” playing a depressed guy named Ryan who is on the verge of suicide. He finds a new zest for life while hanging out with his neighbor’s dog Wilfred _ who appears to Ryan as a cigarette-smoking man in a dog suit.

Wood says he would sometimes step back and wonder about the “total madness” they were creating, calling it “so much fun.”

The show, based on a hit comedy in Australia, had 2.6 million viewers in its June 23 premiere. That’s the best ratings FX has ever had for a comedy.
