FX’s Wilfred has the funniest pilot I’ve seen since Modern Family, and now the show has signed up another guest star (Chris Klein and Rashida Jones have both signed up for guest roles): Malcolm in the Middle matriarch Jane Kaczmarek.

Kaczmarek (The Simpsons, Raising the Bar) plays a woman who gets into a car accident with Elijah Wood’s character Ryan.

Wilfred is about a suicidal uptight guy played by Wood who suddenly sees his neighbor’s dog as a crude Australian man in a dog suit who urges him to indulge in life’s baser pleasures. FX hasn’t announced a premiere date yet, but the show is expected to launch sometime in June. Here’s the best of the show’s trailers:
