Sources confirm to me exclusively that Steven Weber is joining the cast of Parenthood as a potential love interest for Lauren Graham’s lovelorn single mom.
Weber will play Jack Kraft, a charismatic artistic director of the Berkeley Theater Company who crosses paths with Sarah when her play is submitted to his New Voices reading series.
The Wings actor will debut in the NBC drama’s April 19 season finale, and I hear there’s a chance he’ll return in the fall on a recurring basis.
Of course, that’s provided Parenthood is back next fall. (Fingers crossed.)
Weber, meanwhile, is awaiting word on the fate of his untitled TNT drama pilot with D.L. Hughley.
