Fall TV Preview

Parenthood Plots Love Triangle With Buffy Vet, Plus a Baby-Bumpin' Season 3 Promo

But what about Crosby?!

D.B. Woodside — who is arguably best known as Sunnydale High’s badass principal on Buffy the Vampire Slayer — has booked a five-episode arc on NBC’s Parenthood this fall as a love interest for Jasmine.

TVLine has confirmed that the actor — most recently seen on The CW’s Hellcats and also familiar from a 24 presidential run– will play Joseph Prestidge, an Ivy League-educated doctor who takes a vested interest in Joy Bryant’s dancing beauty.

This casting news — first reported by The Hollywood Reporter — of course hints that Jasmine and Crosby’s happyish ending in the Season 2 finale didn’t necessarily lead to a rock-solid reunion. But given the limited scope of Woodside’s guest arc — which begins with this cycle’s third episode — we’re guessing it’s nothing more than a fling.

NBC has also released the first promo for Parenthood Season 3, and Kristina, thanks to a time jump, is looking very preggo. Take a peek below, and don’t miss the premiere Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 10/9c.
