NBC Increases Parenthood’s Season 3 Order

    He also played one of Michael Cera’s friends and fellow band members in “Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist” a couple of years ago.

      And he was in the movie ‘Inkheart’ as well.

      • Summer says:

        Yes! I can’t believe I forgot about that! He also did a movie with Ed Westwick from Gossip Girl some time ago. I wouldn’t really call him a “newcomer” as much as I would someone whose career is still growing.

        • bajingo says:

          Please read the article. It says he is “A RELATIVE NEWCOMER TO TV”; it doesn’t say anything about his film career being new.

          • Summer says:

            I must have glossed over the “to tv” part. Oops. Regardless, I wasn’t being malicious or anything about it.

    A deadbeat (or previously oblivious to the fact his girlfriend is pregnant) dad who wants money is now an old and tired storyline.
    Greedy people who want to benefit financially at another couples desperation for a child has been done to death.

  3. PGP says:

    This show is hands down the best show on TV. I can’t wait to see where this is going!

  4. Bri says:

    Yes! This is the best news that I could hear all day. I’ve been wondering about him ever since he left Life Unexpected. So happy he’s landed a new role.

  5. Charlene O'Brien says:

    This is the best show on TV. I look forward to it every week. Please don’t cancel this. We need more intelligent, thought provoking TV to offset the massive amounts of inane, outright stupid, immature shows that are flooding the programming.
