TVLine Items: Angie Tribeca Casts Dad, Atlanta Star Hits HTGAWM and More

Rashida Jones is getting a new pops.

Ernie Hudson will guest-star during Season 3 of Angie Tribeca as the father of Jones’ titular character, our sister site Deadline reports.

Three years ago, it was reported that Jones’ real-life mom and dad would play her TV parents on the TBS comedy. Peggy Lipton indeed showed up as Angie’s mother, but Quincy Jones’ casting apparently never came to be.

Hudson next stars in Fox’s upcoming drama series APB. His past TV credits include a guest spot on Once Upon a Time as King Poseidon and recurring gigs on Grace and Frankie, Modern Family and Franklin & Bash.

    Ernie Hudson was great in movies such as Ghostbusters and The Crow (RIP Brandon Lee).

    I’m so glad that HBO is airing Gethard’s special for those of us who couldn’t make it down to NYC. Here’s hoping that CraveTV gets it up in Canada.
