Parenthood Exclusive: Haddie's New BFF Has a Castle Connection

Parenthood is rounding out Haddie’s (Sarah Ramos) social circle this season.

Up-and-comer Brittany Belt (Castle, The Ex List) has been cast in the recurring role of Emma, one of Haddie’s best friends since 7th grade. Emma feels Haddie’s relationship with Alex (Michael B. Jordan) is preventing her from letting loose and having a memorable senior year.

Belt memorably guest-starred in last season’s late-night-spoofing episode of Castle as the intern shagging Tommy Bergeron’s ill-fated talk show host. She also recurred on The Ex List as the teenage version of Elizabeth Reaser’s Bella.
