Parenthood Scoop: Black Donnellys' Jonathan Tucker Cast as Amber and Kristina's New Boss!

Is Amber about to mix politics and pleasure?

That’s my guess in light of the news that Parenthood has cast Black Donnellys alum Jonathan Tucker in the recurring role of Bob Little, a “frighteningly young and attractive” political candidate for whom Amber (Mae Whitman) and Kristina (Monica Potter) go to work.

Kristina’s former intern, Bob hires the harried wife and mother-of-three to run his campaign. Kristina, in turn, hires Amber to assist her.

An outgoing man who appreciates the enthusiasm of
 others, Bob is a candidate who inspires confidence on sight. Whether he inspires Amber to make googly eyes at him remains to be seen.

Tucker, whose recent TV credits include guest stints on White Collar, Criminal Minds and Royal Pains, debuts in this season’s 11th episode, airing in early ’12.
