Parenthood Exclusive: Dexter Grad Courtney Ford Makes a Play For Crosby

A Crosby-Jasmine reunion is suddenly looking a lot less likely this season on Parenthood.

Dexter and True Blood alum Courtney Ford is joining NBC’s sublime family drama as a new love interest for Dax Shepard’s bachelor.

Her character, Lily, is an accomplished cello player who starts renting time at Crosby and Adam’s recording studio. Described as down-to-earth and wry-humored, Lily begins to connect with Crosby despite an inauspicious first meeting.

Ford — who last month guest-starred as a comic book nerd on The Big Bang Theory — will debut in January and recur through the remainder of Parenthood‘s way-too-short third season, which concludes on Feb. 28.
