Exclusive Parenthood First Look: Friday Night Lights' Matt Lauria Joins the Braverman Clan!

Matt Lauria makes his much-anticipated Parenthood debut next Tuesday (NBC, 10/9c), and we have your exclusive first look at the Friday Night Lights grad seamlessly finding his place among the Bravermans.

The following shots — from his second episode, airing Oct. 9 — seem to reveal that the close-knit clan wastes little time welcoming Lauria’s Ryan into the fold. As TVLine first reported, the actor joins the beloved drama’s Season 4 as a soldier formerly stationed in Afghanistan who strikes up an unlikely friendship with fellow war vet Zeek (Craig T. Nelson).
