TVLine Items: God Finds Stepdad, Euphoria Actor to This Is Us and More

Tom Everett Scott God Friended Me

Cara’s family tree is expanding on God Friended Me: Tom Everett Scott (I’m Sorry, Southland) will guest-star on the CBS drama as the young journalist’s stepfather, Paul Levine, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Miles will meet his girlfriend’s stepdad for the first time after learning Paul is his newest Friend suggestion in the second season’s ninth episode. Viewers, of course, will recall that Cara’s mother (played by Dear Evan Hansen‘s Rachel Bay Jones) got remarried and had a daughter after leaving Cara’s father (Alias vet Michael Vartan).

Episode 9 will also feature guest star William Sadler (Power, Roswell) as Reverend Elias, a leader within the Episcopal Church with whom Arthur finds himself at odds.

God Friended Me airs Sundays on CBS.
