Lyndon Smith (90210) has been cast in a heavily recurring role on NBC’s family dramedy Parenthood. She will play Natalie, a fellow freshman in Drew’s (Miles Heizer) college class at Berkeley on whom Drew quickly develops a huge crush. Smith is with Main Title and Buchwald.
Harry Dean Stanton and Daniel Stern are set for appearances on HBO’s upcoming series Getting On, a U.S. version of the award-winning BBC Four medical comedy. Stanton will play Leonard Butler, a frail but feisty octogenarian who only has only one thing on his mind: sex with his girlfriend from his assisted living facility. Stern will play Richard James, husband to director of medicine Dr. Jenna James (Laurie Metcalf). Charming and erudite, but at times can be like a bull in a China shop.
