Meet Michael J. Fox’s new TV parents: Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin, have been tapped for guest/potential recurring roles on Fox’s new NBC comedy series. He stars in The Michael J. Fox Show as popular New York news anchor Mike Henry, who returns to work after years as a stay-at-home dad following a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease. On Fox’s previous NBC series, Family Ties (1982-89), his parents were played by Meredith Baxter and Michael Gross. Grodin next will film the feature While We’re Young, playing Naomi Watts’ father.
Christina Chang (CSI: Miami) has been cast in a recurring role on the ABC drama series Nashville. She will play Deacon’s (Charles Esten) lawyer (and maybe something more). She is managed by Silver Lining.
