American Idol's Paul McDonald Joins Parenthood (Set Photos!)

Parenthood is back on NBC this Tuesday with a new character who is ready to stir up some trouble in the Braverman family. Former American Idol contestant Paul McDonald is set to appear as a guitarist who catches the eye of one of the Braverman ladies.

Nick (McDonald) is a guitarist in a band that just signed up to record at Crosby (Dax Shephard) and Adam’s (Peter Krause) defunct recording studio, The Luncheonette. At the same time the uncles hire niece Amber (Mae Whitman) to take over administrative duties at their ultra hip business. During this time she and Nick cross paths and quickly become smitten. McDonald will appear in the first few episodes of the series as her boyfriend, but things quickly turn sour.

A photo shows Adam having words with Amber, and it’s likely about her new love interest. Things go so quickly between she and Nick that the relationship doesn’t quite have a long future, especially with her uncles watching their every move.

Not only can fans of the American Idol alumnus catch his acting debut, but McDonald recently shared on Twitter that they are also in for a special treat.

“How many of you folks are excited for the @nbcparenthood premiere on Sept 11th? Tune in & you might hear some new tunes from me & the guys!”

It’s no surprise McDonald would make the jump from music to the small screen. Not only does he have devilish good looks, but he’s married to Twilight star Nikki Reed. She often appears in his music videos and even singing background on his tracks. A couple that works together, stays together?
