All-American Rejects’ Tyson Ritter Joins ‘Parenthood’ Season 5
All-American Rejects’ frontman Tyson Ritter is saying hello to the acting world by booking a major role on Season 5 of ‘Parenthood,’ TVLine exclusively reports.
The award-winning singer will play Oliver Rome, “the immature, egomaniacal, tantrum-prone lead singer of a hot new rock band that is recording at the Luncheonette. However, underneath the attitude, Oliver is actually a decent guy.”
Since he’ll be spending time at the Luncheonette with Adam (Peter Krause), Crosby (Dax Shepard) and most likely Amber (Mae Whitman), does this mean he’ll have eyes for the young female Braverman? If so, Ryan (Matt Lauria) - who is back for quite a few episodes next season - better keep his eyes on his lady.
However, judging from the latest ‘Parenthood’ promo, below, it looks like Amber and Ryan are blissfully happy. So happy in fact, that it’s possible Sarah (Lauren Graham) just might be planning a wedding for her daughter.
Ritter joins a long list of guest-stars this season, as ‘The Office’s David Denman, ‘Lost’s Sonya Walger, ‘Drop Dead Diva’s Josh Stamberg, and of course, the return of Hank played by ‘Everybody Loves Raymond’ star Ray Romano, will all appear sometime during Season 5.
This is Ritter’s first huge small screen role, but it isn’t the first time he’s showed off his acting chops. He’s also appeared in ‘90210,’ ‘House’ and the 2008 movie ‘The House Bunny,’ alongside Anna Faris.
Be sure to watch the following promo to see what’s happening this season. ‘Parenthood’ premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
