D.B. Woodside Joins Cast Of "Parenthood" As Potential Love Interest For Joy Bryant's Character

Fans of NBC’s sitcom Parenthood might be happy to know that D.B. Woodside is joining the series’ cast in a five-episode story arc, playing a Dr. Joseph Prestidge, described as “an Ivy League-educated doctor and potential love interest for Joy Bryant’s Jasmine.

Here’s another standard network TV show I don’t watch and know nothing about…

But, what I learned from some quickie research is that Joy Bryant’s character (Jasmine) is already in a relationship with a Caucasian fellow named Crosby (played by Dax Shepard); however, when season 3 begins next month, something happens that pushes them apart, as they realize that maybe they aren’t best for each other.

So, this should make some folks happy, right? Jasmine goes from being in an interracial relationship with a white dude (Dax Shepard) as brotha Woodside steps in as his replacement.

Hey, an actual black couple on a major network (NBC) TV show!! Wow! :)

Parenthood returns for season 3 on Tuesday, September 13.
