Peter Krause, Maura Tierney, Dax Shepard, Craig T Nelson, and Mae Whitman Cast in NBC's Remake of Parenthood

Peter Krause, Maura Tierney to Play Siblings in Parenthood

Meet the Bravermans: Peter Krause and Maura Tierney have signed on for starring roles in NBC's TV remake of Parenthood, playing new versions of the characters made famous by Steve Martin and Dianne Wiest.

They join Dax Shepard, Craig T. Nelson, Mae Whitman (who?), and the previously cast Erika Christensen as the potential members of the sprawling Braverman clan. Here's a quick breakdown of the who's-who so far:

  • Krause will play Adam Braverman, "a married man with two children who is a lunatic beneath the surface."
  • Tierney will play his sister Sarah, the single mother of . . .
  • . . . Whitman's character, a rebellious 16-year-old.
  • Shepard's character is the youngest Braverman, a slacker.
  • Christensen is their sister Julia, a corporate attorney.
  • And Nelson will play the clan's father, "a Vietnam vet-turned-actor/hippie."

I was a little skeptical of this project at first, just because a TV adaptation of Parenthood failed once before, but I'm starting to get a kick out of this cast. I'll give anything with Krause a try at least once, so I'm starting to hope that this one makes it through pilot season and onto our TVs. What about you?

So they are making a tv show based on the movie? Could be good, but it seems like a lot of new series are having a hard time.

Peter Krause tops my list of favorites; hope this is a "go" for him. (Loved the "who" joke!)

p2chick, I think that was the joke. Ann was so bland that no one ever remembered her. Every time her name was mentioned, people responded "Who?".

Um...i'm surprised that you don't know who Mae Whitman is. As cool as BuzzSugar should know that she was Ann aka Bland(according to Michael Bluth) on Arrested Development.
