Monica Potter to star opposite Peter Krause in 'Parenthood' pilot

Posted on

Monica Potter has joined NBC’s burgeoning Parenthood pilot cast, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The TV adaptation of the 1989 hit film will follow four siblings — played by Peter Krause, Maura Tierney, Erika Christensen, and Dax Shepard — and their parents — played by Craig T. Nelson and, likely, Bonnie Bedella (who’s still in final negotiations). Potter will play Krause’s wife, stepping in for originally cast Diane Farr, who had a scheduling conflict with a recurring role on Showtime’s Californication. Sam Jaeger (Eli Stone) is also now set to play Christensen’s husband.
