If you weren’t already interested enough in Michael J. Fox’s return to television, this might help: Candice Bergen and Charles Grodin have been cast to play his parents on NBC’s upcoming The Michael J. Fox Show, EW has confirmed.

Bergen, of course, is famous for her turns in Murphy Brown and, more recently, Boston Legal and House; Grodin starred as the father in the Beethoven movies and guest-starred on Law & Order: SVU last year. The pair will join Fox on the show in a guest/recurring-role capacity.
