Sources confirm to me exclusively that Joy Bryant and Tyree Brown — who play Dax Shepard’s onscreen girlfriend Jasmine and son Jabbar respectively — have been upgraded to full-fledged series regulars.

Bryant’s promotion actually kicked in last spring, while Brown’s deal was just finalized yesterday.

In the season 1 finale, Crosby impulsively followed Jasmine and Jabbar to New York. It’s probably safe to assume that their East Coast adventure will hit a snag and they’ll all end up moving back to the Bay Area. But I could be wrong. Don’t think I am.

Thoughts? Excited Jasmine and Jabbar are sticking around?
