NBC announced that William Baldwin (“Dirty Sexy Money,” “Gossip Girl”) will join the cast of the network’s returning drama “Parenthood” (Tuesdays, 10-11 p.m. ET) for a multiple-episode arc.
Baldwin will be playing Gordon Flint, Adam’s (Peter Krause) wealthy, charismatic boss. Gordon is content to let Adam do the grunt work of running the company, preferring to spend his time thinking about the “big picture.” A dedicated bachelor, Gordon’s romantic life is the polar opposite to Adam’s relationship with Kristina (Monica Potter). Gordon brings tension to the Braverman clan when he sets his sights on Adam’s sister, Sarah (Lauren Graham).
Baldwin first gained recognition for his breakout performance in the feature film “Backdraft.” His other film credits include “The Squid & The Whale,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall,” “Adrift in Manhattan,” Flatliners,” “Internal Affairs,” “Three of Hearts,” “Primary Suspect” and “Born on the Fourth of July.” Baldwin will lend his voice to the upcoming animated feature “Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths” as well as the soon-to-be-released “1 a Minute.”
On television, Baldwin recently starred in the critically-acclaimed “Dirty Sexy Money” and had a recurring role on last season’s “Gossip Girl.”
“Parenthood” is a one-hour drama inspired by the box-office comedy hit of the same name that premiered last March. The re-imagined and updated production introduces audiences to the large and colorful yet imperfect Braverman family, and features an all-star cast that includes Lauren Graham, Peter Krause, Monica Potter, Craig T. Nelson, Bonnie Bedelia, Erika Christensen, Dax Shepard, Joy Bryant, Sam Jaeger, Sarah Ramos, Mae Whitman, Miles Heizer, Savannah Rae, Max Burkholder and Tyree Brown.
Serving as executive producers are Oscar winners Ron Howard and Brian Grazer (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost/Nixon”), Peabody Award winner Jason Katims (“Friday Night Lights”) and Lawrence Trilling (“Pushing Daisies”).
“Parenthood” is from Imagine Television and Universal Media Studios.
