The star of "Everybody Loves Raymond" and "Men of a Certain Age," comedic actor Ray Romano, is joining the cast of NBC’s "Parenthood" for a multi-episode arc during season four.

NBCUniversal announced in a press release that the Emmy winner will surface in the season premiere, set for Sept. 11. Romano will play a photographer and former photo journalist who befriends Sarah (Lauren Graham) and complicates her relationship with Mark (Jason Ritter).

Romano’s last series, the TNT dramedy "Men of a Certain Age," received the Peabody Award.


  1. Parenthood is a drama, not a sitcom.

  2. I am physically ill about the addition of Ray Ramano to “Parenhood.” He’s a standup comedy guy added to a cast of brilliant actors. I keep reading “nobody” even watches “Parenthood” … no one has polled me, my family or friends–we all agree it’s the best thing on TV (I cannot take another reality show). I do not want to see “Parenthood” cancelled and if this is the only way to ensure this, I’ll accept it, but I am not happy about Mr. Romano’s jumping into my favorite show.
