Parenthood First Look: Minka Kelly

by at . Comments

Parenthood is about to get a lot prettier.

On next week's new episode, Minka Kelly will guest star as Gaby Moss, an Asperger’s tutor that helps with Kristina and Adam's son, Max.

For producer Jason Katims, there was never any doubt about who he wanted to play this role: his former Friday Night Lights star.

“On the one hand, she’s charming and easy-going,” Katims told “But she’s also quietly forceful, which is something this role requires. It’s a tough position to come in and tell anybody, ‘Hey, you’re not doing a good job with your kid.’”

Kelly will appear on two episodes of the drama. But don't rule out more down the line.

“Should we get more seasons of the show and if she’s available, I would love to [bring her back]," Katims said. "We’re waiting to see on both fronts.”

Parenthood Quotes

Amber, you know, I was two years in Viet Nam. Do you know what I thought about, what I dreamt about? Coming home, having a family, having grandkids. I dreamt you, Amber. And Haddie, and Drew, and Sydney and Max. We almost lost ya Amber. You've had some bad breaks. You're not feeling good about yourself. You didn't get into Berkeley? Well boo friggin who. You got to suck it up girl, you're a Braverman. You got my blood in your veins. If you ever do something like this again, if you even think of doing something like this again, I will kick your little butt all the way from here to the Golden Gate Bridge. You do not have my permission to mess with my dreams. Are we clear?


Amber, life will knock you down more times than you can possibly imagine. Don't knock yourself down.

Adam [to Amber]
