'Parenthood' books another 'Friday Night Lights' alum
TV Line reports that Smollett will have a major recurring role for the upcoming full season, playing Heather Hall, a smart, up-and-coming political operative who is hired by Kristina Braverman to be her campaign manager.
Kristina running for political office is a major Season 5 storyline, in case you hadn't heard. We would imagine after beating cancer, the political arena will be a piece of cake.
"Parenthood" returns to NBC on Thursday, Sept. 26.
