Paul McDonaldParenthood: American Idol’s Paul McDonald Cast as [Spoiler]‘s New Crush Interest


According to TVLine’s Michael Ausiello, Paul McDonald, who was an eighth place runner-up on American Idol, has been cast in a recurring guest-star role for season 4 of Parenthood. Here’s an excerpt from the article:


The singer-songrwiter will play a musician who uses Crosby and Adam’s recording space, The Luncheonette, and promptly catches the eye of the studio’s new assistant, Amber (Mae Whitman).


This will mark McDonald’s acting debut.


Parenthood‘s fourth season premieres on Tuesday, Sept. 11 on NBC.


My thoughts: I definitely have mixed feelings about this casting news, because I don’t always like it when shows cast reality TV show stars with no acting experience in guest-star roles. Sometimes they can be very bad actors. Although, in Paul McDonald‘s case the fact that he’s a singer is a good thing since the character that he’ll be playing is a singer who’s recording at Crosby and Adam’s studio. Now all that remains to be seen is whether or not Paul is a halfway decent actor.
