Casting Roundup: Sarah Chalke on 'Cougar Town,' Plus 'Community,' 'Glee' & More

'Scrubs star' Sarah Chalke is headed to 'Cougar Town.' TVLine reports that Chalke will be joining the wine-soaked ABC comedy in a recurring role as Bobby's photography professor and love interest.

It's a reunion for Chalke and Bill Lawrence, the co-creator of both 'Scrubs' and 'Cougar Town.' Lawrence has steadily been recruiting 'Scrubs' actors for his new show -- so far he's nabbed Ken Jenkins, Sam Lloyd, Robert Clendenin, Zach Braff and Scott Foley to serve double-duty.

In other TV casting news, we're about to meet the parents on 'Community', 'Glee' and 'Nikita.' Check out the details after the jump.

• On 'Glee,' Emma's parents are coming to town, possibly to meet Will. 'Northern Exposure' veteran Valerie Mahaffey and Ron Most, who played Ralph on 'Happy Days, will appear in the high school musical's Oct. 4 episode. [TV Guide]

'Community' continues to fill out its increasingly zany cast. Former 'Deadwood' actor Larry Cedar will appear on an early Season 3 episode as Pierce's (Chevy Chase) dad. Cedar is 12 years younger than Chase. [TVLine]

• Jacqueline Bisset will return to 'Rizzoli & Isles' to reprise her role as Maura's adoptive mother. [The Hollywood Reporter]

• Rounding out the family reunions, David Keith, who 'Lone Star' aficionados may remember as James Wolk's dad, will be now be playing Maggie Q's father on 'Nikita.' [TVLine]
