John CorbettJohn Corbett is reprising his role as Lauren Graham's ex on 'Parenthood' this season. The former 'Sex and the City' stud will drop into town for several episodes as Seth, the alcoholic father of Sarah's character.

"Just when everything seems to be going well between Sarah and Mark [Jason Ritter], Seth shows up and he's kind of in a darker place than he's been," creator Jason Katims told TVLine. "And so you see Sarah really having to struggle with wanting to help him and be there for him, but also at the same time [be fully present] in this relationship with Mark that's really good and healthy."

Also going on in the Braverman world: Brittany Belt will play Haddie's BFF who disapproves of her relationship with Alex, TVLine reports.

John Corbett Is Seth on 'Parenthood'On 'Parenthood' (Tue., 10PM ET on NBC), Sarah Braverman's ex (played by John Corbett) finally rolls into town. It would seem like an excellent opportunity for the rocker/absentee dad to visit his teenage kids Amber and Drew. But the recovering alcoholic is hesitant, and doesn't give Sarah any advance notice of his arrival.

Seth later explains his presence to her, saying, "I got a couple gigs in town over the next few weeks." She's incredulous -- and hurt. "You're here for gigs? And you didn't even call me, at least, to let me know?"

"I know that I screwed up a hundred times in a hundred different ways, and it probably doesn't matter than I'm beyond sorry," Seth says, choking up. "I really am. I wanta be part of Drew and Amber's lives, whatever it takes."

'United States of Tara' - 'Doin' Time' Recap

(S02E05) There's something very comforting about the massive dysfunction among Tara and her family, especially since they have such a way of not letting the craziness really get to them. It's almost as if Tara's condition has prepared those around her to accept whatever slings and arrows get tossed their way. More on the latest patient of Dr. Shoshona Schoenbaum and Neil's hairy back patch after the jump.

Wow, just when you think you've seen it all from Tara, something happens and you're left with your jaw dropping to the floor. Creator Diablo Cody has clearly decided that Tara's psyche is not just split, it's a frigging kaleidoscope.

Last season, there was the animal creation that came out of nowhere, and in this episode, yet another variation on the theme. However, if you saw this one coming, you're better than me, 'cause I was stunned. And surprisingly excited, too. For more on Tara, Max, Marshall and Princess Valhalla, keep reading after the jump.

Max Discovers Tara's Secret Girlfriend on 'United States of Tara' (VIDEO)

Joey Lauren Adams on 'United States of Tara'On last night's 'United States of Tara' (Mon., 11PM ET on SHO), Tara's husband Max (John Corbett) found out -- in public -- that his wife (Toni Collette) is cheating on him. To be clear, it's one of Tara's split personalities, but still.

Tara tried to explain to girlfriend Pammy (Joey Lauren Adams) that it's her "fake personality" Buck who's been pursuing her. She doesn't care, going so far as to announce her love to Tara -- and husband Max and fellow ice-skating patrons.

"Buck, I love you, I love you for who you really are. Buck, Tara -- all of you!" Max is, suffice to say, pissed.

Sex was the topic of the day in and around the 'United States of Tara,' with nearly everyone questioning, experimenting, wondering and musing about the subject. Gay, straight, bi and variations on a theme. There was something about dogs in a bathtub that's still beyond me. But for the real skinny on how Tara's getting on, follow me after the jump and join the free skate.

There's nothing united about Tara's states right now. After all the time away in therapy and the realization that her shattered persona was not the result of what happened at school when she was a teenager, the reality emerging is that something is askew in her psyche that cannot be fixed... The lid on the pot is shaking and ready to explode. More on that and Marshall's gay-size shorts after the jump.

The united part of the 'United States of Tara' was served up handily in the season premiere, with the family looking like the model of normalcy. And yet even as there seemed to be nothing wrong, below the surface was that gnawing feeling that Buck, T, Alice and whoever, might be lurking, ready to pop out. When the pop finally went off, however, it wasn't what we anticipated. It wasn't even in their house. More on that and the purple carnations after the jump.

'United States of Tara' Returns: John Corbett Talks Season 2

by Anna Dimond, posted Mar 22nd 2010 6:00PM
Showtime's 'United States of Tara' debuted last year with executive producer Steven Spielberg and Oscar-winning writer Diablo Cody ('Juno') at the helm. As the show kicks off its second season (Mon., March 22 at 10:30PM ET on Showtime), it's established itself as both a ratings winner and a critical success.

The show stars Toni Collette as Tara Gregson, a suburban mom with Dissociative Identity Disorder, which leads her to experience multiple personalities (known as alters on the show). In season 1, viewers got to know Tara's alters -- from the teenage "T" to the tough-talking Buck -- and saw how her husband Max (John Corbett) and their two teen children dealt with such circumstances alongside the everyday issues that average families face.

'United States of Tara' was nominated for a handful of recent awards, and Collette scored an Emmy and a Golden Globe for her performance. And while Tara is still the driving personality in the show, Corbett's character reveals new components of his personality this season as the consequences of his wife's disorder begin to take a toll.

Corbett chatted with AOL TV to give us a glimpse of what to expect in season 2, what his reaction was to Max's arc, and why you'll never hear a 'Sex and the City' reference in his other on-camera projects.

'United States of Tara' Sets Season 2 Premiere Date of March 22, 2010

by Jane Boursaw, posted Nov 8th 2009 12:17PM
Toni Collette, The United States of TaraIf you haven't checked out 'United States of Tara' yet, now would be a good time to do that. Season 2 of the Showtime series is set to premiere March 22, 2010. Plenty of time to get caught up with season 1.

Created by Diablo Cody ('Juno'), the show scored six Emmy wins earlier this year, including Outstanding Actress in a Comedy Series for Toni Collette. If anyone can play four personalities in the same body, it's Collette. And scoring a part like this must be like striking gold for an actress. Here's a little primer on the many faces of Tara:

Right now on Cinematical

The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • My Big Fat Greek Wedding stars, Nia Vardalos and John Corbett are teaming up again in a new rom-com.
  • I had absolutely no recollection of The Fugitive's trailer, but watching it again makes me understand why Cinematical included it as a Terrific Trailer.
  • While a good movie, I found Lars and the Real Girl to be quite disturbing. So the fact that The Beaver is being compared to it, involves a hand puppet and may star Jim Carrey? Frankly, I'm terrified.
  • I haven't gotten a chance to see Wolverine yet, but according to this Cinematical poll, it wasn't great. What did you think?
  • I'm not exactly waiting for the G.I. Joe movie with bated breath, but in case you are, here's the trailer in HD.

How big will the next Sex and the City movie be?

by Allison Waldman, posted Apr 6th 2009 12:07PM
Sex ladiesThe first Sex and the City movie wasn't just a hit. It was a big, big hit. The worldwide box office was $400 million, which even in today's inflated dollars is an awful lot of cash. Therefore, it was no surprise that New Line has green lighted a sequel to the feature based on the HBO series for release in 2010.

Debra wasn't thrilled with more Sex features, but I have faith in Michael Patrick King. However, there is another issue; while all the ladies are inked for the Sex and the City sequel, Chris Noth is not, which may -- or may not -- be a "big" deal.
