Jasmine who?

A potential love connection is about to walk into the Luncheonette on NBC’s Parenthood.

EW has learned that Courtney Ford, best known for playing Portia Bellefleur on True Blood, will appear in multiple episodes as Lily, a 30-something cellist who rents time in Crosby and Adam’s recording studio.

Here’s the official description of her character: “She’s bright, observant, wry-humored, and warmly appealing, with a down-to-earth approachability, as well as a real passion for music. Despite an inauspicious start, she and Crosby really begin to connect.”

Ford has booked a multi-episode arc that will air after the drama returns from holiday break in January. She’s also appeared on The Vampire Diaries and Dexter.
