Here’s some news that will be music to the ears of Parenthood viewers: Glen Hansard is guest-starring as himself on an upcoming episode of the NBC drama. The Oscar-winning singer/songwriter and star of Once will use the Luncheonette to record a few tracks. Hosting another famous musician at the studio poses problems for Adam (Peter Krause) and Crosby (Dax Shepard), as they are engaged in a legal battle with their ill-tempered neighbor, who is less than thrilled with all of the activity going on next door.

Hansard, who is a member of The Frames and The Swell Season, sings two songs in the episode, which is titled “Trouble in Candyland” and airs Dec. 4.
