The actor will play Zach, the drummer in the band fronted by new arrival Oliver (All American Rejects‘ Tyson Ritter) who bonds with Amber while recording at the Luncheonette.

It’s safe to say Amber’s main squeeze Ryan (the returning Matt Lauria) will have something to say about her new *cough* friend.

Parenthood‘s fifth season premieres Thursday, Sept. 26 at 10/9c.
