Dirty Sexy Money‘s Peter Krause and ER‘s Maura Tierney are expected to appear in NBC’s TV adaptation of Ron Howard’s Parenthood.
Once Tierney completes negotiations the two will play small screen versions of the characters portrayed by Steve Martin and Dianne Wiest.
Craig T. Nelson is also set to co-star in the pilot.
Parenthood, from Friday Night Lights creator Jason Katims, revolves around adult siblings, the Bravermans.
Krause will play Adam Braverman, a married man with two children who is a lunatic beneath the surface. Tierney will play his sister, Sarah Braverman, a single mother. Nelson will play their father, a Vietnam vet-turned-actor/hippie.
Ron Howard is one of three executive producers.
