He’s fronted a band (The Frames), he’s been on the big screen (Once – which saw him walk away with an Oscar for Best Original song), his play made it to Broadway (Once The Musical – which has won 8 Tony Awards), and now Glen Hansard is moving to the small screen with a guest role on NBC’s Parenthood.
According to EW.com, Hansard will play himself.
The episode, entitled Trouble in Candy Land, sees him using “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’s episode will feature 2 of his songs and will air, in the US, on December 4th.
Below is a trailer for Hansard’s Once.
