So, it is true what they say. Couples who spend a lot of time together really do start to act alike — “act” being the key word in this case! American Idol alum Paul McDonald, whose wife is Twilight actress Nikki Reed, will be following in his gal’s thespian footsteps.

According to TV Line, Paul has nabbed a potentially recurring role on Parenthood as a musician who uses the recording space of two of the show regulars and catches the attention of one of the ladies.

It’ll be Paul’s first chance to display his acting chops, but being a musician himself, this role might not be too far of a stretch for him!
