TV character patterned on Berkeley Rep’s artistic director

Tony Taccone, Artistic Director of the Berkeley Rep

Tony Taccone, the artistic director of Berkeley Rep, has just been outed as a sex symbol.

Sort of.

The NBC television show Parenthood, which is ostensibly set in Berkeley, is introducing a new character that closely resembles Taccone, and making him the new love interest for Sarah Braverman, played by Lauren Graham.

Actor Steven Weber who has reportedly been hired to play the artistic director of the Berkeley Theater on TV series "Parenthood"

TheaterMania is reporting that the actor Steven Weber (“Wings”) has been hired to play Jack Kraft, the artistic director of the Berkeley Theater.


Kraft will apparently become Braverman’s new love interest on the April 19 season finale. The pair meet when Sarah submits a play to the “Berkeley Theater”.
