A recovering alcoholic and musician, Seth will return to the Braverman fold when he comes to town for a few concerts with his band. Nine months sober, he attempts to reconnect with his kids. The character was originally played by Darin Heames (Sons of Anarchy) in the pilot, but the NBC drama opted to recast the role.

Corbett, 49, is scheduled to appear in three episodes beginning with episode 13. Deadline first reported the casting.

Besides his recent role in Sex and the City 2, Corbett stars on Showtime's United States of Tara as the husband of a woman (Toni Colette) suffering from dissociative identity disorder. The comedy returns for Season 3 in March.
