Katie Couric will make a cameo as herself on This Is Us before the end of Season 1, creator Dan Fogelman told reporters at the Television Critics Association winter previews in Pasadena, Calif., Wednesday.
"He plays a friend from William's (Ron Cephas Jones) past is all I can say," Fogleman said. "In both flashback and present day." Could Randall (Sterling K. Brown) perhaps have a brother? Whatever the relationship he has with Randall's dad William, it's enough to make Brown happy: he shared his enthusiasm over the guest appearance on Twitter.
This Is Us airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on NBC. The season finale airs March 7.
