Watch a Preview of Tavi Gevinson Playing Haddie’s Girlfriend on ‘Parenthood’

It’s impossible to even try to describe Tavi Gevinson as a writer/actor/any other career identifier because she does so much, and that apparently includes introducing the first real non-hetero couple on Parenthood (which, for a show in its fifth season set in Berkeley, is a fatally unrealistic flaw). In the season finale, Tavi plays Lauren, the new college girlfriend of Haddie, a character who disappeared to Cornell a while back, never to be seen or heard from again. But, hey! She’s coming back with Tavi — who seems to be playing to type as a calm, rational, insightful lady friend. Things could be worse. [via Vulture]
