'Cougar Town' welcomes Barry Bostwick

barry-bostwick-320.jpgBarry Bostwick is Laurie's boyfriend's dad.

Yes, that's right, Laurie (Busy Philipps) has got a boyfriend, people.

And no, it's not Grayson (Josh Hopkins). 



Sure, they hooked up this week. But there will be no mad rush into a committed, romantic relationship for those two.

In fact, I'm told there will be much energy spent trying to hide the hook up from Jules (Courteney Cox). Also, we haven't seen the last of Smith (Ryan Devlin).

Smith is the "bf" I speak of and he will be back from law school for Valentine's Day, along with Barry Bostwick whom, sources say, has been cast as his pops.

Bostwick worked with "Cougar Town" creator Bill Lawrence on "Spin City," playing Mayor Randall Winston from 1996 to 2002.

In 2003, he did a guest spot on Lawrence's "Scrubs" as well.

UPDATE: ABC confirms that Bostwick will play Smith's father in "Cougar Town"'s Feb. 10 episode.
