Ray Romano loves his 'Parenthood' role

By By JOHN CARUCCI

NEW YORK (AP) — Fans of "Parenthood" love Ray Romano.

The former star of "Everybody Loves Raymond" is currently appearing on NBC's "Parenthood" in a multi-episode arc as a photographer involved with Lauren Graham's character. He's hoping the love lasts a little longer.

Romano told The Associated Press on Tuesday he shot his last episode for season four and if the show gets a fifth season, he'd consider coming back.

"As long as they have a good idea for my character, I'd be happy to do it," Romano said.

Romano told show runner Jason Katims he was a fan of the show and joked that since his series, "Men of a Certain Age" was canceled he was "unemployed and would work cheap."

This season concludes Jan. 22. No word on if it's been renewed.
