UPDATE: Now it is being reported that former Gilmore Girls star Lauren Graham is in talks to replace Maura in Parenthood. Who would you rather see star in the new drama? Place your bets in the poll to the left.
Helen Hunt may replace Maura Tierney in NBC's Parenthood. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Helen has been approached and is said to be considering the offer. If she does accept the role, this would mark Helen's return to series television since NBC's Mad About You ended in 1999.
Maura dropped out of the show last week to focus on her breast cancer treatments. She had surgery earlier this summer to remove a tumor, causing NBC to push Parenthood's fall premiere date to midseason to accommodate her recovery.
