The fourth season of This Is Us has added Tim Matheson to its call sheet. 

20th Century Fox TV confirms that Matheson has been cast in the forthcoming season of This Is Us. According to multiple sources, Matheson has landed a recurring role as Dave, Rebecca’s father (Mandy Moore). 

Matheson’s appearance on the show will mark the first time Rebecca’s father has been seen in the onscreen series. 

“Rebecca is a bit of a daddy’s girl. There are certain things that they don’t align on. But I think at the end of the day she really loves her father for who he is. He’s quite protective of her,” Moore tells Entertainment Weekly.

He joins series stars Milo Ventimiglia, Sterling K. Brown, Chrissy Metz, and Justin Hartley, tas well as a slew of new faces including Jennifer Morrison, Omar Epps, M. Night Shyamalan, Nick Wechsler, Asante Blackk, Marsha Stephanie Blake, Timothy Omundson, Bahara Golestani, Julian Silva, and Auden Thornton. 

Matheson’s other TV credits include The West Wing, Hart of Dixie, Burn Notice, and Bonanza.
