Crosby Braverman

Played by: Dax Shepard in Parenthood

Crosby Braverman (Dax Shepard) is 32 years old at the beginning of the series, unmarried, third child and second son. He works as a small-time record producer. When the show opens, his longtime girlfriend, Katie, is pressuring him to settle down and start a family, an idea he is resistant to. Unexpectedly, his former lover, Jasmine, introduces Crosby to his five-year-old son, Jabbar, in the pilot episode. In season 2, Crosby and Jasmine are engaged, but he begins to feel Jasmine is too controlling, citing her desire to have "a big family" and eventually a house while not actually discussing her desires with him. When he confronts her, they have an argument and he moves back into his boat while Jasmine asks that they "figure things out." During this period Crosby sleeps with Max's behavioral aide, Gaby. He tells Jasmine and upon hearing the news, she leaves him. Crosby begs for Jasmine's forgiveness, but towards the end of the second season, Jasmine tells him she doesn't think she can forgive him for cheating on her and she has decided to move on. Crosby is determined to get her back. In the season 2 finale Crosby tells Jasmine that he is done pursuing her if she truly feels that this was the end of their relationship. Seeing this as a mature sign she comes back to visit Crosby and his new house. At the end of season 3, Crosby and Jasmine get married. He and his brother, Adam, run the Luncheonette, a recording studio. Source: Wikipedia
