In the wake of the series finale of Parenthood, Graham has been busy working on a film titled Max. It’s a coming-of-age story about “a young boy who inherits a military dog after his brother dies on the frontlines in Afghanistan.” Graham plays the mother, Thomas Haden Church (Wings, Sideways) plays the dad. Josh Wiggins (Hellion) plays the young brother.
