It looks like Nora (Sally Field) will be starting the new year with a new love on BROTHERS & SISTERS. Entertainment Weekly reports that Beau Bridges has signed on for at least five episodes of the ABC drama, playing a love interest of the Walker matriarch. His arc begins early next year.

This casting marks a reunion for Field and Bridges, who co-starred in the 1979 film Norma Rae. Bridges has recently guest starred in television shows My Name is Earl, Desperate Housewives, and The Closer.

Brothers & Sisters, which recently saw its episode order upped from 18 to 22, airs on ABC Sundays at 10pm/ 9 central.
