Matt Lauria and Parenthood co-star Mae Whitman were getting hot, heavy and wet on the beach Wednesday while filming scenes for the NBC show.

The former Friday Night Lights star was seen in nothing except his underwear as he frolicked in the ocean with Whitman, who wore only her bra and a skirt. Flip through our gallery of the steamy beach scene above.

Lauria, whose FNL character Luke Cafferty left for the Army on the series finale, popped up on Parenthood this season as Ryan, a veteran returning from two tours in Afghanistan. His character strikes up an unlikely friendship with head of the Braverman clan and fellow war veteran, Zeek (Craig T. Nelson).

What’s in store for Ryan and Whitman’s Amber Braverman?

Ryan has been fitting right in with the Braverman family after Zeek took him under his wing. On the most recent episode of the show, he even took in a baseball game with the family and shared a laugh with Amber.

Sparks were apparent between the duo and with these shots we can’t wait to see the full on fling that is going to go down.

The pair have been tweeting back and forth while filming and sharing adorable pictures snapped on set. Lauria recently tweeted to a fan that his stay on Parenthood is, “so far, six [episodes long]… with more coming!”

Lauria isn’t the only FNL alum to appear on Jason KatimsParenthood. Minka Kelly and Michael B. Jordan have also done stints on the NBC drama.

Parenthood airs Tuesdays at 10 PM on NBC.
