Exclusive: Smash Alum Will Chase Is Gonna Rock Necessary Roughness

Necessary Roughness is looking downright Smash-ing.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Smash alum Will Chase has booked a guest spot in an upcoming episode of the USA Network dramedy, playing an erstwhile “rock god.”

Joined by actor Josh Hamilton (The Bourne Identity, Third Watch), the two will drop by as ex-bandmates who, prior to embarking on a reunion tour, seek the help of Dr. Dani (Callie Thorne) in resolving their lingering issues. The installment will air in the second half of Season 2, which is slated to run this winter.

Chase most recently recurred on NBC’s musical hit Smash, until it was announced in May that he and three of his costars (Jaime Cepero, Raza Jaffrey and Brian D’Arcy James) would be exiting the series.

Necessary Roughness resumes with new episodes this Wednesday at 10/9c.

    I’m not happy about Chase’s departure from Smash – though I’ll be thrilled to see the end of that awkward storyline – ’cause I just can’t imagine anybody else except Michael Swift in the role of DiMaggio, LOL.

    His great voice and character will be greatly missed this season on Smash. Is there a way to get him back as a regular?
