The Dancing With the Stars pro has joined the ABC drama for a multi-episode Season 3 arc, TVLine has confirmed.
Hough is slated to play Noah West, a “beguiling and disarming” movie star who, after landing the leading role in a famous country singer’s biopic, encounters Nashville’s music scene for the first time.
This marks the first major acting gig for Hough, who previously guest-starred on the ABC sitcom Better With You. He will also return as a pro on the upcoming 19th season of Dancing With the Stars.
Other Nashville Season 3 guest stars include Laura Benanti, Alexa Vega and Brette Taylor. TVLine’s sister site Deadline was first to report the casting.
Nashville‘s third season bows Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c.
