Nashville is bringing in a handsome Broadway star to play an openly gay country artist.
On a related note: Will Lexington, it might be time to update that Grindr profile.
Pippin‘s Kyle Dean Massey will join the ABC series in the recurring role of out-and-proud singer Kevin Bicks, our sister site Deadline reports.
Kevin is a successful country artist who happens to like guys, and his very existence deflates Will’s theory that the genre will never accept a gay superstar.
Massey’s other TV gigs include The Good Wife, Inside Amy Schumer and Hart of Dixie.
