Will Chase The Deuce

Nashville's Will Chase Joins HBO Porn Drama The Deuce for Arc

Will Chase… porn star?!

The Nashville actor has booked a multi-episode arc on HBO’s forthcoming porn-themed period drama The Deuce, TVLine has learned exclusively.

Written by Wire creator David Simon and frequent collaborator George Pelecanos, the series — which stars James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal — chronicles the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s.

HBO confirmed Chase’s casting but declined to provide details on his character. As TVLine reported last month, Chase will not be returning to Nashville as a regular when the series segues from ABC to CMT later this year. The Smash alum can currently be seen channeling William Shakespeare in Broadway’s Something Rotten!

    Any word on how/if this will affect his run in Something Rotten? He just started in the show a couple of weeks ago. I’d hate to see him leave so soon. If the HBO series films in NYC, he could do both simultaneously, like Jeremy Jordan did with Smash and Newsies.

    Guess he’s in the XXX’s now. 😉

    He will forever be “Michael Swift of Bombshell fame” to me.
