Two casting items from the Music City drama Nashville which returns for its third season on Wednesday night, September 24th at 10PMET on ABC!
First, Dancing with the Stars professional dancing champion, Derek Hough will play a role in the new season! The five-time ballroom dance competition show champ will appear on the ABC drama as Noah West! Hough is set for a multi-episode story arc.
According to TV Guide, ” Noah is a movie star who crosses paths with Rayna (Connie Britton) & Co. after he’s cast in a biopic about a famous country singer. Whether or not he’ll be doing any romancing while he’s in town is still unknown.”
Elsewhere TV Line is confirming a tweet sent out by actress Judith Hoag, who plays Tandy, the sister of Rayna James on the series. Hoag revealed she is existing season 3 of Nashville after the second episode that airs on October 1st.
Apparently, Tandy will not be killed-off, but instead written out. TV Line is reporting that, “the door is being left open for Tandy to return at some point, though that seems unlikely (at least in the near future).”
So what do you think about Derek Hough joining Nashville? Who do you think his character of Noah West might be romantically linked with? And are you sad to hear that Tandy is being written-out? Comment below!
