Los Angeles: Dancer-actor Derek Hough will appear in `Nashville`s third season in a multi-episode storyline.
The five-time `Dancing with the Stars` champion has been cast as the charming film star Noah West, suggest reports.
Noah West encounters the musicians of Nashville while preparing to star in a biopic about a legendary country music star.
Hough previously acted in a short-lived comedy `Better with You`, but `Nashville` will be his first major role.
It has also been confirmed that Alexa PenaVega and Laura Benanti have signed up for multi-episode arcs in `Nashville`.
The show will also make history with an episode that cuts between previously filmed dramatic scenes and live musical performances from the show`s Bluebird Cafe set.
`Nashville` third season will premiere on September 24.
