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.
