Will Chase to Romance Rayna on Nashville

by at . Comments

Will Chase has booked a ticket to Nashville.

The Broadway veteran, who struck up a romance with Debra Messing's Julia on Smash, will portray a country music star who gets mighty close to Connie Britton's Rayna on Nashville season 2.

Based on past casting scoops, his character may need to compete with that of Oliver Hudson, a record executive who will also have his sights set on Ms. James.

Nashville Season 2 kicks off on Wednesday, September 25.
