Derek Hough Lands Acting Part on “Nashville”!!

YAY!! Love this show. Derek’s publicist tweeted it so you know it’s got to be true…From People.com

PEOPLE has learned that the Dancing with the Stars pro will join ABC’s Nashville this season for a multi-episode arc.

Hough will play Noah West, a 20-something movie star who will cross paths with the Nashville characters when he’s tapped for a leading role in the biopic of a famous country singer.

ABC says the role requires Hough to play a “beguiling and disarming” guy. Not so much of a stretch for the 29-year-old hoofer, eh?

Derek Hough is officially ABC’s golden boy.

And don’t you dare forget it, honey. :-D

Noah is a “beguiling and disarming” 20-something movie star who has been tapped for a leading role in the biopic of a famous country singer. So how will he fit into the lives of our favorite country crooners?

Seeing as how Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) is heading to Hollywood in an attempt to headline that very same biopic, it sounds like she and Noah are fated to butt heads, as the it boy actor, who has already been cast as her onscreen hubby, isn’t going to be the biggest fan of Juliette’s. Now why on Earth would he feel that way?
