"Dancing with the Stars" pro dancer Derek Hough has signed up for a multi-episode arc on ABC's "Nashville". In his first major acting gig, Hough will play a "beguiling and disarming" movie star named Noah West.

According to Deadline, West is cast for a leading role in the biopic of a famous country singer and will cross paths with the "Nashville" characters. His arc will begin in October.

Hough has also trained as a singer. He had starred in dancing movie "Make Your Move" and the stage production of "Footloose: The Musical".
