Looks like Aussie-born actor Murray Bartlett is heading to Nashville  …  the CMT drama that is!  According to Deadline, Bartlett had now been cast in the upcoming 5th season of the music city drama in the new recurring role of fashion designer Jakob Fine.

Bartlett is familiar to soap fans for his role as Cyrus Foley on Guiding Light from 2007-2009 and more recently starred in the HBO series Looking. 

The role of Nashville’s Jakob is described as “a very handsome, charismatic and successful men’s fashion designer.”

Could Bartlett be a potential new love interest for one of the women on the Nashville canvas, or could his character of Jakob be a love interest for country western singer Will Lexington (Chris Carmack)?

    I’m a huge fan of Murray Bartlett. He injected some much-needed energy into the final years of Guiding Light, and had real chemistry with Beth Ehlers. Looking forward to seeing him on “Nashville.”
