Casting news out of ABC’s Music City drama, Nashville!

The sudsy series which will return for its fourth season this fall, which also stars Jonathan Jackson (Avery and GH’s Lucky), along with Connie Britton  (Rayna) and Hayden Panettiere (Juliette), is adding a new character to the mix.

The series is looking to cast the role of Markus Kane, a globally successful, late-20s to 40 something artist who’s looking for a new label to represent him as a solo act, enter Rayna James and her Highway 65  label! Apparently, Markus has been big in rock and roll and plays guitar like no other, but deep down he is a storyteller, and a compelling songwriter.

But there is a twist according to TV Line:  “Things are great … until Markus realizes how much Rayna’s fledgling company needs his solo album to be a hit.  That’s when his controlling, narcissistic side comes out, and he’ll test his boss’ boundaries throughout the writing, recording and release of his first solo album.”

The character could be slated for up to ten episodes of the series, and the show is looking for a solid actor, singer, and musician to fill this key role!

So, anyone from primetime, music, daytime, you think would be an excellent candidate for the role of Markus Kane on Nashville?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Would definitely love to see Jason Thompson fill this role. He’s so talented and I think it’s high time he made the jump from daytime to primetime for sure. Plus, he sings, plays guitar and writes. Think he’d be a good fit.

Ex-Nashville and GL’s Hayden Panettiere’s Boyfriend Arrested After Allegedly Punching Her

More upsetting news involving former ABC and CMT’s Nashville star (Ex-Juliette Barnes), Hayden Panettiere.  According to various reports, the actress was punched by her boyfriend Brian Hickerson with a closed fist in an incident that occurred in Wyoming, over the Valentine’s Day weekend.  He was arrested around 2:30am on February 14th.

According to TMZ: the police report said that Hayden revealed that she and Brian were in their bedroom when he started throwing her around and punched her.  The Teton County Sheriff’s Office was notified of a disturbance at a private residence. That caller said an intoxicated male was locked out of the home because he punched his girlfriend in the face.

Pantierre’s face was red and swollen, and she also had a scrape and swelling on her left hand; which she believed came from Hickerson’s watch during the altercation.  Deputies then decided to book Hickerson for domestic battery. He was also hit with a second charge of interfering with a police officer for allegedly refusing to identify himself.

Things looked like they had taken a turn for the better before the incident, noting that the couple moved past another altercation previously from 2019.  That case was dismissed, although he has left red marks on Pantierre’s body, because they could not find a “material witness”.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
