Murray Bartlett Is Coming to Nashville

Actor Cast as Fashion Designer on the Upcoming Fifth Season

Murray Bartlett (Looking, Guiding Light, Sex and the City) has been cast as a recurring character in Nashville’s upcoming fifth season.

He will play Jakob Fine, a very handsome, charismatic and successful men’s fashion designer.

Bartlett is joining Grammy-winning singer Rhiannon Giddens and Emmy-nominated actress Jen Richards, who were also recently added to Nashville’s star-studded cast.

Nashville returns with a special two-hour premiere on Jan. 5 on CMT. Longtime SVOD partner Hulu will continue to bring fans new episodes of Nashville by making them available to stream the day after they air on CMT.

Writer and social-ite for CMT, lover of all things Nashville, and firm believer that Ross and Rachel were not on a break.
