'Nashville': Susan Misner cast as a love interest for Deacon
The character's name has not yet been released, but TVLine reports that Misner will play a woman who comes into the "Nashville" world from outside of the music industry. Instead, she will be a vet who has just moved to town. Whatever the situation that develops between this new lady and Deacon, we can expect her to be around for at least a few episodes.
Considering how long Deacon has been obsessed with Rayna ( Connie Britton), a new and different love interest like this could make things interesting for the guitar player. Misner's character isn't supposed to be anything like either Rayna or Juliette ( Hayden Panettiere), thus revealing a new side to Deacon.
A TV veteran, Misner has recurred on several popular shows over the past few years. She played Alison Humphrey on "Gossip Girl," Jessica Arndt on "Person of Interest" and FBI wife Sandra Beeman on "The Americans."
