Wyclef Jean moving to 'Nashville' in a recurring role
ABC would not reveal any character information just yet, only that the Fugees musician will be in multiple episodes. Zap2it confirmed the guest spot after Jean posted a photo of himself on the "Nashville" set.
UPDATE: Jean will be playing the head of a music label, ABC confirms.

"On the With thé hotest cast on TV #Nashville @sampalladio @clarembee @jonathanjackson Rya kihlstedt pic.twitter.com/cNsoGSrf," Jean tweets. "I AM on a movie set for the new t v show Nashville on my birthday but im very excited! I told your i would Be working out for à flim!"
It's not Jean's first attempt at acting -- he has a handful of credits throughout the years, including several episodes of the medical drama "Third Watch" and a role in Beyonce's acting debut, the MTV movie "Carmen: A Hip Hopera."
Judging from the photo evidence alone (and nothing else), we'll hypothesize that maybe Jean is playing a music label exec? If he were playing a politician he'd be hanging out with Eric Close or Powers Boothe, not aspiring musicians Clare Bowen and Sam Palladio. [ UPDATE: Nailed it!]
What type of character do you think Jean should play on "Nashville"?
