Out actor Murray Bartlett has joined the cast of Nashville.

Bartlett will have a recurring role playing Jakob Fine, a “very handsome, charismatic and successful men's fashion designer,” Deadline Hollywood reported.

Bartlett, 45, most recently played Dom Basaluzzo for two season on HBO's gay drama Looking. Looking ended earlier this year with a made-for-television movie.

Other television credits include stints on US daytime soap operas All My Children and Guiding Light. The Australian-born actor also appeared on the Australian prime-time soap Home and Away.

Transgender actress Jen Richards is also joining the cast in season 5.

ABC canceled the country music drama in May after four seasons. Roughly a month later, CMT announced that it would broadcast the show's fifth season, consisting of 22 episodes.
