Joseph David-Jones (Allegiant, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow) and Cameron Scoggins (Hunter & Game) have been cast as recurrings on CMT’s upcoming fifth season of country music drama Nashville.
David-Jones will play Clay, a musician in his mid-20s who is destined for great things. He is a creative, self-aware, highly motivated young man who suffers intense mood swings but nonetheless is charming and outgoing. His musical style is eclectic, with modern elements but also nods to African-American roots music, bluegrass and even classic country. Scoggins is Zach Welles, a young Silicon Valley billionaire and huge Rayne Jaymes fan. Boyish, ebullient and personable, Zach is a nerd who made good, and though still a nerd, he has the confidence and self-image of someone who isn’t.
