Nashville alum Will Chase has booked a recurring role on The Deuce, HBO’s upcoming drama series starring James Franco and Maggie Gyllenhaal.

Written by The Wire creator David Simon and longtime collaborator George Pelecanos and directed by Michelle MacLaren, The Deuce follows the story of the legalization and subsequent rise of the porn industry in New York’s Times Square from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, exploring the rough-and-tumble world that existed there until the rise of HIV, the violence of the cocaine epidemic, and the renewed real estate market ended the bawdy turbulence.

Chase will play a recently divorced father. He’s repped by Gersh and AC Management.
