Nashville has only been on for, like, five months, and already we can’t imagine our world without it. So, when we heard work that one very lovely member of the super hot cast might already be on her way out, we were totally miffed. Seriously — what would make someone think of walking away from the gorgeous guys and amazing singing? Oh, just a huge show pilot.
Yep, that’s right. Chloe Bennet, who plays Gunnar Scott’s ex girlfriend Hailey on the show — and who is also Sam Palladio’s girlfriend IRL — may be hitting the dirt road away from town. In December, The Hollywood Reporter announced that Chloe will be joining the cast of Joss Whedon’s Marvel Comics-based show S.H.I.E.L.D. as a series regular.
“Bennet becomes the sixth and final regular in the drama and will play Skye,” THR reports, “a confident woman who is slightly obsessed with superhero culture and the shadow organizations that exist within it. She's edgy and can out-talk anyone with her unflappable nature.” Sounds a lot like her Nashville character, who recently got Avery Barkley (Jonathan Jackson) to consider letting her in the “Avery business.”
Will this new show mean the end of Hailey’s business dealings with Avery, or could it stop her from getting back together with Gunnar down the line? Although Chloe has posted pics of herself with the cast, the show is still in the pilot phase and hasn’t been picked up as of yet. So, while the possibility remains that the cast of Nashville might be whittled down one series regular, it isn’t for sure yet.
