Nick Viall might be ”done” with reality TV — or, at least, Bachelor shows — but he’s found a new place in the entertainment industry.

Our four-time franchise star has moved onto acting, and he’s even secured his first role in a movie!

And luckily, we have a first look at that gig!

Since calling off his engagement to Bachelor 2017 fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi last month, the 36-year-old has remained fairly low-key.

He’s posted the occasional photo with friends on social media, and even recently attended the wedding of fellow alum Sharleen Joynt.

However, behind the scenes it sounds like his budding career as a thespian has been taking off!

In early July, we heard Nick had started taking acting classes at a studio in L.A..

The program —  which he attended prior to Bachelor in 2016 — consisted of a four or six week intensive acting course.

This course is said to have included a weekly acting basics class before moving into comedy training.

In his very first class, a source says Nick was required to perform a solo scene in front of an audience of 10 people.

It must have gone well, though, because fast forward a month later and the Wisconsin native is already acting alongside Emmy-winning stars!

Young And The Restless mainstay Kristoff St. John broke the news of the Bachelor’s first film, which apparently features him playing a pilot, judging by his ensemble.

“Yours truly and my main man "The Bachelor's" Nick Viall, working on a movie together,” he captioned a shot of the two of them on set.

He continued, “Details on the movie to be revealed soon. #thebachelor @nickviall #nickviall #nickviall???? #thebachelorette.”

Interestingly, the photo was posted over a week before he and Vanessa announced their split.

It’s unclear what the project is about, and nothing is currently mentioned on Kristoff’s IMDB page.

Still, it’s now evident that the former reality star is not escaping the public consciousness any time soon.

In the spring, Nick defended himself for doing Dancing With the Stars, insisting that he isn’t just chasing fame.

“It's funny, because the opportunities I've been given in The Bachelor world, quite honestly, other than Andi's season, those were opportunities that were presented to me, and I certainly was open to them. It was the right decision,” he maintained.

Stay tuned, folks!
