Nick Viall To Make TV Acting Debut Opposite Minnie Driver

‘The Bachelor ‘star has booked a guest role on ABC comedy ‘Speechless’.

It looks like Nick Viall isn’t done with the spotlight just yet .

Despite previously telling Entertainment Tonight that he did not want to be famous, the former Bachelor star is gearing up to guest-star opposite Minnie Driver on ABC’s sitcom Speechless.

“Nick will play a hunky B-movie actor who takes his craft way to seriously,” according to a network source.

“After befriending JJ (Micah Fowler) on set, ‘Tyson” summons up all his powers for a performance of a lifetime, deceiving Maya and Jimmy to get JJ out of hot water”.

The reality star’s episode is scheduled to shoot next week and air in late November.

The announcement of his guest star role comes just weeks after he announced his split from fiancé and season 21 Bachelor winner Vanessa Grimaldi.

Speechless marks the fifth ABC Network television show that Viall will appear on.

The former ‘Bachelorette’ and ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ also appeared on ‘Dancing With the Stars’ almost immediately after his stint on ‘The Bachelor’
