Darius Rucker, along with Lyle Lovett, are joining Reba McEntire on the ABC-TV hit, Big Sky: Deadly Trails this season.
Darius will play the character of “Possum,” and according to the character synopsis, he will portray “a hired gun who works at night like his nocturnal namesake.” Lyle will play his partner “Tex,” described as a “well-mannered cowboy and tracking specialist with a hidden menacing side.”
Reba stars in the show alongside her real-life boyfriend, actor Rex Linn (CSI Miami; Better Call Saul). The pair play a husband-wife duo, who own a glamping business called “Sunny Day Excursions.” “Sunny” and “Buck” are smack dab in the middle of the missing persons-murder-mystery. The show centers around Sheriff Beau Arlen, portrayed by Jensen Ackles (Supernatural, The Boys), private detective Cassie Dewell (Kylie Bunbury–Game Night, Tut, Under the Dome), undersheriff Jenny Hoyt (Katheryn Winnick-Bones, Vikings) as they try to maintain law and order in Helena, Montana.
Big Sky airs on Thursdays at 9pm CT/10pm ET on ABC.
