Welcome to Nashville, Christian Coulson! The actor has joined the cast of the TV drama for Season 5.

Deadline reports that Coulson will play Damien George, a "confident and, by turns, charming and caustic," in-demand British director; George will be in charge of Gunnar Scott (Sam Palladio) and Scarlett O'Connor (Clare Bowen)'s first music video.

"He has a specific vision for his work," the character description continues, "and gets off on pushing the limits of actors to achieve that vision."

Harry Potter fans will recognize Coulson: He portrayed Tom Riddle in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets. His other credits include Nurse Jackie and The Good Wife, among others.

Coulson will be one of a number of new faces in the Nashville cast when the show's fifth season premieres on Jan 5; the two-hour premiere will air beginning at 9PM ET. CMT picked up the show for a fifth season in early June, following ABC’s cancellation of Nashville in mid-May, and thanks in part to fan demand.
