Looks like Julianne Hough is getting back into the acting business! The two-time Dancing with the Stars champion has been enlisted onto ABC’s freshman comedy Speechless.
The comedy series premiered Sept. 29 and was quickly picked up for a full 22-episode season upon release. Speechless follows the DiMeo family and the unique challenges they face with a son, JJ, suffering from cerebral palsy. The family uproots their lives from a rundown town in exchange for a middle class neighborhood in an attempt to improve their welfare. The family quickly learns that they exchanged their old problems for new ones, tackling them in a sometimes questionable and comical manner.
Hough is set to guest star in the ninth episode of Season One taking on the role of Miss Bloom, a strikingly beautiful young choir teacher to a mute JJ. The network has yet to report on the status of her role as a recurring or solely guest.
Currently acting as a judge for the present season of DWTS, Hough has previously starred in Grease: Live, Burlesque, Footloose, Safe Haven, Rock of Ages, and much more.
