AceShowbiz - "Nashville" is letting go of %cEric Close%. TVLine learns that the actor who played Theodore 'Teddy' Conrad in the past three seasons won't be returning as a regular member in the upcoming fourth season due to creative reasons to focus the ABC show more on the music business.
Teddy pursued a career in politics. He was once married to %cConnie Britton%'s country queen character Rayna James. In the finale of season 3 airing May 13, he got arrested. There is a chance he will return to the show as a guest because of his close ties to Rayna.
Elsewhere on USA Network's legal drama series "Suits", Eric Close is expected to reprise his role as a lawyer named Travis Tanner for one episode in upcoming fifth season. On the big screen, the actor was last seen in "American Sniper" last year as DIA Agent Snead.
