"Oliver is the — he's my nemesis — but there's always that interesting attraction that comes with that," Britton told Michael Yo on Yahoo's omg! Insider.
Hudson chimed in, saying, "We have a real sort of head-butting relationship. I'm running this label of hers. I'm all L.A., and she's not."
Uh-oh, sounds like bad news for guitarist Deacon Claybourne (Charles Esten), who probably isn't going to boot-scoot his way out of James's life (or heart) that easily. Clearly there needs to be some closure. Hudson agreed, admitting, "She's got to get through a few other men before she gets to me."
And while "Nashville" certainly proves that all that glitters isn't gold, the drama's original music is as legit as it gets. How would Hudson describe his arrogant-businessman character in a country-song title? "Bad guys finish first," Hudson said.
But in real life, Hudson is more of big-hearted family man. He and his wife, Erinn Bartlett, just welcomed their first baby, Rio, in July. But the timing wasn't perfect for Hudson, who admitted that it was emotionally taxing getting cast on a hit show days after his baby girl was born.
"I'll tell you how tough it was — I said, 'Yes, the plane is coming. I gotta get in the car to go to the airport.' I'm sitting in the chair sobbing and bawling like a baby, saying to my wife, 'I'm just gonna call my manager. I don't care what ABC thinks of me. They can never hire me again. I can't do this. I miss my family.' I mean, I literally had a moment of insanity."
Aww, what a softie!
