Connie Britton On 'Girls?' 'Nashville' Star Almost Appeared In Season 3 (REPORT)


Connie Britton on "Girls"? It almost happened.

According to the New York Post, the "Nashville" and "Friday Night Lights" star almost joined Lena Dunham, Allison Williams and the rest of Brooklyn ladies for a Season 3 guest stint.

While on the set of Britton's upcoming film, "This Is Where I Leave You," which also stars "Girls's" Adam Driver, the actress was reportedly heard saying she had a guest appearance lined up for Season 3, but couldn't get it scheduled.

"She is bummed about it," an insider told the Post.

Bummed she may be, but Britton has a lot on her plate. Not only does she star on ABC's "Nashville" as country star Rayna James, but she's advocating for a "Friday Night Lights" movie.

"I would love it to happen. I'm a big supporter of it happening. I don't know if we will see it or not," she told E! in April. "I know it was being written and [show creator] Peter Berg is really serious about so I think if everybody got on board, I don't see why we couldn't have a movie."

Season 3 of "Girls" will premiere in January 2014 and "Nashville" Season 2 will premiere in the fall, airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET on ABC.
