Dwight Yoakam is certainly best known as a country singer, but he has several acting credits under his belt (Crank: High Voltage, Panic Room, Sling Blade, and “Wilfred” to name a few) and is about to add another.
Per TV Guide, Yoakam has joined the cast of CBS’s “Under the Dome” for Season 2 and will play Lyle Chumley, who runs Chester’s Mill’s barbershop, the Two Scissors.
Lyle has a complicated history with Big Jim (Dean Norris), having once been romantically linked with his dead wife, Pauline (Sherry Stringfield). Like Pauline, Lyle has a mysterious connection to the Dome and very well may know the answer to its origins.
Yoakam will recur in multiple episodes of the show. He joins other Season 2 newcomers Stringfield, Eddie Cahill, Grace Victoria Cox, and Karla Crome.
“Under the Dome,” which returns on Monday, June 30th, with a Stephen King-penned episode, stars Mike Vogel (Barbie), Colin Ford (Joe), Alexander Koch (Junior), Rachelle Lefevre (Julia), Natalie Martinez (Linda), Dean Norris (Big Jim), Mackenzie Lintz (Norrie), and Britt Robertson (Angie).
