“Nick will play a hunky B-movie actor who takes his craft way too seriously,” according to the network. “After befriending JJ (Micah Fowler) on a set, ‘Tyson’ summons all his powers for the performance of a lifetime, deceiving Maya and Jimmy to get JJ out of hot water.”

Speechless marks the fifth ABC TV show Nick has starred on, as the former Bachelor In Paradise and Bachelorette star appeared on Dancing With The Stars almost immediately after his time on The Bachelor.
