Hugh Sheridan joins Nine’s House Husbands

Hugh Sheridan will join the cast of Nine's Logie-winning House Husbands in 2016.

Sheridan will play Nick Gazecki, Nepean South’s new specialist music teacher.

Sheridan is currently one-third of California Crooners Club, currently playing the Adelaide Fringe Festival.

Still probably best known for his role as Ben Rafter in Packed to the Rafters, which he played from 2008 to 2013, Sheridan's other credits include Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS and The Divorce.

Sheridan said: “I feel very lucky to join the extraordinary team who have created this hit show. I’m pumped to get on set and rock with the cast – I hear they’re a lot of fun.”

Nine’s co-Heads of Drama, Jo Rooney and Andy Ryan, said: “Australia’s favourite House Husbands won’t know what’s hit them when Hugh Sheridan blasts into their world. Hugh is one of Australia’s most popular and gifted actors, and we’re delighted he’s joining Nine as our newest and most intriguing House Husband.”

Produced by Playmaker, House Husbands series five will air on Nine later this year.
