Amurri has been cast as the younger version of Dottie Cantrell Roman, who will be played in the present day by Susan Sarandon, Amurri’s mother. Amurri will make her debut in the premiere episode. She joins previously announced stars Sarandon, Beth Ditto, Trace Adkins, Anna Friel, Joshua Sasse, Meagan Holder, Inigo Pascual, Martha Higareda, and Emma Milani.
The series follows America’s “first family” of country music, including mother Dottie Cantrell Roman (Sarandon), father Albie Roman (Adkins) and daughters Gigi Taylor-Roman (Ditto) and Nicolette “Nicky” Roman (Friel), and son Luke Roman (Sasse).
This is not the first time Amurri has filled in as a younger version of her mother onscreen. She previously did so in the films “Dead Man Walking” and “That’s My Boy.” She has also starred alongside her mother
