Connick will make his debut as the mysterious horseman who comes to the rescue of a fallen Grace in last season’s finale.

Clay Busby in “Memphis Belle.” He went on to star opposite Jodie Foster in “Little Man Tate” and co-starred as the psychopathic mass murder stalking Sigourney Weaver in “Copycat.” Connick’s other feature credits include “Hope Floats” and the summer blockbuster “Independence Day.”
