Americana star Jason Isbell is set to make his acting debut in the upcoming Western film based on the television series "Deadwood."

Featured as a musician playing a guitar in the background, Isbell joined the cast last November to shoot his scenes. "Don't call it a western," he captioned a picture of himself on set.

Costar, W. Earl Brown took to Twitter to reveal that the three days in which Isbell joined the set were "a big Ol Musical Lovefest" and that the whole crew had wonderful jamming sessions during his time there.

"I've known Jason since he was in the [Drive-By] Truckers," Brown told Rolling Stone. "When the movie happened, I got a text from him, 'Is this for real?' And I said, 'Yeah, it looks like it is gonna [happen].' We hadn't got the firm green-light at that point."

Created by David Milch, the film is set to premiere on HBO on May 31.
