It was just a regular day for the staff at Metropolis Hair Fashions on Kingston Pike; regular that is until a familiar face walked through the door. The man dressed in Wrangler jeans, boots and a gray t-shirt was as unsuspecting as the next guy except for the fact you can see him on T.V. every week. His name is Muse Watson and he’s been a long-time client of Metropolis Salon. Actually, the entire Watson family, Muse, his wife and daughter, are clients of the Salon.
Muse’ wife became a client of Metropolis co-owner Scott Stuart long before she and Muse were married. She often told stories of Muse and his accomplishments on her visits to the salon. Stories almost too good to be true and Stuart wondered if this mysterious boyfriend even existed. One day, that all changed when she called to schedule an appointment for Muse. Muse and Scott met and have been friends ever since.
Muse has an active Hollywood career today that prevents him from making frequent Metropolis visits. Most of his time is spent in Los Angeles shooting scenes for shows like the CBS series, NCIS where he plays NIS agent Mike Franks, who is Gibbs’s (Mark Harmon) character mentor. He has also had roles in Prison Break and I Know What You Did Last Summer.
When he does get some time to relax, he heads for the “hide-out”, a 60 acre farm at the foot of the Smoky Mountains in Roane County. Although a Louisiana native, Watson has a long time connection to East Tennessee that dates back to when he moved to Oak Ridge, TN after attending Berea College in Berea, KY. Muse went to work as a driver for a nuclear fuel company and while living there met his wife. Despite all the Hollywood success, Muse and his family escape to East Tennessee every chance they get.
