Morgan with the stars of "Rizzoli & Isles"Craig Morgan has established a pretty sweet TV career in addition to his successful country-music endeavors--the singer has just started the third season of his reality show Craig Morgan: All Access Outdoors, and has made cameo appearances on various other shows such as Army Wives. However, he's never actually played anyone but himself to date.
However, Morgan can now add "actor" in good faith to his list of talents! On Tuesday, he made his first scripted TV appearance on TNT's crime drama Rizzoli & Isles. Morgan played Dr. Billy Ray Higgins, a medical examiner who comes to Boston for a symposium...and ends up helping leads Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) with a murder case.
You can check him out in this clip--what do you think? We think he's a natural!
The air date of the show coincided with Morgan's 48th birthday. Not a bad way to celebrate, eh?
For those who can't get enough of Morgan hanging out with Angie Harmon--whom he counts as a good pal--there's always his music video for "This Ole Boy," which stars the beautiful actress playing his love interest. The single is off his latest album of the same name, also featuring latest single "Corn Star."
