Exclusive: Sheryl Crow heads to 'Cougar Town'

Posted on

Sheryl Crow is taking a rare detour into acting with a major recurring role on Cougar Town.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Grammy winning singer-songwriter is set to appear in multiple episodes of the freshman ABC comedy as Grayson’s (Josh Hopkins) new girlfriend.

No further information was available about her character, although I’m told the 47-year-old will not be playing herself.

Crow, who will debut on CT in March, pretty much gave up acting after starring in the 1999 big-screen disappointment The Minus Man. Most recently, she played herself in last May’s charity-single-spoofing episode of 30 Rock.

Thoughts?
