Exclusive: Sheryl Crow heads to 'Cougar Town'

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?

    God help us if it turns out to be a “Julianne Moore on 30 Rock” situation. I can’t take both of my favorite sitcoms being trashed by bad characters.

      AMEN to that..Edward Norton on Modern Family ring a bell for anyone?

      • amj

        I actually found that funny!

      • Moe

        WHAT?! Your crazy, Edward Norton was hilarious on Modern Family and is a BRILLIANT actor.

  • Melanie

    I bet she’ll be great! :)

  • Dee

    I have no idea why but I read that as “Cheryl Cole” and got excited. Disappointed now

  • Eliza_kb

    Nooooooooooo!!!!!!! It should be Grayson & Jules!!

    • amj

      Absolutely! That was my first reaction too. But, I believe if they hook them up officially it will be much later in the series. Too early to hook Jules to one man.

  • graeme

    Holy crap. That’s awesome.

  • Mia

    she’s Courteney’s friend!
    YAY!

    • diiana

      yeah, me and grayson should happen first

  • Michael

    Ugh…Why? Why? Why? There are so many actresses that could play this role. Why did they pick her?

    • Maureen

      Because she and Courteney Cox are good friends.

  • Josh Emerson

    Sweet! I like Sheryl Crow. This should be good.

  • Andrea

    She’s been acting forever, why not?

    • Are you for Real?

      The article actually says this which means that no she hasn’t: “Crow, who will debut on CT in March, pretty much gave up acting after starring in the 1999 big-screen disappointment The Minus Man. “

  • Wes

    Perfect! She can get in on the running gag of making up songs in the neighborhood.

  • Meg

    Sure. Of course. Let’s give her something to do.

  • Dryden

    Wow, lots of surprise hate for Crow. I don’t get it. And hey, if it leads to more screentime for Grayson, I’m all for it. More Hopkins shirtlessness!

  • Lisa

    Cool!!
    She’s very good friends with Courteney, so besides the fun they’ll have filming, I’m sure will transfer to the screen.

  • Joe

    Sheryl’s an extremely talented woman, and her last album was one of her absolute best. She was actually very good in The Minus Man … I bet she’ll be do a good job.

  • Buddy

    She was good in The Minus Man. That was an overlooked film. Lots of great performances, most notably Owen Wilson’s.
