Hunky country star Blake Shelton looks mighty good on those videos of his like “Home” and “Hillbilly Bone,” and would appear to have acting potential as well. No wonder he’s had some inquiries from Hollywood.
So, does he want to add film or TV work to his resume? “I don’t’ want to say I don’t have any interest in it,” he tells us. “But it’s not something I’ll pursue. If something came my way that looked like a good fit, it might be fun. But I’m just getting to point where I always wanted to be,” he adds, referring to his music career. “So I want to completely concentrate on what I do, now more than ever.”
Shelton will be touring all summer, he says. “We pretty much tour anyway, at least one gig a week, even in the down season. But when June rolls around, it’ll be most of the time until September.”
THE BIG SCREEN SCENE: Tom Sizemore keeps managing to get work despite his time behind bars, in rehab, and all over the tabloid media. The latest is a low-budget picture called “Visible Scars” in which he’ll play “a hermit serial killer” according to casting notices. They’re filling the roles of his potential next victim and of the ghosts of twin girls who were abducted 17 years ago. The action takes place in cabin in the wilderness.
FEELING A LITTLE SICK: Just when you think you’ve heard it all, here comes a new reality show called “Virus Hunters,” featuring real-life stories of people who’ve contracted ailments that pose a threat to the greater population. Casting is underway for actors to portray people who have a virus. “I hope this is the bottom,” responded one actor we know, “because if they’re going lower, I’m going to have to leave.”
