Country fans know Tim McGraw as a sexy singer and family man with a heart of gold. But he plays completely against type in his major movie debut.
Tim plays the alcoholic, abusive father of a high-school football player - not exactly a role that wins the viewer's sympathies - in the new Friday Night Lights.
Tim, wife Faith Hill, and a slew of other country stars turned out for the premiere, held in Franklin, Tenn. The verdict on Tim's performance? Two big thumbs up from his fellow stars. But when asked how he plans to balance stage and screen, Tim had a ready answer.
"There's not going to be a balance," he said. I'm a musician, that's how I make my living, that's what I love to do."
