Reba McEntire Has More Acting Roles She Wants To Try: “I Love to Entertain People”

When it comes to acting, Reba McEntire wants to do it all. And why not?

Reba is currently in the midst of shooting her new television series, Red Blooded, in Madison, Ga. The hour-long drama, from creator Marc Cherry (Desperate Housewives, Devious Maids), has Reba starring as Sheriff Ruby Adair, who is dealing with a suspected act of terrorism that happens at a Fourth of July parade in the small town of Oxblood, Ky.

While our favorite redhead is knee deep in playing a small town sheriff, it’s not the only role she sees herself playing.

“A dream role would be ten different kinds because I would like to hit all facets—the kooky neighbor down the hall or the heroine in a western,” said Reba. “There are a lot of times when I go to movies and I say, ‘Why didn’t they cast me for that part? I could have done that!” There’s just so many different types. I love to watch television. I love movies. So acting is something that entertains me. Television and movies entertain me. I love to be entertained, but I also love to entertain people. By watching that, I want to get in there and do it myself.”

No word yet on when the show will hit the small screen.
