The actor behind Special Agent Timothy McGee shares with fans his favorite album of 2021. It may surprise you!
The year is winding down and people are making their Top 10 Album of the Year lists for social media. It is a fun tradition that I love taking part in. There is always so much music being released, and I enjoy sharing my favorites with others. “NCIS: Los Angeles” star Sean Murray does too!
Murray’s latest tweet declares his official selection for album of the year: “CALL ME IF YOU GET LOST” by Tyler, the Creator.
For fans who are not familiar with the record, it is the artist’s sixth studio album release. Tyler, the Creator blends many musical genres, but predominately writes hip-hop music. Artists like Pharrell Williams and Lil Wayne are featured on some tracks, which are fun collaborations for fans to hear. The album makes its debut at number 1 on the US Billboard 200 chart and earns Tyler, the Creator a Grammy nomination for Best Rap Album.
The “NCIS” star loves Tyler, the Creator, as well as rap itself. On the Greatest Music of All Time podcast, Murray discusses five more of his favorite albums. Jay-Z’s “The Blueprint” and Outkast’s “ATLiens” are both on his list.
‘NCIS’ Star Sean Murray’s Connection to Music
“I’m basically a music nerd, especially when it comes to electronic music,” Murray shares with Forbes Magazine. Music has always meant so much to me. I had a cousin who was in a speed metal band in the 80s. He introduced me to Metallica when I was a young kid. ‘Ride the Lightning,’ ‘Master of Puppets’ and ‘Justice for All’ are the magic of true old school Metallica.”
A self-described music nerd, the actor also plays multiple instruments.
“I have actually got a lot of equipment that I muck around with creating sounds. I can also play a little piano, drum machines and synthesizers,” he says.
Sean Murray on his Acting Career
In a 2017 interview with Forbes Magazine, the actor discusses his acting career with humility. Because he’s such a busy actor, Murray says he never feels bored.
“I’ve never gotten bored and I don’t think any of us have,” he says. “We are always trying to make the show better and keep it interesting. Because of that, it keeps us awake and reaching as opposed to letting things get static.”
With now 19 seasons under his belt, the actor is exciting to continue moving forward with his role.
“At the beginning of the show McGee started as rookie agent,” Murray says. “As the show progressed, we’ve seen him grown from sort of a bumbling, socially awkward mess to someone who can lead investigations and has been given a lot of responsibility.”
