Reba McEntire Starring in New Hit Comedy Movie
McEntire has been a busy lady as of late and even made a cameo in hit comedy movie “Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar.” She says playing Trish, a “water spirit,” in the movie was a lot of fun even for just a brief cameo.
“I’m not advertised as being in the movie. It’s been this secret,” she says in an interview with USA Today. “But afterward my friends were texting me saying, ‘I knew you were going to be Trish.’ That was icing on the cake for me.”
The “Little Rock” and “The Night the Lights Went Out in Georgia” singer says she laughed out loud reading the script.
“I just wanted to know where, when, and what am I going to wear?” she says. “I was so ready and excited to do it.
McEntire, now 65-years-old, has plenty of acting experience. She has starred in hit horror movie “Tremors” and in her own sitcom “Reba.”
