Darius Rucker will showcase another talent TONIGHT as he makes a guest appearance on Hawaii Five-0. As originally reported by Entertainment Weekly, Rucker will play the role of bomb maker and notorious criminal Desmond Abati in the episode airing tonight at 9pm ET/PT on CBS.
“This was an amazing opportunity and, for me, one that challenged me in a different way than being in the studio or on stage does,” shares Rucker. “I can’t wait to see the full episode alongside fans this Friday!”
While it’s not the first time Rucker has showcased his acting chops, playing international criminal Desmond Abati does mark his first time tackling a dramatic role. Rucker’s previous acting credits include a role in the 2001 hit film “Shallow Hal” as well as playing Jesus in an episode of CMT’s Still the King alongside Billy Ray Cyrus.
Rucker’s heartfelt new single, “If I Told You” is currently climbing the country charts. For more information and tour dates visit www.dariusrucker.com.
