Bill Engvall may be best known as a stand-up kind of guy (he started the Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Jeff Foxworthy), but he”s looking to get serious. And on a three episode arc of TNT”s “HawthoRNe” (Tues. 10 p.m. EST), he”s doing exactly that. As Internal Affairs investigator Jimmy Dupree, he”s sniffing around the very bad (but hey, pretty justified) behavior of Det. Nick Renata (Marc Anthony) following an attack on Christina (Jada Pinkett Smith). HitFix spoke to an upbeat Engvall (“If I felt any better I”d be twins,” he joked) about his dramatic future, his Angie Harmon dreams and why there isn”t likely to be a Blue Collar reunion anytime soon.
Any chance we”ll see more of Jimmy?
Why not? If you can’t dream big, get out!
