Grammy Award-winning singer Sheryl Crow will shortly be joining gal pal Courteney Cox as a new resident of the ABC comedy series Cougar Town. No, Sheryl will not be playing herself this time, although we certainly think she qualifies for the ‘cougar’ title regardless.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Sheryl Crow will guest star in multiple episodes of Cougar Town as the new girlfriend of Grayson, played by Josh Hopkins. We think it’s a pretty hot casting move. Crow and Hopkins look like they’d be a smoking couple, as long as they can drum up some believable chemistry.

The real question is whether or not Crow can pull it off successfully. Sure, she’s actually appeared in quite a few episodes of various series, but most of the time she’s been on a stage behind a guitar. There was that Minus Man movie a decade ago, but Sheryl Crow basically kind of played herself in that too.

It’ll be interesting to see if Crow can actually play something different in an acting capacity, or if her Cougar Town character will be just another knock-off of the singer herself.
