In a day filled with the many emotions Phillip Phillips brought his fans through the songs on newly released Collateral, Phillip found just one more way to surprises us all. Indeed, in an awesome,
brilliant move, Phillip made his TV acting debut to celebrate the new album and maybe to announce to the world that there is whole lot of Phillip still to discover in years to come.
As ET Canada reported, “This isn’t the first time Phillips has appeared on a scripted television series, however. He guest starred on CBS’ “Pure Genius” in 2016 as himself, but “Hawaii Five-0” marks his true acting debut portraying a fictional character.” A self-confessed movie and TV buff, Phillip has always shown a strong storytelling inclination in his lyrics, and using stories, both fictional and real, as inspiration for his music. It’s not hard to see how he would be interested in exploring a fictional world through acting. Playing diamond smuggler Voss, Phillip showed his scary, steely determined side, to the shock of many fans used to Phillip’s down-to-earth goofy humour. We think he was a great bad guy and a fantastic choice of show! Watch a short preview of the episode below. And visit CBS to watch this and other episodes of Hawaii Five-0.
