Country singer Tim McGraw once again will test his acting skill in a feature film as he is tapped to star in "The Blind Side". The 41-year-old, who has shared screen with Reese Witherspoon in "Four Christmases", is set to star opposite Sandra Bullock, playing her on-screen husband by the name of Sean Touhy.

In addition to sharing scene with Bullock, the husband of country songstress Faith Hill will also be joined by Kathy Bates in the movie. He is expected to take part in the film's production when the principal photography begins later this month in Atlanta.

"The Blind Side" is based on Michael Lewis' best-selling book, "The Blind Side: Evolution of the Game". Inspired by the true story of Michael Oher, it follows a homeless African-American teenager who befriends a wealthy family and grows up to be an offensive lineman for the Ole Miss football team. This 20th Century Fox movie is penned and directed by John Lee Hancock for a 2011 release.

Famous for his musical talent, Tim McGraw has made several acting attempts. Since his first acting stint in a 1995 episode of "The Jeff Foxworthy Show", the three-time Grammy-winning singer has appeared in a number of TV shows as well as feature films. His feature credits include "Flicka", "Friday Night Lights" and "The Kingdom".

I can't get enough of this movie!!! I never saw it on screen but lost count of how many times on HBO. It has got to be one of the most emotional treats of our time. Sandra Bullock richly deserved the Oscar for her performance.......SJ was one of the cutest kids I have seen in a very long time. I could not believe it was Tim McGraw playing the husband............he did an excellent job. I probably should buy the DVD and play it on my computer (when I am supposed to be working). This is like the movie "Working Girl"..another one of my all time favorite flicks.

She is a good actress - (in Midnight Bayou as the villain). What is her part in this movie with S. Bullock? And how long has she been around?
