Hugh Dillon plays a Canadian task force cop in CBSs drama Flashpoint, and is also a musician, formerly of Canadian rock band The Headstones.
Dillon now fronts a group called the Hugh Dillon Redemption Choir, and hes putting his musical skills to good use at his acting gig.
He wrote a song that was used on an episode of Flashpoint and was thrilled when producers went to bat for him and convinced CBS to give his music a shot.
He explains, Its been an amazing collaborative effort to get my music on the show.
Dillon hasnt gotten inspiration for a song directly from the cop drama just yet, but jokes that a Flashpoint music video for his song Lost At Sea may be dropping soon.
He laughs, Im gonna get [co-star] Enrico Colantoni to direct it!
Flashpoints second season premieres tomorrow (Jan. 9) on CBS.
