‘Flashpoint’ Actor Rocks At Work

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One multi-talented actor is singing his TV show’s praises – literally.

Hugh Dillon plays a Canadian task force cop in CBS’s 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 he’s 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, “It’s been an amazing collaborative effort to get my music on the show.”

Dillon hasn’t 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, “I’m gonna get [co-star] Enrico Colantoni to direct it!”

Flashpoint’s second season premieres tomorrow (Jan. 9) on CBS.
