Phillip Phillips is putting down his guitar and stepping in front of the camera.
On Friday’s episode of “Hawaii Five-0′, the “American Idol” Season 11 winner channels his villainous side as Voss, a diamond smuggler whose on the run from Five-0 after his partner is killed.
In ET’s exclusive clip, it’s clear that Voss will stop at nothing to get his hands on their last batch of contraband: a bag of expensive diamonds. Just when Voss thinks he’s in the clear, the Five-0 team crashes the party, stopping him dead in his tracks. Watch the video above to see what happens next.
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.
The timing of Phillips’ guest spot is pretty perfect. The 27-year-old singer-songwriter is set to release his third studio album, “Collateral”, featuring singles “Miles” and “Magnetic,” on Friday, before going on a U.S. tour from Feb. 9 through April 14.
“Hawaii Five-0” airs Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on Global.
