Tim McGraw is getting ready for his next movie role, even before Country Strong with Gwenyth Paltrow comes out in theaters. He'll play a spy in Safe House with Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds.  Filming begins soon in South Africa and the movie should be out in February 2012. McGraw says he's looking forward to the action packed film where he'll get to shoot people.

Country Stong, by the way, is set to hit theaters January 7th. With all the acting Tim is doing, where will he find time to tour or record new music?  Sounds like you'll have to go to the theaters if you want to see or hear Tim McGraw next year rather than a stage near you.
