Reba McEntire signed on for a cameo in the new comedy Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar , but she kept her appearance under wraps until the film debuted last weekend.
Reba’s role is Trish, a “fun-lovin’ water spirit” who saves two best friends — main characters Barb and Star, played by Annie Mumolo and Kristen Wiig , respectively — from drowning during their vacation. “I’m not advertised as being in this movie, it’s been this secret,” the singer tells USA Today . “But afterward my friends were texting me saying, ‘I knew you were gonna be Trish.’ That was the icing on the cake for me.”
On Twitter, she shared a few behind-the-scenes snapshots of her transformation into the character.
