Keep Scrolling To See Some Of Reba McEntire’s Best Roles In Movies & TV Shows

Tremors – 1990

Reba starred in her first movie in 1990. Titled Tremors, the comedy horror film also featured Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter, and Michael Gross.

Reba and Michael played married survivalists Burt and Heather Gummer. The movie put Reba on the map as an actress, and many other acting opportunities soon followed.

The Gambler Returns: The Luck Of The Draw – 1991

Reba starred alongside fellow country music singer Kenny Rogers in the 1991 made-for-TV movie The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw. She played a feisty character named Burgundy Jones.

While on set, Reba met another actor who played a small role in the movie. They remained friends for the next several decades.

That actor was none other than her now-boyfriend, Rex Linn! The duo reconnected in 2020 and began a romantic relationship. They’ve been inseparable ever since.

The Fox And The Hound 2 – 2006

Reba did a small amount of voiceover work before she landed a role in the 2006 animated film The Fox and the Hound 2. She lent her voice to a character named Dixie, a dog in a musical group called The Singin’ Strays.

Naturally, Reba sang in the film too! She recorded a song called “Good Doggy, No Bone!” for the movie’s official soundtrack.

The Fox and the Hound 2 also featured the voices of stars such as Patrick Swayze, Jeff Foxworthy, Vicki Lawrence, and Jim Cummings.

Charlotte’s Web – 2006

Reba had another large voiceover role in 2006. She voiced a cow named Betsy in a movie adaptation of the book Charlotte’s Web.

Her co-stars included Dakota Fanning, Julia Roberts, Steve Buscemi, Oprah Winfrey, Kathy Bates, and Robert Redford.

The film differed from the 1973 animated adaptation, since Betsy and most of the animals were real animal actors. The characters Charlotte and Templeton were the exceptions.

Reba – 2001 To 2007

Reba’s namesake sitcom started in 2001 and ran until 2007, for a total of six seasons and 127 episodes.

The show followed Reba as Reba Hart, a newly single mom after discovering her husband, Brock, was having an affair with his dental hygenist, Barbara Jean. Brock goes on to marry Barbara Jean, who is pregnant with his child at the start of the series.

Reba’s eldest daughter, Cheyenne, also gets pregnant during her senior year of high school. Her boyfriend (and eventually, husband) Van, moves into Reba’s house, adding further to the chaos in her life.

The heartwarming and hilarious series also starred Melissa Peterman (Barbara Jean), Christopher Rich (Brock), JoAnna García (Cheyenne) Steve Howey (Van), Scarlett Pomers (Kyra), and Mitch Holleman (Jake).

Reba and her co-stars have said they’d love to reunite and reboot the show someday!

Malibu Country – 2012 To 2013

Reba’s second sitcom, Malibu Country, debuted in 2012. She played a character named Reba MacKenzie, who moves to California after divorcing her cheating husband. At her new home in Malibu, Reba works to revitalize her country music career and begin a new phase in life.

Lily Tomlin played Reba’s mother Lillie Mae. Blake Shelton had a guest role as Reba’s brother, also named Blake.

Malibu Country was canceled after just one season (containing 18 episodes) and ended in 2013.

Young Sheldon – 2020 To 2022

Reba had a recurring role in the TV series Young Sheldon. She played a hairdresser named June, who befriends Sheldon’s meemaw. Reba appeared in multiple episodes between seasons three and five.

Reba’s friend Melissa Peterman and boyfriend Rex Linn also have recurring roles in the series.

Barb And Star Go To Vista Del Mar – 2021

Reba was secretly cast as the water spirit Trish in the 2021 comedy movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar. Her role was not advertised in advance, so no one knew she was in the movie until it came out!

Reba loved the costume and long red wig she wore to play Trish. She shared some behind-the-scenes photos on social media to show how she got ready.

Big Sky – 2022 To 2023

Reba got the chance to star alongside her boyfriend Rex Linn in the third season of the ABC crime drama series Big Sky. They played a married couple named Buck and Sunny Barnes, who have something to hide behind their friendly facades.

Rex convinced Reba to take on the “dark” role. While it was a departure from the characters she typically plays, fans raved about her performance.

Reba McEntire’s The Hammer – 2023

Reba and Rex co-starred in another project in 2023…the Lifetime movie The Hammer. The film featured Reba as Judge Kim Wheeler, while Rex played a character named Bart Crawford.

They also got the chance to act alongside Melissa Peterman again. She played Kim’s sister, Kris.

Reba is definitely open to starring in more projects with Rex. The two of them talk “all the time” about acting in a Western together, which we’d love to see!

For now, Reba’s future NBC sitcom seems to be her next project.
