The actor briefly venture into the music industry in the 1990s after he found fame in hit teen drama Beverly Hills, 90210 – he released a rap album called One Stop Carnival in 1996, but soon returned to the small screen after the record flopped.
Green has now landed a starring role in new TV comedy Wedding Band, playing a member of a musical group who make a living by performing at marriage ceremonies, and he admits the role enables him to live out his fantasy of playing professionally.
He tells the Los Angeles Times, “I get to do music, but I get paid as an actor. It’s not the hope of a cheque if all goes well.”
Green adds of his critically-panned debut album, “I think if I wasn’t on 90210 it would have been looked at differently.”
