It's the challenge, the "rush" of doing something outside his comfort zone. Trace Adkins says that's why he's doing some acting.

The movie he's in now, "The Lincoln Lawyer," opens in fourth place at the weekend box office.

He plays a member of a biker gang. Adkins says he's met some biker-types through the years. He says he's "played enough beer joints" in his life, that he's "hung out with them and gotten to know them."

Adkins says he has some other acting jobs in the works but he's "an old jock" so he's superstitious and doesn't want to "talk about stuff until it's done."
