Darius Rucker Will Attend His High School Reunion

Darius Rucker will attend his high school reunion this weekend. With a concert-free schedule, he gets to do what he has only gotten to do once in his year since high school. Darius told us in an interview this week (4/10), "The last one I went to was 1994, my ten-year reunion. We (Hootie and The Blowfish) were just breaking, and that was the first one I went to." Darius with Hootie bandmates Jim Sonefeld and Mark Bryan a special screening of TNT's "The Goodbye Girl" at Cinema 1, January 12, 2004, in New York City.

His High School Buddies Rucker told us he still keeps in touch with some from his high school days. He offered, "I'm excited. I have like five guys, my buddies that I went to high school with, and we still talk every day. So, we're all looking forward to going together and having a good time." The country star hopes he gets to be himself and not a famous singer when he gets to the reunion in South Carolina. He told us, "I'll let you know how it is. I hope it doesn't turn into a meet and greet. I hope it's just a bunch of friends havng fun. But, I'm gonna have fun."

Darius plays a detective and does some acting, something he's been dabbling in the last year with a role on ABC's Big Sky. In a recent interview, Rucker told us about acting: "I love acting. It's a lot of fun. The actors you get to act with are so giving and make it so easy for you." His "Inner Stabler" He noted of his video, "That video...when they told me I wasn't gonna do a performance, I was so happy because that's so cliché people acting and you do the performance. When they told me I was gonna be a detective, I put on my inner Stabler because I'm such a Law & Order and CSI fan." Darius admits he would love to do much more acting, but he will see how things go. He said, "That was a lot of fun, and I'd love to do a lot more of that, so we'll see if it comes. If it comes, I'll take it, and if it doesn't, I'll keep doing this music thing and stick with that."
