Gray finding her ‘Public’

Songstress on acting track, also optioned by Fuller

“American Idol” finalist Tamyra Gray could soon be returning to Fox — as an actress.

Singer, whose early elimination in the competish generated howls of protest from viewers, is talking to the producers of Fox’s “Boston Public” about coming onboard for a multi-episode arc. Meetings are in the prelim stage, but given TV’s quick turnaround capabilities, it’s not impossible that Gray could pop up as soon as November.

Gray’s recording career is also on track. “Idol” producer Simon Fuller’s 19 Entertainment has already picked up its option to rep Gray and is working on inking her to a recording contract.

All of the top 10 “Idol” finalists, including Gray, are in Las Vegas today taping a concert special set to air on Fox Monday.
