Marc Anthony to guest on ‘Hawthorne’

Singer to play cop who falls for Jada Pinkett Smith

Even though he won’t be singing, Marc Anthony will making sweet music with Jada Pinkett Smith when he appears on her TNT’s series “Hawthorne.”

Anthony said his character falls for Smith’s Christina, a hard-working chief nurse in a hospital.

“Sparks fly. I think he has a crush on Christina and … you’re gonna have to watch it!” he said in a phone interview on Monday.

Anthony plays Detective Nick Renata, a New York City cop who is investigating a kidnapping in Richmond, where “Hawthorne” is based.

“I realized right there that Christina needed a man,” he said, laughing.

Anthony has acted quite a bit before, even starring with wife Jennifer Lopez in the 2006 film “El cantante,” in which he portrayed legendary salsa singer Hector Lavoe.

Though he’s in the middle of a tour for his Spanish album “Iconos,” Anthony said he “absolutely” wants to keep on acting. Working with Pinkett Smith, he realized how fulfilling it is for him.

“I feel more capable than ever,” he said.
