LOS ANGELES (AP) - Marc Anthony is joining wife Jennifer Lopez as a TV regular, but he’s taking the dramatic route.

The Grammy-winning salsa star will become a cast member on TNT’s “Hawthorne,” playing police Detective Nick Renata. He appeared as the character in two episodes last season.

The medical series that stars Jada Pinkett Smith as Christina Hawthorne, a hospital’s chief nursing officer, returns for its third season in June.

Lopez already is on the air as a judge on Fox’s “American Idol.” The couple starred together in the film “El Cantante,” about the life of salsa pioneer Hector Lavoe.

Anthony’s other film credits include Martin Scorsese’s “Bringing Out the Dead” and “Man on Fire.”
