The 26-year-old actor just wrapped up his first season on Lifetime’s Army Wives as Private Truman.
“There’s a pivotal scene where I’m in one of the towers, and I pick up a machine gun, and I end up firing at the enemy and ultimately end up saving this platoon,” Jesse dished about the season finale, which aired earlier this month. “But when I come home, something terrible happens to Tim, and he can’t get over it, and he suffers from posttraumatic stress disorder which is something a lot of our soldiers go through.”
He added, “[It] made you think about what these people actually go through and what they actually give.”
The 25-year-old actor/singer recently announced he is working on a new album which is due out this fall, according to On Air with Ryan Seacrest.
“I’ve definitely experienced some things regarding relationships that I never really experienced before,” Jesse shared about the inspiration for his next album during the interview. “For the most part I kind of wanted to make it a record that was just sort of a slice of life.”
In the meantime, be sure to catch Jesse McCartney on Army Wives every Sunday at 9/8c on Lifetime!
Jesse shared in his cover story, “I’m writing and producing my fourth album. I’ve been working on a tons of new music all across the board. Some pop stuff, some R&B stuff. There will be a lot more material.”
