Kevin Federline lands a job, a guest starring role in the upcoming season of the CW's "One Tree Hill."
Britney Spears' ex-man is jobless no more. Kevin Federline lands a job, finally. The failed rapper has landed a recurring role in the upcoming fifth season of the CW's teen drama "One Tree Hill."
The network announced K-Fed addition to the series' cast Monday August 20th, confirmed that he will portray the role of Jason, described as "a cocky, enigmatic frontman" for No Means Yes, a legendary rock band in the show's fictional setting of Tree Hill, N.C.
K-Fed is scheduled to begin filming his part later this week in Wilmington, where the series is being filmed.
"Kevin came in and (auditioned) and he did a great job," Mark Schwahn, the creator of "One Tree Hill," tells People. "He really seemed like a sweet guy and I just felt that he would be great in that."
K-Fed, a back-up dancer and wannabe rapper, also guest-starred on an episode of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" last year, playing a young thug named Cole Tritt. "One Tree Hill", elsewhere, stars the likes of Chad Michael Murray, James Lafferty, Hilarie Burton, Sophia Bush, and Bethany Joy Galeotti.
