K-Fed’s role in One Tree Hill


Kevin Federline will guest star in a series of shows in the upcoming season of the CW’s One Tree Hill. The aspiring rapper will portray a cocky rock singer, said a publicist for the show.

The ex-Mr Britney Spears is scheduled to begin filming later this week in Wilmington, where the series is filmed. He will appear in a multi-episode story arc.

A spokeswoman for Federline did not immediately return an after-hours message seeking comment. The Web site TMZ.com first reported that Federline would appear in One Tree Hill. This season, the show’s fifth, the characters will age more than four years from last season. The new season is scheduled to begin in midseason, although an exact start date hasn’t been set. — AP
