Now we know what a "cocky, enigmatic frontman" for a legendary rock band looks like: Kevin Federline
with a Mohawk.
's ex donned the spiky 'do for his guest-starring gig
on the CW's One Tree Hill
, according to Extra
, which visited Federline on the set.
"I'm really into the acting thing," Federline tells Extra
. "I'm loving it!"
As are producers, who cast him for a two-episode arc but may want him back for more, calling him a "perfect fit" to play the frontman for No Means Yes, a rock band in the show's fictional setting of Tree Hill, N.C,
"I kind of play this self-obsessed wannabe rock star," he says. "You know, a guy that really takes himself too seriously."
Federline, whose only other credits were a guest spot on CSI: Crime Scene Investigation
and a self-parodizing turn in an insurance commercial, says the new work suits him.
Asked about his music aspirations Federline, who released an album last year, answered: "[I'm] definitely more focused on the acting thing."
