Kevin Federline's rap career may never get off the ground, but at least Mr. Britney Spears is trying to expand his career horizons. K-Fed, who made his nationally televised rap debut performance last Sunday at the Teen Choice Awards, is now gearing up for his debut as a TV actor on America's top-rated drama, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
While on the set of the show, Federline told People about the suddenness of the offer, and his excitement over the project.
"This is pretty much my first time acting. It's the first time I've actually had a speaking role. I was doing stuff for the Teen Choice Awards and got the call while we were rehearsing and I pissed in my pants! I was excited right off the bat. It's the only show that I really, really watch," said K-Fed.
Fans of Federline and his wife may remember their last foray into broadcast TV, a reality show fittingly titled Britney & Kevin: Chaotic, which aired on UPN in 2005. But in order to take on CSI, Federline knows me must rely on his instincts.
"I just read the script. They told me they wanted it to be more of a natural thing that comes to me," he said.
Spears' spouse will reportedly play a threatening teen who badgers investigators Nick Stokes and Warrick Brown. We would have guessed more along the lines of struggling, hyper-fertile rapper, but that's just us.
Federline's acting had better be better than his rapping, otherwise CSI might be showing signs of jumping the shark. Seriously. Is there really an actor shortage bad enough that CBS has to dial up Kevin Federline?
