Kevin Federline Lands 'One Tree Hill' Guest-Star Role

K-Fed is going 'Tree' climbing. 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'll appear in a multi-episode story arc.

A spokeswoman for Federline did not immediately return an after-hours message seeking comment. The Web site 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 show stars Chad Michael Murray as Lucas Scott and James Lafferty as his half brother, Nathan Scott. Other stars are Hilarie Burton, Sophia Bush and Bethany Joy Galeotti.

The new season is scheduled to begin in midseason, although an exact start date hasn't been set.
