While his ex-wife Britney Spears continously attempts to dig herself out from under a pile of nonsense, Kevin Federline is slowly piecing together the type of career his old lady could never achieve. According to Hollywood.com (via In Touch Weekly), Federline has booked a gig in the new Keanu Reeves flick Night Watch. Although, technically, this isn't his first big-screen role (he played a dancer in You Got Served), this will be his first film that people might actually like. Go Kev! No word yet on who he's playing, but so far it's being described as a "small, but notable" role. Based on the film's description, I can take a few guesses as to who this dancer-turned-golddigger-turned-actor might be playing.

Plot revolves around a veteran LAPD cop (Reeves) who becomes an alcoholic following the death of his wife. When his former mentor (Forest Whitaker) frames him for the murder of a fellow officer (K-Fed???), our cop must find a way out of the jam that's been created for him. If I had to take a wild guess, I'd say K-Fed will either play that cop that's killed (while undercover as the worst white rapper in history??) or some meaningless street thug who knows more than he's letting on. Hugh Laurie, Chris Evans, Naomie Harris and Common also star, and since we're looking at another gritty LAPD-related thriller, there's only one man capable of delivering the goods -- writer-director David Ayer. Based on a story by James Ellroy (L.A. Confidential), who also helped co-write the screenplay, Night Watch (previously known as The Night Watchman) is set to hit theaters sometime next year.
