Now we know what a “cocky, enigmatic frontman” for a legendary rock band looks like: Kevin Federline with a Mohawk.

Britney Spears‘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.”
