Kevin Federline landed a real job: Britney Spears’ ex signed on for a multi-episode guest-starring role on the CW’s One Tree Hill.
In the multi-episode arc, the would-be rapper plays Jason, “a cocky, enigmatic frontman” for No Means Yes, a legendary rock band in the show’s fictional setting of Tree Hill, N.C, according to the network.
“Kevin came in and (auditioned) and he did a great job,” Mark Schwahn, the creator of One Tree Hill, tells People. “He really seemed like a sweet guy and I just felt that he would be great in that.”
Schwahn acknowledges “people will say this smells of stunt casting” because of Federline’s “really high public persona right now.”
“I have to honestly say he was a good fit for the character,” says Schwahn. “I don’t know anything about the kid but he seemed very sweet and very sincere about working hard and embracing the opportunity. It’s just about being good in the role.”
Honestly, I had no idea One Tree Hill was still on television.

Donald Trump claimed he is working on a plan to get Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, and Lindsay Lohan on his upcoming reality show “Celebrity Apprentice.” Although he shot down reports that Rosie O’Donnell might be a contestant, Trump said he’s talking to Britney about the idea, and Paris also expressed interest.
“We’re negotiating with Britney right now. Can you imagine her doing it?” Trump told Page Six. “We’re not sure what will happen. She’s a [bleep]ing mess. And that little reality show she had did nothing. But she likes the idea of being on television and I think she’d be great.” Hilton, he adds, “wants to be on, and we’re thinking about it, but I don’t know if we’re going to do it.”
And Lohan? “Another [bleep]ing mess. We haven’t asked her yet, but I’m going to call her this week. It would a positive thing for her to do . . . for all of them,” he says.
Hilton’s spokesman, Mike Sitrick, said he wasn’t aware of any deal but acknowledged that Trump and Paris’s father, Rick Hilton, are friends. Reps for Spears and Lohan didn’t get back to us.
Trump bragged that he already has a huge list of celebs who are dying to appear, including the likes of Carmen Electra, Kimora Lee Simmons, Joan Rivers, Tony Hawk, Jeff Gordon, George Foreman, and Pete Rose.

Katie Price and her weave launched her new fragrance in London today. “Stunning” is described as “feminine yet strong, and the scent is floral with musky tones,” which means it most likely smells like vag. I’ll pass.

According to Page Six, Justin Timberlake spent this weekend trying to pick up broads in NYC, while his girlfriend, Jessica Biel, worked on a film in LA.
Spies spotted the notorious flirt “sitting with a bronze-skinned brunette with long brown hair all night at a cocktail table near the dance floor” at an HBO party on the roof of the Tribeca Grand. “They were obviously into each other,” said the spy. “It was just the two of them . . . he had no entourage at all.” Another source dished to us, “He is notorious. He will [bleep] anything.”
Well, I guess after you’ve bleeped Britney Spears, there’s really no point in trying to be picky.

Gwyneth Paltrow recently bemoaned the massive amount of paparazzi in Chicago. Gwyneth, who is in Chicago to promote a perfume at Macy’s, arrived in town around the same time as former fiancee Brad Pitt and his baby-mama, Angelina Jolie. Gwyneth claimed Chicago is usually a lovely town to visit because of the lack of photographers.
“When Brad and Angelina leave, won’t they (paparazzi) go, too?” the 34-year-old said.
“Don’t you think they sort of blow in and out with the celebs?”
In 2003 the Oscar-winning actress said she loved coming to Chicago “because there’s no paparazzi.”
Unfortunately for Gwyneth, she’s stuck at the Peninsula Chicago Hotel: the same hotel where the Pitt-Jolie family is holed up.

Oh hey, guess who was arrested again today? Yup, Pete Doherty! Police arrested the troubled singer on Monday in London for suspicion of drug possession.
Doherty, 28, was arrested with two others, a man and a woman, after being stopped in a car in Tower Hamlets in east London.
Doherty had been performing with his band Babyshambles at the V Festival in Staffordshire late on Sunday.
All three were taken to an east London police station where they remain in custody.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: “At 2:30 a.m. officers in Tower Hamlets arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of possessing drugs.”
Doherty was warned by a magistrate earlier this month he faced a prison sentence if he failed to demonstrate he was trying to kick his drugs habit. The singer pleaded guilty in July to possessing crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine.
In other Pete Doherty news: the ladies still love him! He reportedly hooked up with model Irina Lazareanu — the model Pete’s ex, Kate Moss, chose to model her Top Shop collection.
