BRITNEY SPEARS' husband KEVIN FEDERLINE may still only be a fledgling pop star, but he is already eyeing a career on the big screen.

Although Federline is trying to establish himself as a singer by performing at the TEEN CHOICE AWARDS on 20 August (06) and releasing an album, he insists he's ready to try out acting. However, he didn't even make it to his first audition. He tells American publication In Touch, "I've already been offered a couple of scripts. The most interesting one was a role as a drug dealer, starring BEN AFFLECK's brother (CASEY). "I was supposed to audition, but I got really sick and couldn't make it" Federline says he's interested in pursuing all types of roles,adding, "Sometimes I wake up in a comedic mood, and sometimes I wake up in a serious mood.

"With acting, you've got to be able to channel that for three months straight." (SS/ITC/ZJS)
