Cee Lo Green has landed a film role alongside his fellow The Voice judge Adam Levine in Keira Knightley's new movie musical Can A Song Save Your Life?.

Maroon 5 frontman Levine signed on for the project earlier this month (Jun12) and now the Crazy hitmaker is set to join him on the big screen in a cast that includes The Avengers star Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld and Catherine Keener.

Green will portray Troublegum, a successful hip-hop star, and Steinfeld can't wait to meet her new co-star when production begins in New York next week (begs02Jul12).

In a Twitter.com post on Thursday (28Jun12), she writes, "Very excited to be working with CeeLoGreen".

Green is building up his acting portfolio after scoring appearances in Whitney Houston's last movie, the upcoming Sparkle, and voicing a character in Adam Sandler's animated Hotel Transylvania.
