As a Trans-Am-driving, sleeveless-T-shirt-wearing American bad ass, Kid Rock won't be straying too far from character when his feature film debut in "The Adventures of Joe Dirt" hits theaters on March 9.
Kid plays rival to David Spade's Joe Dirt, a mulleted moron looking to find his parents (played by Gary Busey and Roseanne), who abandoned him as a child because he was too obnoxious. Rock's character and Dirt collide over the affections of Brandy, played by Brittany Daniel of "Dawson's Creek" and "Sweet Valley High" fame.
To witness evidence of Kid Rock's acting chops, two "Joe Dirt" clips featuring the performer can be found on his recently revamped Web site.
That's not all you can catch of the Early Mornin' Stoned Pimp on the silver screen. Later this year, the voices of Kid Rock and his late sidekick, Joe C., can be heard in "Osmosis Jones." The two play white blood cells that help rid a host body of a virus in the animated movie by the Farrelly Brothers ("There's Something About Mary," "Kingpin").
On the music front, Kid Rock will begin working on a new album once his tour with Buckcherry and Fuel wraps up on February 23 (see "Buckcherry Join Kid Rock, Fuel On Tour"), according to his publicist.
