Kevin Federline has turned to his ex-lover Shar Jackson for acting advice.
The dancer/rapper, who ditched Jackson for Britney Spears, will make his movie debut in the thriller Night Watch, opposite Keanu Reeves and Oscar winner Forest Whitaker.
Former Moesha star Jackson - the mother of two of Federline's children - has offered to give her ex tips on performing for the silver screen.
She tells talk show host Larry King, "I will tell him, I can be his acting coach. That is what I do."
Federline recently appeared in an episode of TV drama CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.
