Kid Rock, who has bragged in song of how you’ve never met a motherf–er quite like him, has got something else to boast about.

The boisterous Detroit MC has signed on to play the leader of a bad-ass motorcycle gang in the upcoming film “Biker Boyz,” according to production company DreamWorks SKG. Directed by Reggie Rock Bythewood, who penned the upcoming DMX flick “Cradle 2 the Grave,” the movie stars Laurence Fishburne and Lisa Bonet.

The flick, which is being plugged as a western on motorcycles, tells the true story of motorcycle club president Manuel Galloway (Fishburne), who is known as the King of Cali. His unusual entourage includes lawyers and other white-collar professionals who moonlight as bikers and cruise the country with the King and his girlfriend, Queenie (Bonet).

The supporting cast includes Orlando Jones (“The Replacements”), Brendan Fehr (TV’s “Roswell”), Meagan Good (“3 Strikes”), Djimon Hounsou (“Gladiator”), Larenz Tate (“Dead Presidents”), Melissa De Sousa (“Miss Congeniality”), Salli Richardson, Terence Howard, Vanessa Bell Calloway, Rick Gonzalez, Derek Luke and Dante and Dion Basco.

The film marks Rock’s third acting venture. Last year, he read the voice of Kidney Rock in “Osmosis Jones” and played in Joe Dirt as Robby, a redneck bully who taunts David Spade’s lead character.

“Biker Boyz” was written by Craig Fernandez and based on a New Times L.A. article by Michael Gougis.
