Levi Johnston to star in music video

Levi Johnston is set to star in a new music video.

Levi Johnston is set to star in a new music video.

(CNN) – Fresh off his re-engagement to Bristol Palin, the Associated Press reports that Levi Johnston is set to appear in an R&B music video in which he will play a young man driven away from his love interest by the young woman's mother.

Johnston, the fiancé of Bristol Palin, has agreed to appear in the video with Brittani Senser, an R&B artist.

"He's looking forward to doing it," Johnston's attorney told the Associated Press on Friday. "It will give him an opportunity to act a little bit in front of a camera. He's done a commercial before, but something like this is a little more involved."

Johnston and Bristol Palin announced their plans to become re-engaged earlier this month, shortly after Johnston issued a public apology to the Palin family, saying that some of his comments about the Palins in the wake of the 2008 presidential campaign are not totally true.

Bristol Palin is the daughter of former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. Johnston is the father of Britol's son Tripp, born in the months after the 2008 presidential campaign.

The couple told Us Weekly that Sarah Palin did not know about their plans until after their engagement.

The Palin family issued this statement after learning of the engagement:

"Bristol, at 19, is now a young adult. As parents we obviously want what is best for our children, but Bristol is ultimately in charge of determining what is best for her and her beautiful son."

    Will it be called "White Trash on Parade?"
    Maybe they could get Sarah in it and make it complete.

    Bristol is in for a rough ride....

    This guy will drop her when a better gig comes along. Sometimes we just have to learn the hard way.

    And we wonder why these people and their family are not taken serious? If you act like clowns, is one supposed to think you're not from the circus?

    He would be wise (while he and Bristol are friends) to get joint custody of his son and walk away from Mommy Dearest as a mother-in-law.

    Can you imagine how Sara totally emasculates every male within three thousand miles of her? Especially those closer.

    Enjoy your 15 minutes of "fame" ... when its over, you'll have to get a real job! But for now, you and Bristol are holding hands all the way to the bank!

    So burying the hatchet just isn't good enough for this loser, huh? Family relations in the Palin household should be stellar from now on. He'll be the guy you don't want to invite over for Christmas, but you know you have to, and then you have to deal with the awkward tension that comes with that.

    Todd should have taken him into the wild, where he would have had an "accident" about a year ago.

    The corrollary to "Life imitates art" = Art imitates life. This ought not to require any acting on his part, at any rate.

    Everyone in and around that Palin family seems to be a typical white trash "I wanna be on TV even if it's Jerry Springer" moron.

    And Republicans think these morons (that end up being on the Jerry Springer type shows) are fir to run for President of the US...

    ...and then complain about Democrats choosing a former Harvard Law Review President to be our candidate for President of the US, see the difference here???

    ...of course not Republicans, you have moonshine for brains...

    Money-grabbers. It pays to be undereducated and then be rewarded with lucrative contracts. Sarah Palin and her husband should be especially proud of this form of Capitalism. The apple didn't fall far from the tree.

    It's apparent the American people will tolerate anything, as long as they are entertained.

    And is Mama Grizzly playing the mother that is not happy with him? Sounds like the true tale of "The Story of Levi, Bristol and The Mama Grizzly".

    Really? Acting? WHO cares? Let that family and their "friends" just disappear please.

    Appearing in an R&B video hardly qualifies as an "acting gig". I'm just sayin'
