Fun Lovin' Criminals frontman Huey Morgan is to make his movie debut as a drug dealing transvestite.

The SCOOBY SNACKS star is to play a gay gang boss who leads a homosexual crew in upcoming crime caper HEADRUSH.

And Morgan has been preparing for the role by running in high heels with a drag queen friend through New York's Chelsea district at 2am.

Morgan says, "I got to see some really strange people. So when I came to play this part I based him on all these gay dudes I met.

"Think about it. If you're going to be a tough guy in a movie, it's already been done. You can't be a super hard guy, twitching and acting crazy, because everyone does that."
