MTV reports that edgy pop-rocker Avril Lavigne has scored a role alongside Richard Gere in the crime thriller The Flock. No word yet on who she'll be playing, but the 21-year old is currently in New Mexico shooting a bunch of scenes. Can I get a "hell yeah!" to that? Okay, kidding. The Flock tells the story of a hyper-vigilant (don't you love them character descriptions?) federal agent who, while training his replacement, is forced to go track down a missing girl. Oohh, could that same missing girl also be gearing up to record her third album? Though this will mark her first time on screen, Avril will also be lending her voice to the upcoming animated feature Over the Hedge, in which she'll play a possum who's on-screen dad will be voiced by Bruce Willis.
