Billy Ray’s a Spy?

He can’t go on playing Miley Cyrus’ TV father forever, you know.

No, Billy Ray Cyrus wants something to call his own after riding the coattails of his ginormously popular daughter.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, he’ll be joining George Lopez and Amber Valletta have joined Jackie Chan‘s upcoming comedy The Spy Next Door. Chan plays a man who helps out his neighbors by babysitting their children. In a twist of bad luck for the guy, one accidentally downloads a code and he must protect the tykes from secret agents, i.e. Cyrus and Lopez. Wait, is Cyrus going to attempt some kung-fu moves?

It’s a stretch folks, I know, but you’ve got to give props for the guy trying to branch out.
