INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Actor Josh Duhamel has a new role for himself in May: pace car driver for the Indianapolis 500.

Duhamel stars in the upcoming action movie "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen." He also had roles in the soap opera "All My Children" and the primetime drama "Las Vegas." The 36-year-old North Dakota native is married to singer-songwriter and actress Fergie.

Duhamel will drive a 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, leading the field of 33 drivers to the green flag for the May 24 race. The car also appears in the new "Transformers" movie.

Last year, the pace car was driven by two-time Indy 500 winner Emerson Fittipaldi.
