ASP.Net MVC 4 C# -- User.IsInRole ?

Only "BUICK_LeadMan" or "BUICK_Supervisor"
can view the "About" link.

How can I add something to the below code like
|| (User.IsInRole("BUICK_Supervisor") ?

------------------------------------------------
    if (User.IsInRole("BUICK_LeadMan"))
    {
       <li>@Html.ActionLink("About", "About", "Home")</li>
    }

Are these roles or usernames?  If they are roles you will need to implement a custom RoleProvider class that inherits from RoleProvider.  You can then override the IsInRole method (as well as others) and verify if the user is in the roles.

Here is a decent walk through about it

I am using MVC4 simpleMembership with the below SYSTEM generated database tables.

Can I use http://kitsula.com/Article/Custom-Role-Provider-for-MVC without having to change my tables and existing AccountController.cs logic ?

If not, what could be used so I don't have to change alot ?

Do you have an easier way ?
-----------------------------------------------------
@if (Request.IsAuthenticated)
{
    var userRoles = Roles.GetRolesForUser(User.Identity.Name);
   
    <li>@Html.ActionLink("HomePage", "Index", "Home")</li>
   
    var roles = new List<string> { "BUICK_Insepctor", "BUICK_LeadMan" };
    if (userRoles.Any(u => roles.Contains(u)))
    { <li>@Html.ActionLink("viewable_by_BUICK", "Index", "MAINT_WORK_REQ", new { area = "BUICK" }, null)</li> }
                                                                                                             
    var roles2 = new List<string> { "FORD_Insepctor", "FORD_LeadMan" };
    if (userRoles.Any(u => roles2.Contains(u)))
    { <li>@Html.ActionLink("viewable_by_FORD", "Index", "MAINT_WORK_REQ", new { area = " FORD" }, null)</li> }
                                                                                                                                                             
    <li>@Html.ActionLink("Test Link", "Index", "MAINT_WORK_REQ", new { area = "__Testing" }, null)</li>
}
