Using roles from an existing authentication provider

I am looking at ways to use our existing roles provider to get roles of users so that we don't have to duplicate the data. I have gone through this post where he used the login page to get the roles from AD. So one option is to use it this way to get the roles upon user login. Is there anyway to override any service to do this or is this the prefered way?

We will be having a wcf service which returns roles of the user.
