Can a Plugin Override New User Default Role Type

I'm making a plugin that creates user accounts. Is there a way I can create new users that get the role that I (the plugin developer) tell them to, as opposed to making them all the default new user role. I want to make new users a role type that is defined by my plugins parent plugin.

You can use the user_registration action to set a custom role directly after wp_insert_user() has been called.
add_action('user_register', 'foo_set_new_user_role', 9999, 1);
function foo_set_new_user_role($user_id){$user = new WP_User( $user_id );$user->set_role('your_new_role');

You can also use the action profile_update for just that, profile updates. It takes two parameters $user_id and $old_user_data.
