Thornton Stars in New Tritt Video

Actor Billy Bob Thornton will star in Travis Tritt’s next video, “Modern Day Bonnie & Clyde,” filming Tuesday and Thursday (Dec. 11 and 13) on the edge of the Mojave Desert in California. This is the first time Thornton has starred in another artist’s video, according to a release from Tritt’s publicist. Thornton will play “an outlaw on the lam after holding up a convenience store with his girlfriend.” Tritt and Thornton met through Marty Stuart, who produced Thornton’s recent CD, Private Radio. Tritt contributed “Anymore,” his 1991 country hit, to the soundtrack for Daddy and Them, written and directed by Thornton. The “Modern Day Bonnie & Clyde” video is expected to begin airing at the end of December. 12/11/01
