Colin Farrell Movie Has Country Connections
Toby Keith fans from the Albuquerque, N.M., area could get some brief screen time in the new Colin Farrell flick, 'Crazy Heart,' which also stars Jeff Bridges, Robert Duvall and Maggie Gyllenhaal. Toby lent the actors his stage and audience during an Albuquerque show last year to film a performance scene for the movie, which is about an aging, alcoholic country singer (Bridges) who deals with the rise of his younger protege (Farrell).
Both Bridges and Farrell sing in the film, which will feature original music and a soundtrack produced by Grammy award-winning producer T-Bone Burnett. The indie drama is due in theaters next spring.
