Eccentric actor and musician Billy Bob Thornton has personally requested to entertain the troops returning from Iraq in September (03).

The ex-husband of Angelina Jolie will join Leann Rimes at the event in CAMP LEJEUNE, North Carolina, on 4 September - where troops and their families will enjoy a day of music.

A representative at the camp says, "He came to us and asked if he could participate. He wanted to do something for the troops who've come back from Iraq."

THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE star and his band are currently on tour in the States, performing tracks from his debut album PRIVATE RADIO.
