Country star Toby Keith gave US troops serving in the Middle East a sneak preview of his movie acting debut after airing BROKEN BRIDGES in Kuwait, Afghanistan and Qatar last weekend (11-13AUG06). The film, in which Keith plays a forgotten singer/songwriter, hit makeshift desert cinemas a month before the film premieres in the US. The movie also features John Travolta's actress wife Kelly Preston as Keith's love interest. Keith has been a regular visitor to troops overseas - he spent the Memorial Day weekend (27-29MAY06) in Germany and the Persian Gulf on his fourth United Services Organisation (USO) tour.
