Travis Tritt’s New Movie Role

Tritt, Travis

If you’ve been wondering what ’90s country artist Travis Tritt is up to these days, it seems like he’s adding another acting role to his resume.

The singer behind the hits “Anymore” and “Here’s a Quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)” just scored a role as the character Eddie Waters in the upcoming movie Fishers of Men. The film is a Christian-based tale of twin brothers who go on to lead very different lives, according to television station WALB in Albany, Ga.

“Travis is obviously very excited to play the role. We’ve been talking to him off and on over the past few days about it,” says the director of the film, Joshua Mills. “And it’s definitely created a buzz around here. He’s got a huge fan base in country music as well as the south.”

The film is being shot in Georgia and is set in the 1950s. Travis Tritt’s first movie role was the 1993 television movie Rio Diablo. Travis has since portrayed himself in the 1996 movie Sgt. Bilko, which starred Dan Aykroyd and Steve Martin, and starred in Fire Down Below in 1997.
