Toby Keith’s “Beer For My Horses” Movie Is Ready To Roll

Jun 25th, 2008 // 1 Comment

Yes, Beer For My Horses, the country caper based on Toby Keith’s legendary ode to lynching (starring Keith, Willie Nelson, Ted Nugent, and Claire Forlani), has a trailer out and will be hitting theaters this August. As shown above, Ted Nugent will be playing a crazed gun enthusiast named Skunk, and judging by Keith’s fond recollection of an on-set rabbit slaughter, it looks like the Nuge is a practitioner of the Method.

“Ted has just shot a guy with a bow and arrow,” explained Keith. “And he’s leaving the set to go back to his trailer, and all of Hollywood is standing around and a cotton tail jumps up–rabbit–and crosses the set. POW! And he guts him a rabbit right in front of everybody.”

For those not familiar with Ted’s thespian career, here’s a classic clip from the Miami Vice that launched it.

The Motor City Madman can also be seen playing a “Hot Seat Band Member” in Nightmare On Elm Street 5, a “Rock Star” in Tape Heads, and… well, that’s it so far, but I’m sure he’ll get plenty of work once Beer For My Horses is released.
