Brandon Flowers taps Oscar winner for video
'Crossfire' clip features Charlize Theron as heroineNEW YORK -- It's not clear what exactly Brandon Flowers did to face the wrath of a crew of assassins in the video for his new single, "Crossfire," but thankfully one beautiful actress by the name of Charlize Theron has his back.
The action-packed "Crossfire" clip could be mistaken for a preview of the next Scorcese movie, as Theron plays a badass heroine who rescues Flowers from torturous situations not once, not twice, but on three separate occasions. The usually somber-faced Killers frontman cracks a smile after each successful rescue mission (most notably at 3:49, while hanging upside down in a strait jacket).
In a typically Hollywood-style ending, Theron and Flowers drive off together in the sunset to safety, at least for now. But perhaps this is a story to be continued -- Flowers' solo album, "Flamingo" is due Sept. 14, giving him ample time to develop this epic saga.
