GIRL, INTERRUPTED (1999)
Columbia Pictures -- Director: James Mangold
This is what Travis himself told me about the movie in April, 1999: "I just wrapped "Girl, Interrupted" in Pennsylvania. I play Winona Ryder's love interest in the drama which is set in a psychiatric ward...I finally get the girl in the end without getting shot for it. The film also stars Whoopi Goldberg and Angelina Jolie." According to the IMDb, the movie is based on writer Susanna Kaysen's (Winona Ryder) account of her 18-month stay in a mental hospital, and they list Travis' character as John. Angelina Jolie won both a Golden Globe® and an Academy Award® in the category Actress in a Supporting Role for her interpretation of Lisa in this movie.

THE RIDE (2000)
According to Travis, it's a cross country motorcycle adventure. The movie was supposed to be filmed in August of 1999, but due to his working on another project at that time, he had to delay this one until the summer of 2000. However, I'm not entirely sure if this movie was ever completed.
