A gifted actor with striking charm and humor, GERARD BUTLER has impressed audiences in roles that cover all ends of the spectrum.

The film also stars 50 Cent, Pablo Schreiber and O'Shea Jackson Jr.  

Butler recently wrapped production on Keepers, a psychological thriller based on a real-life unsolved mystery about a trio of lighthouse keepers pitted against each other on a remote Scottish island. Additionally, he recently wrapped production on Angel Has Fallen, the third installment in the highly successful Has Fallen film series.

He will also reprise his role voicing the character ‘Stoick' in the third installment of DreamWorks Animation's Academy Award nominated film, How to Train Your Dragon with Cate Blanchett, Jonah Hill, Craig Ferguson, and Kristen Wiig.

Butler solidified himself as a leading man when he starred as the bold and heroic King Leonidas in Zack Snyder's blockbuster film, 300.

In 2008, Butler and his manager Alan Siegel formed their production company, G-BASE, which has produced nine feature films including Them That Follow, Law Abiding Citizen, Olympus Has Fallen, the sequel London Has Fallen, Septembers Of Shiraz, which was selected into the 2015 Toronto Film Festival and The Headhunter's Calling, which premiered at the 2016 Toronto Film Festival. In addition to film, the company continues to produce and develop a diverse slate of projects including television series, documentaries, and interactive media projects.

Butler is dedicated to charitable efforts around the world including Mary's Meals, an organization founded with the simple mission to serve one meal a day to a child in school, as well as Artists for Peace and Justice, where he is a board member. APJ was established in 2009 and is a fundraising mission founded by Paul Haggis that encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty and enfranchisement in communities around the world.

Born in Scotland, Butler made his stage debut at the age of twelve in the musical, Oliver, at Glasgow's famous Kings Theatre. As a young man, his dreams of acting were temporarily deterred and he went on to study law for seven years before returning to the London stage in the acclaimed production of Trainspotting, and later in Snatch and the Donmar Warehouse production of Tennessee Williams' Suddenly Last Summer opposite Rachel Weisz.
