It's always good to see an actor who's been coasting along decide they want to get stuck in and actually act again: witness Matthew McConaughey's recent choice of roles, picking up gigs with people like William Friedkin and Richard Linklater. We hope that Gerald Butler is heading along a similar career path, after a few years alternating between shouty thrillers and tone-deaf comedies: he picked up good notices for a Shakespearean turn in Ralph Fiennes' "Coriolanus," and is being positioned as a potential Best Actor candidate for his performance in Marc Forster's "Machine Gun Preacher," which opens next month.
