|Welcome to "Gerard Butler Week"!

Actually, he - or, rather, the trailer for an upcoming movie that he stars in - is pretty hot these days. Gerard Butler is starring as King Leonidas of Sparta in the movie "300" being made by Frank Miller, the story of the 300 Spartans who fought against an overwhelming force of Persians under King Xerxes, and who have become synonymous with courage. Judging from the pictures below, the King could have fought them off with his rockhard abs alone (!), so this makes this a worthy entry in the (almost) naked Scotsman category. First, a few stills; then, two versions of the YouTube trailer - a short one (1.5 minutes) and a long one (3 minutes). I recommend the short one, but the long one does a better job of telling the "story". I'm just amazed at how they made Gerard Butler look like the personification of the image of a Greek warrior straight from an ancient piece of pottery.|
