Gerard Butler to Take on a New Role in Shakespeare's Coriolanus With Ralph Fiennes

Gerard Butler — Love Him or Leave Him?

Gerard Butler has had a rough couple of weeks — critics panned his film Law Abiding Citizen and his appearance on Saturday Night Live didn't win rave reviews either. On top of everything else, there are rumors about him and Jessica Simpson getting cozy floating around. There is some light at the end of the tunnel though: he just announced in an interview that he'd be joining Shakespeare's Coriolanus with Ralph Fiennes for his next film.

It's nice to see Butler take on a project with some serious acting teeth. While he's always easy on the eyes in romantic comedies like P.S. I Love You or The Ugly Truth, I've never really liked the films themselves. (The possible exception being The Phantom of the Opera, since you know I love movie musicals!)

Maybe you disagree with me though? Law Abiding Citizen did take No. 2 at the box office, and I know that several of you liked the movie despite my review. So what do you think of Gerard Butler — love him or leave him?

I was a huge fan of his after I saw Phantom of the Opera, and he was great in Timeline, Lara Croft 2, Dear Frankie, P.S. I Love You, and 300. Unfortunately, his movies have sucked in the past few years and he has become such a ladies' man that I don't like that much anymore.

I voted to leave him, but it's not that I'm over him, it's that I've never been into him. He's a horrible actor and I'm tired of people being surprised at why he turns up in such bad movies. Stop acting Gerard and find another day job.

I'm actually surprised people love him. Awful Truth was just painful to watch.

Leave him - and no he wasn't a big deal in 300.

I used to find him attractive, and loved him in some of his older movies especially Dear Frankie, but recently he seems to be doing more and more crap that pays big. I can't blame him I guess you make the money while you're hot and in demand and have a good asking price, and later you can do whatever you want to.
