Playing For Keeps Trailer: Gerard Butler Is a Soccer Mom's Dream

Gerard Butler is quickly becoming the go-to sports guru of the movies. We recently saw him as a reluctant surf coach in the trailer for Chasing Mavericks, and now he's taking his skills to the soccer field — the peewee soccer field, that is. In Playing For Keeps, Butler is a retired soccer player sharing custody of his young son with his ex (Jessica Biel). Once legendary on the field, he's now reduced to shooting sports news auditions from his living room, in his underwear. He's taken up coaching his son's soccer team, and one of the soccer moms (Catherine Zeta-Jones) may have the hookup for a potential job at ESPN.

Full disclosure: I love hearing Butler speak with his native Scottish brogue. I haven't really been into him in romantic comedies, but this seems like it has a bit more heart to it than, say, The Bounty Hunter. The kid is also superadorable, and I'm curious about the romance story lines with Biel and Zeta-Jones. The movie doesn't open until Dec. 7, but you can check out the trailer when you read more.
