GERARD BUTLER (One Two) has distinguished himself as a leading man on the stage and screen.

Butler starred as the Spartan King Leonidas in Zack Snyder's blockbuster actioner "300,” which broke box office records in its opening weekend on its way to earning more than $450 million worldwide. He more recently starred in the romantic drama "P.S. I Love You,” opposite Hilary Swank, and in the fantasy adventure "Nim's Island,” with Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin.

Butler also stars in a wide range of upcoming projects, including the romantic comedy "The Ugly Truth,” in which he stars opposite Katherine Heigl under the direction of Robert Luketic, and the thriller "Game,” directed by Neveldine and Taylor. Born in Scotland, Butler made his stage debut at the age of 12 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 stage in London. In 1996, he landed the lead role in the acclaimed stage production of "Trainspotting.” He later starred on the London stage in the Donmar Warehouse production of Tennessee Williams' "Suddenly Last Summer,” opposite Rachel Weisz.

In 1997, Butler made his feature film debut in John Madden's award-winning drama "Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown,” starring Judi Dench. His early film work also includes "Fast Food,” "One More Kiss,” the 1999 screen adaptation of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard,” and "Harrison's Flowers.”

In 2004, Butler won the coveted title role in the film version of Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera.” He also earned critical acclaim for his work opposite Emily Mortimer in the independent feature "Dear Frankie,” which screened at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. Butler's other film credits include "Beowulf & Grendel,” "The Game of Their Lives,” "Timeline,” "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life” and "Reign of Fire.”
