In addition to acting, Butler launched a production shingle with his longtime manager Alan Siegel in March 2008. Their debut project starring Butler, "Law Abiding Citizen," grossed more than $100 million worldwide and became Overture Films' most lucrative opening to date. Most recently, the duo produced "Olympus Has Fallen," which went on to gross more than $161 million worldwide at the box office.

Butler solidified himself as a leading man when he starred as the bold and heroic King Leonidas in Zack Snyder's blockbuster film "300." The film broke box office records in its opening weekend and went on to earn more than $450 million worldwide.

Butler's other $100 million plus films include "The Bounty Hunter" opposite Jennifer Aniston; Robert Luketic's "The Ugly Truth," opposite Katherine Heigl; "Nim's Island" with Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin; "P.S. I Love You" opposite Hilary Swank; Andrew Lloyd Webber's "The Phantom of the Opera" opposite Emmy Rossum; and "Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life" opposite Angelina Jolie.

Butler has appeared in a wide variety of films spanning across all genres including: "Playing for Keeps," "Chasing Mavericks," Marc Forster's "Machine Gun Preacher"; "Coriolanus"; Lionsgate's "Gamer"; Guy Ritchie's "RocknRolla"; "Beowulf & Grendel"; "The Game of Their Lives"; the independent feature "Dear Frankie" opposite Emily Mortimer; "Timeline"; "Reign of Fire"; and John Madden's award-winning drama "Her Majesty, Mrs. Brown," starring Judi Dench. His early film work includes roles in "Harrison's Flowers," "One More Kiss," "Fast Food" and the screen adaptation of Chekhov's "The Cherry Orchard."

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 such plays as Snatch and the Donmar Warehouse production of Tennessee Williams, Suddenly Last Summer opposite Rachel Weisz.
