The Hollywood Read ep. 8

THR LogoGerard Butler is a fascinating actor. He’s made a career mostly out of B-movie schlock, has garnered a large and loyal following, has jump-started at least one, maybe two, original-idea franchises, and he does it all for less than half what a superhero movie costs. He doesn’t seem overly concerned with his reputation as an actor, yet every character he plays has to be the Absolute! Best! At! Their! Job! This week, we dive into our odd fascination with Gerry B, his terrible movies, and pitch our own idea for a Gerard Butler action thriller. Join us as we laugh our way through Geostorm, Scottish stereotypes, and how this law-school drop out carved his way through post-millennial Hollywood.
