Okay, bitches. Look at that dirty, roguish, naughty face and tell me you still wouldn’t let Gerard Butler do nasty, filthy, awesome things to you. Because praise Jesus, The Mullet detaches! Two days ago we saw photos of Gerard – in character – with a disgusting mullet, plus some added moobs and gut, probably from all of the buttery pastries he eats like it was your vagina. Tingles, right? That’s the power of The Butler. Anyway, Gerard looked totally disgusting, and so… Good Ol’ Boy, down-home, like one of those dudes who thinks a good time is racing around a residential neighborhood in his tricked-out Ford shootin’ mailboxes. But the mullet detaches and so everything is better, right? RIGHT?!?
Why is there so much evil in that slender, greasy piece of mullet-toupee? And why do I still want to rub that mullet-toupee all over my naked body? Because I really don’t care at the end of the day. Mullet or no mullet, this man makes me crazy. In a really awesome way.
As for the actual movie, I’ve been reading a bit more, and it turns out that Gerard’s character isn’t just some greasy biker dude. I’ll let Screen Rant summarize:
Last month, we learned that Lionsgate had acquired the distribution rights to Machine Gun Preacher, the story of ex-biker and reformed drug dealer, Sam Childers. The film, starring Gerard Butler and directed by Marc Forster (Quantum of Solace), revolves around Childers’ efforts to establish an orphanage in Sudan.
In real life, Reverend Childers is an incredible badass. Then again, you pretty much have to be if you’re job is to lead armed missions into Lord’s Resistance Army territory to rescue orphans.
The images first appeared… they certainly give us an idea of what Butler will look like in the role. I’m sure that Childers actually did wear leather vests (he was a biker after all) and he probably also rocked a pseudo-mullet. But, personally, seeing Gerard Butler in the same outfit doesn’t inspire much confidence. Maybe when they put a machine gun in his hand, he’ll look cooler.
Putting aside Gerard Butler’s hair in these pictures, the premise of Machine Gun Preacher actually sounds pretty interesting. The fact that it’s a true story, and that it co-stars the lovely and talented Michelle Monaghan, makes it even more appealing.
Despite his penchant for taking on ill-conceived romantic comedies, I think Gerard Butler is a pretty good actor. He does action well – though he’s not just an action star. He is well-suited to play Sam Childers, and despite my lukewarm response to the photos, I’m hopeful the movie is going to turn out well.
Machine Gun Preacher is currently filming in Detroit and will then head to South Africa. The movie’s anticipated release date is September 11th, 2011.

September 11th is my birthday. I’m just saying… all I want next year is a mullet on my doorstep. Seriously.
kaiser, honey, this item is dangerously close to you just putting your knickers on your head and frothing at the mouth.
so … well done, great start to the day.
@Kaiser- “… all I want next year is a mullet on my doorstep. Seriously.”
Honey, be careful for what you wish for– we don’t want ANY mullet showing up on our doorstep, we want THE Mullet!
“buttery pastries he eats like it was your vagina. Tingles, right?”
Oh dear god, Kaiser. Not in the morning, not even for Gerard. Remember, he’s still got the moobs, flaccid arms and saggy, pale stomach with a smelly belly button.
I totally still would, with a vengeance! I just find him soooooooooooo sexy. He looks like he’d be an awesome ride! Giddy-up, Gerard!
Hahahaha!! Thanks for making my morning Kaiser.
You’re words are like sweet disgusting very true music to my eyes…. That man is sex on a sex and you know it’s probably his life long mission to have sex with every female on the planet…
If he came up to me looking like a biker badass and asked me if I wanted to take a “ride on his motorcycle” I’d jump him err… on so fast, he wouldn’t have time to blink. Unless he packed on 300 lbs, grew a beard to his knees and heavily invested in mu mu’s and Birkenstocks, I’d still lick him like candy. Gerard in whipped cream, drizzled with chocolate…yum.
If only the moobs were detachable as well.
Oh Kaiser, I hate you for making me want this man! It’s not something I ever wanted to admit. Every time you write about him I want him even more. Damn you!
If there’s not already a Patron Saint for patience I’d like to fill out an application.
I think I’ll turn on some Marley…maybe “Waiting in Vain”…yea, sounds about right.
i think i just wet my panties…
i would hit that and come back for seconds…*swoons*
Mullet or not, he is still a terrible actor and hideously ugly.
Karen!!!He is not. Is not is not. So there. We like him,mullet or not and his acting. you just go comment somewhere else.
I absolutely would,could, on a train on a bus under a car in a truck,anywhere anytime I would eat GB and ham,… or without.
He was super hot as Leonidas 300 movie but after that he’s gross to me.He always looks like he needs a shower.I like clean cut guys..
“I absolutely would,could, on a train on a bus under a car in a truck,anywhere anytime I would eat GB and ham,…”
@rav53 & Kaiser too. You just made my afternoon. Good thing I’m alone in the office. I’m laughing so hard I think I broke something.
I totally understand your love for GB, Kaiser. I love reading your articles on him because you sum up how I feel about him so well LOL I’ve got it so bad that my family teases me mercilessly!
LOVED the whole “eating pastries like it’s your vagina” line! Pure poetry;)
Ladie ladies self-control is a virtue which is lacking here… on the other hand it’s Butler we are talking about. Carry on. Thanks for the belly laughs.
He’s still fug, but the comments made me LOL.
Thanks for making my afternoon. I laughed so hard, I cried. Indeed, The Butler brings out something (basic instinct) in many of us.
He has very little chin. Yuck.
