sometimes he’s kinda of adorable in a hopeless way….but he’s FAAAAR from hot…whatever floats your boat hahahahaha

You magical creature. Again you find what we can’t. *mwah*
BTW in that pic of him walking away… I notice his ass is missing again. hehe

@*eyeroll*: I didn’t say “different” was a bad thing….I agree with you 100%
*hoping GB will act the h*ll out of this role

I think this part of the movie is set in the 90s when their daughter was a little girl. Gerry looks just like bikers around some bars in my area. I don’t like the look personally, but he’s got it nailed for the movie.

@Gracey: I was just thinking about the same thing.

There are a variety of biker types in the world. Preppy bikers, weekend middle-aged bikers, rich bikers, poor bikers and the type of biker that Sam was at this time of his life. It’s a culture of it’s own, and of course the look isn’t what many people find attractive. But that was Sam’s culture and that’s what’s G is portraying. I think some people seem to think he should pretty up the role. This is about a real person. No need to whitewash it. I can’t wait to see what the look in Africa will be.

Evening JJers

Feels like I’ve been away for ages but it’s good to see a new thread. I’m looking forward to this movie and hoping G does a fantastic job

He looks like an older SHIA LABOUF…

Is Butler still with that French reporter?

Nice mulletude, Butler.

Is that Lynn Childers talking to him (the woman holding his face, and he has his hand on her waist? She looks like she’s giving him guidance or something.

And…I’m liking this look.

My, my, my.

I was never the one who liked the bad boys but since finally noticing Gerry I’m suprised how much I’m attracted to them. (With age comes wisdom?)

Anyhow, loving the biker look.

Nice pics, but they need to thin out his hair on top a little, so its not …so high. When I look at the pics my eyes to right to the hair.

…go right to his hair. Sorry. Need edit button.

@Nuts: I wondered who that is as well. The woman has the same kind of hair as Lynn. Could be.

I’m thinking that’s Kathy Baker who plays Sam’s mother. It’s def. not Michelle Monaghan.

He’s amazing. Even his body type changes with different rolls. His arms look like a real biker’s arms, not like King Leonidis or even Mike Chadway or Milo.

I have to agree. His arms have the biker flab going right now. I miss his beautiful defined guns. *sigh*

*eyeroll* @ 07/12/2010 at 1:37 pm


but I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before. lol

Damn! Really need an edit button!

But you can see Michelle Monahan in a few of those shots, she is wearing a short flowered skirt or shorts.

Our Gerry is even looking a little soft in the belly dammit.
What i want to know, is why does the stunt double have better hair than the star? hehe

@spanky: hey you!
you all know I love GB but today I’m really loving this (sorry for all uninterested but this made my day :)

your right manny….lol ……….

gerry went for the hair gel i guess, or last night’s KY

@Manny: Did you read the ‘article’ that goes with the dlisted pics? The Cyrus-ized part and the El Camino and … I laughed until a cried. Sorry, G. You know I love you, but that was some funny stuff.
