Gerard Butler: Michigan Midnight Madness!

Gerard Butler: Michigan Midnight Madness!

Michigan State University students and fans were in for a treat during the school’s Midnight Madness event on Friday (October 15) when Gerard Butler made a surprise appearance!

The 40-year-old Scottish stud helped kick off the Spartans’ basketball season and led the almost 15,000- strong crowd at Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan in a chant.

Gerard, who played a Spartan warrior king in 300, yelled out one of the film’s famous lines, “Spartans! What is your profession?’” to which the crowd responded, “Who, who, who!”

JustJared.com reader Mary, who was there, says everyone went crazy!

Pictured: Gerry also pumping up the university’s football team. The actor met with the players while they were watching 300 the night before their homecoming game.

    Looks like Gerard’s trolling for co-ed strange.
    Why is this news?

  • Red faced

    The stadium sounded embarrassingly quiet at the end when he tried to lead them in another chant. He seemed to know it too….
    Yikes.

    My god, his legs in the pic on the left! Why is he sooooooo thin?

  • she

    @sukar: he isn’t thin it’s a matter of relativity. they are big

  • Why Laurie?

    I don’t understand how Laurie could go out to a public event looking like this! Check out the horrible hair!

    http://movies.broadwayworld.com/article/Photo_Coverage_Premiere_of_The_Social_Network_Paris_20000101

    Oh and this is her polished off look. I wonder what she looks like at home, without the makeup!

  • stupidfans

    @Mr. Giggles: Giggles I couldn’t put my finger on it, but you nailed it. He’s like the dimestore Sean Penn.

    If Sean Penn is Coca Cola, then Gerard Butler is Shasta.

  • sukar

    @she:

    Come on She, look at the photo again. He’s almost anorexic looking!

  • she

    @sukar: no he is not. It’s his Pigeon Toes in action that you see

  • Lilly

    @Why Laurie?:
    Laurie is by far the ugliest woman Gerry has EVER been associated with or linked to. Jeez, I don’t even know where to begin…her horsey facial shape is absolutely horrible, her gum showing smile, the nose, the masculine looking body… *phew*
    And yeah, she’s dressed like s’hit in those pics!

  • sukar

    @Lilly:

    She does look horrible in these new photos. I can’t believe she went out with her hair looking like that.

  • powerpuffgirl

    aw he is still really hot but i wish he would cut his hair :( !

  • Mr. Giggles

    @stupidfans:

    …………….If Sean Penn is Coca Cola, then Gerard Butler is Shasta………

    @France…she is the one what?

  • kp hearts butler

    I wanna shoot the person who convinced Butler that his hair looks good like this……HELL NO….please cut it asap!!! Ugh, it sucks sooo bad!!

  • kp hearts butler

    And @France….if Laurie’s a “beauty” ummm…really? All I can do is quote Steven Tyler by saying….”dude looks like a lady”….nuff said.

  • kp hearts butler

    OMG and those pics that @Why Laurie posted…..c’mon….why the long face?

  • she
  • CJ

    @she…way better..♥

  • Dan

    How nice of him

  • Mellifera

    Another thread JJ?? Wowsy. I don’t know if I can handle it, I’m still weaning myself off the mega L’Oreal thread (I miss that thread!).

    I think some of you are being unnecessarily mean about Laurie’s appearance. She’s not as bad as all that – she’s not a rare beauty but she’s not ugly. Give her a break, she’s at a movie premiere in Paris, not at Gerry’s side just asking to be torn to shreds by Phannies.

    Sukar – I doubt anyone could ever call Gerry anorexic! lol

  • CJ

    Spanks…Pineapple Peeps love and miss you…♥♥♥♥♥♥..33333333

  • Mellifera

    @Red faced: Erm, you must be hearing something different to me, I heard the crowd chant it with him. He doesn’t look embarrassed in the slightest to me.

  • David

    She looks like she had just finished house keeping and was too late for having a shower and do a change in clothes

    Sorry, but true. I would be ashamed if my gf would turn up anywhere like this when she knows thatn there will be pics taken.

  • sukar

    @David:

    That’s the problem. She KNEW that it is a public event and there will be a lot of A Listers. What was she thinking?

  • she

    @CJ: good…now the only thing that is left to do is call the travel agency and order the tickets on the expense of our Ritalin boy.

  • angelsrock

    Spartans!!!! Hey, I think its nice of Gerry to fly out for Midnight Madness. It seems they’ve asked him to join them since “300″ and he finally could make it. The crowd seemed to enjoy it. He may be doing some work for KKC too since their headquarters are in Detroit.

  • *eyeroll*

    @angelsrock:

    exactly!

  • CJ

    @she….if only…lol..♥

  • redOctober

    Well done Spartan! ;D…awooo!

  • she

    @CJ: anyway… this week I start my studies. My professor is crazy but he doesn’t know that I have an exterior source…

  • http://www.justjared.com lolita

    Say what you want but it was really great of him to show up to spur on the college games. Even when he has good intentions some one is ready to pick him apart. He doesn’t have to travel to Detroit to get a booty call we all know all he has to do is step out of his house to run into a willing participant.

  • redOctober

    …more work on MGP, perhaps? …that’s why he’s keeping his hair long?

  • Vanessa

    Is he becoming a JJ fame wh..0re?

    :I

  • Kulu

    Laurie is not ugly ( well okay, she`s not beautiful but she is not THAT ugly ), she just has no taste … no style. That makes her to be the right one for Gerry, he has no taste too.

  • http://;;;; ;;;;

    Gerry has a sore leg, look when he goes out, right?

    @redOctober: Red, it’s a nice change to see him with his longer hair. I also think downtime is just that. Time to relax and wear what you want. I am lucky to work in a place that lets you wear casual clothes to work…so when I dress up it feels special. He may be checking on the progress of the film and maybe they will have to reshoot something…so that is why he has kept the long hair. Good to see him with a happy face with that great smile.

    @Mellifera: Melli, how you doing? How is the back coming along? Good to see all the new pics of Gerry. It seems like it is either feast or famine when it comes to news on Gerry. I prefer the feast. Have a good day! ♥♥

  • gotta be kidding

    God, she is FUG, if they are together, love is def blind

  • redOctober

    According to MSU athletic director Mark Hollis, Butler will also be at Spartan Stadium Saturday for the Illinois game.
