Gerard Butler Is the Ultimate 'Family Man' in Exclusive Movie Clip!

Gerard Butler is playing a dad in the upcoming movie A Family Man and he shows off his fatherly instincts in this new clip from the film, provided exclusively to JustJared.com.

In the scene, the 47-year-old actor wakes up his on-screen son and then goes for a jog with him.

Here’s the movie’s synopsis: Dane Jensen (Butler) is a hard-driven Chicago-based headhunter, working at a cut-throat job placement firm. When Dane’s boss (Willem Dafoe) announces his retirement, he pits Dane against Lynn Vogel (Alison Brie), Dane’s equally driven, but polar opposite rival at the firm, in a battle for control of the company. As Dane gears up for the professional battle of his life, he learns his 10-year-old son, Ryan (Max Jenkins), is diagnosed with cancer. Suddenly, Dane is pulled between achieving his professional dream and spending time with his wife (Gretchen Mol) and Ryan, who need him now more than ever.

A Family Man will hit theaters on July 28!

    Gerry’s father set the precedent on how to treat women and deal with pressures of any and all kind. Like it or not, it’s the truth.

    Link?

  • Time to ask…

    Perhaps he hasn’t figured himself out yet, so cannot and chooses not to commit that way. Or he has, and this is how he prefers to live his life?

    IMO, Hollywood is the closest example we might have of a licentious community. Yet, to be included in such a tight circle, it might have a tacit, or even a legal agreement to feign happiness, stability, and the principles of social morals.
    This might be the case.

  • Time to ask…

    No, the question is why “they” accept it.

    …..because it’s beneficial for both.

    ….finally some tan > and therefore the proof of his holidays….:)

  • Yeah Right

    I have heard Jay Leno say that he and his wife decided not to have children because of his career. They thought it would not be fair to a child with him on the road, away all the time. This was their mutual decision which you have to respect. Maybe Gerry feels the same way. We all know Jay Leno adores children same as Gerry.

    Thank you Brad, I appreciate that, she needs all the prayers she can get. Take care.

  • AJ

    Very well said. :)

  • AJ

    I sometimes can’t help wondering if part of the reason GB is so careful when it comes to having children or getting someone PG is because of his own experience with his father. I think if he really wants to have kids and he’s ever going to actually do it, I think he wants to make sure it’s the right time and done right. He doesn’t want his kid to go through what he went through.

  • AJ

    I cant’ speak for others but for me, it’s just uncanny how similar their dispositions towards me and opinions/comments are to the way you have expressed things to me in the past.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    But what if, and this will take some effort on your part and I can’t convince you, but what if there were silent readers who simply agreed with me (then) who’ve created accounts and are now voicing similar opinions? As you see I’m not as harsh, terse, curt, rude, you name it as before*. And more often than not, I do have something (with some intellect) to say mostly about Butler. Just let me tell you this truthfully, and again I can’t convince you, that “anon” poster is not me.
    *Yesterday was payback for HH for telling me to stop using a word.

  • AJ

    You are right, that is possible. It could even be someone who talks to me on a regular basis but feels bad to tell me how they really feel sometimes. lol. Yes, I have noticed and I appreciate that. Thanks.

    Eta A healthy gossip site is one where there is provoking conversations and lively debate of all kinds, which includes spats.

    I am of the personal opinion unethical self-indulgence has cost Butler friends, time, money, and his career’s upward mobility.

    If I took a stab I’d say it is no one new and possibly Yeah Right. But it is someone you chat with regularly who wants to express that side of her about you and save the other moniker for other chats. Who isn’t talking to you today? Who is less vocal. There aren’t that many people here.

    Nice name they gave her.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    That was fast.
    So is he using the internet as a weapon for torture or are the off again?

  • anon

    If anyone lacks comprehension skills, that would definitely be you.

    Snickers.

  • anon

    I’m sure you’ve blocked me by now, but I agree with your first paragraph.

  • AJ

    I don’t think so and it doesn’t really matter. No one is perfect, myself included. That’s not the point. The point for me is, if you are not being attacked why berate or attempt to shame somebody? To me that says more about the person who’s initiating the verbal attack than the person who is reacting or defending themselves. Agree to disagree or ignore the person. But you know what, to each his/her own, it’s their right. As it is my right to respond in kind and /or avoid those types of posters. I’m here because I enjoy sharing opinions and debating things about GB and his life even with those who have different points of views or opinions than me.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    I am of the personal opinion unethical self-indulgence has cost Butler friends, time, money, and his career’s upward mobility. I’m also of the opinion he values the Golden Rule and knows right from wrong. And that he has things he needs to put right, but would prefer to feel nothing so parties and creates drama for distraction.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    IMO the fun stopped in 2015.

  • 🌻JustJenny🌻

    Nothing like them adding insult to injury. Ouch

  • AJ

    Thank you Lace for all these amazing photos! :):)

  • 🌻JustJenny🌻

    I’m just relieved his friend isn’t carrying around his little baby again with no clothes or hat. As much as I love to view GB…was more worried that baby was getting sunburned. haha

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    When I see someone making them self ill in the process from a compulsive infatuation I feel it a humane duty to give that person a reality check. No one should get hysterical over matters beyond their control.

  • AJ

    And that’s your right as it is the right of the person to respond/react as it suits them.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Why not? You think he’s animalistic?
    He’s no self-control? No will-power?
    Or do you prefer to talk about his sex life? ;) That in talking about his sex life its a substitute for having one with him?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    Exactly.

  • 😼HH😼

    And you have proof of money and gift exchange……HOW? If not proof, you are LYING!

  • 😼HH😼

    Nice to see your new sock GFW!

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    IMO Brandy was/is sterile due to her, er, problems compounded by being a HW slut.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    IMO MB appears mentally and physically malnourished.

  • 😼HH😼

    Well, you wish to know, here is a tidbit to chew on and you can soon find out about her finances….if she has money or not. Enjoy this for a bit of chatter.

  • 😼HH😼

    And i just DID throw up in my mouth…do NOT ever compare me to that……EWWWWW! I live on west coast to begin with.

  • 😼HH😼

    ROFL…you are such a complete fraud and a hypocrite GFW.

  • 😼HH😼

    ATTENTION: Other people’s lives are NOT your responsibility. Get on with your own and move along. Pot, meet kettle

  • 😼HH😼

    no plans…this is in case you try and lie or not be completely honest. in other words everyone else here stands by what they write. You are a coward that erases your words so no one can remember and point out your lies, mistakes, flaws and bullshit. Trying to look like you’re the sweet loving supporter when you re as bad in your own way as say…LDB.

  • 😼HH😼

    Not sure if i should upvote you or not.

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    So so far away.

  • AJ

    Thank you for affirming my original instincts. LOL!
    Nope, I don’t think that at all. I’m sure that he is very capable of self-control when he chooses to. I also believe he is capable of being faithful when he wants to. But I’m talking about right now and right now I think, his relationship with MB is an open one and ETA: he’s on vacation without her. So no I don’t think he’s being a saint on this trip. That’s just what I think. Doesn’t mean it’s true.
    Do you have an issue with me talking about his sex life?

  • http://rememberingthedesireisprivate.blogspot.com/ GFW

    The only issues I have is with “open” relationships. Someone always wants to close it. Therefore someone always gets hurt.

  • 😼HH😼

    I don’t even think there is any relationship…open or otherwise.

  • 😼HH😼

    *sniff, sniff* I smell bullshit!

  • 😼HH😼

    well, that’s cuz it doesn’t!
