I agree...those roles for them were good because it got both of them noticed.

They didn't mention a small movie Gerard Butler did called 'Dear Frankie'. That was one of the best movies I think he's ever done. The whole cast especially the little boy in it was great but I don't think it was widely released.....surely one of his best.
