A Guy Who Does Tricks
2. To prepare for the role of European Football star George Dryer, Butler played a ton of soccer while training with professionals. Not that he was opposed to that prospect. Butler grew up with the game, and used to be quite a good youth player. "When I was younger, I was a great player, but I was never a skillful player in terms of the kind of guy who could do tricks and keep it up. Now I'm the kind of guy who can do tricks and keep it up." You can see Gerard's passion for the game in the featurette above.
