With Arnie busy in politics, and he and the rest of his action film contemporaries getting past their prime, Gerard Butler left Scotland for Hollywood, and filled the void. Butler's breakout role came in the blood-drenched, ab-tastic film 300. He has since made a drastic, perplexing turn, playing the loveable brute role in romantic comedies like The Ugly Truth and The Bounty Hunter.
