BUTLER LIKENS CHARACTER TO HANS SOLO

[ April 23rd 2003 ]

Gerard Butler, supporting Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie in Par's Tomb Raider sequel The Cradle Of Life, has likened his character to that of Han Solo from George Lucas' Star Wars movies, SciFi.com reports today. "I think the best way to describe him would be as kind of like a Han Solo from Star Wars. He's this kind of roguish bad boy with a cheeky smile who you don't want to mess with."

Speaking from London on the physical demands on performing his role, Butler said: "I was jumping out helicopters from 60 feet and dangling off and coming down from the top of the 007 stage, loads of scary machine-gun fire with glass smashing all around me. I particularly loved the fight sequences that they gave me, because they just make me out to be very, very tough and very, very callous at those moments."

Facing her greatest challenges and dangers yet, Lara Croft aka Hollywood superstar Angelina Jolie shows off her physical prowess like never before in the second of three movies based on the videogame of the same name. During this latest installment of her adventures, the intrepid tomb raider embarks on a perilous mission to rescue the world from the exploits of an evil Chinese crime syndicate led by oriental crime lord Chen Lo and overthrow new villain Reiss from deploying an army of biological drones to wreak havoc on the world.
