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!
