Welcome to GERRYSTORM, the podcast dedicated to the filmography of our Greatest Living Scotsman, Gerard Butler.
Scroll down for more on all GERRYSTORM episodes, and how to listen, or check out the latest episode below. Warning: all GERRYSTORM podcast episodes are very spoilery (there’s also a synopsis at the start of each episode if you need to recap).
We’re in bloody, B-movie heaven in episode 8, watching Copshop — with Gerry playing a stinky hitman called Bob Viddick. Bob is after a small time crook with big crime aspirations called Teddy (Frank Grillo), as is crazed fellow killer Tony Lamb (Toby Huss) — they meet their match in rookie cop Valerie Young (Alexis Louder), over one night in the isolated Nevada desert police precinct.
Joining me to talk about the film is writer and critic Nicola Austin, EIC at wehaveahulk.co.uk, and we cover a lot in only 30 minutes: who is our favourite Copshop crim? Is Gerry turning into Bruce Willis? And most importantly, how far can the excellent Alexis Louder go?

Look out for a new GERRYSTORM episode every few weeks, covering a different Gerard Butler film each time. Who knows, we might even do a one-off special on his accent, which vanishes and reappears more times than Captain Kirk in a faulty teleporter, or indeed Big Ron from Eastenders.
