The name's Butler, Gerard Butler. The little-known Scottish actor best known for last year's Wes Craven Presents: Dracula 2000 is reportedly the frontrunner to succeed Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. According to the Daily Record, producer Barbara Broccoli has set up a meeting with Butler to discuss the role. Brosnan's contract, the newspaper reports, expires after his fourth Bond pic which goes into production in January.
