But in what you are about to read below, well, there is no "good."

Jessica Biel's breakout role was on the small screen as wholesome Mary Camden in the hit family drama "7th Heaven." She soon beefed up her career and her body with starring roles in action movies like "Blade: Trinity," "The A-Team" and the "Total Recall" remake.
Jessica isn't just good at beating up the bad guys. She's devoted equal parts of her career to pretty much every kind of movie genre imaginable from horror ("The Texas Chainsaw Massacre") to period dramas ("The Illusionist," "Hitchcock") to romantic comedies ("Playing For Keeps").
But no matter what role Jessica takes on, she always brings her signature girl next door charm and stunning good looks with her. Putting a Hot People Looking Hot gallery together for Mrs. Justin Timberlake is an honor and a privilege.
Jessica Biel is pure enigma, a riddle wrapped inside a Justin Timberlake dance move. Is she the sultry sex symbol who posed in Gear Magazine (R.I.P.), much to the annoyance of her "7th Heaven" producers? Is she the bright-eyed lass who stole Freddie Prinze Jr.'s heart in "Summer Catch" or the Cameron Crowe-approved actor whom he made one of the heavies in "Elizabethtown"? Or perhaps none of the above?

Gerard Butler — that Scottish hunk of man-thespian who's cornered the market on shirtless action movies and rom-coms about bounty hunters and/or Katherine Heigl — is back in theaters this weekend with "Playing For Keeps," the story of a morally tarnished athlete who finds his heart of gold in the midst of his son's soccer team and a bunch of MILFs.
Butler's been throwing his manliness across movie screens since his breakout role as Dracula in 2000's, er, "Dracula 2000," but his career began long before; the 43-year-actor has nearly 50 film credits to his name.
So, in honor of his long and testosterone-filled filmography, we bring you the TOP TWO GERARD BUTLER FILMS... OF ALL TIME! Get More »
We've given away some pretty amazing prizes in the past — shirts, signed posters, Blu-ray box sets, zip drives, key chains, body art, a llama (okay, not really) — but we rarely give away anything quite this awesome: Two tickets to see the New York City premiere of the upcoming Gerard Butler / Jessica Biel rom-com, "Playing for Keeps."

Oh, Gerald Butler ... what is Hollywood going to do with you?
Butler was poised for superstardom after his rousing turn in Zack Snyder's "300" as King Leonidas, the mighty warrior who made "THIS! IS! SPARTA!" one of the most oft-uttered pop culture quotes of 2007. Since then, he's been kind of floundering about, appearing in wretched Katherine Heigl comedies and giving decent performances in forgetful would-be "important" dramas like "Machine Gun Preacher."
