PHOTO DOUBLE TAKE: Is Gerard Butler Channeling Billy Ray Cyrus?

Smith/Steinberg/Pacific Coast News; Fame

Talk about seeing double! Billy Ray Cyrus is no longer the only Hollywood hottie who’s keeping it business in the front, party in the back. Scottish hunk Gerard Butler made us look twice when we spotted him rocking a Cyrus-worthy mullet of his own while filming his new thriller Machine Gun Preacher in Michigan. Snapped on Monday sporting the new do, the actor completed the biker-appropriate look with a vest and Harley-Davidson T-shirt, while Billy Ray accessorized his current back-swept coif with a sleeveless T-shirt, shades and a long necklace. Though we’re used to the look on Miley‘s dad — who can forget his mega-mullet in the “Achy Breaky Heart” era? — we have to admit we’re a little startled seeing ladies-man Gerard’s signature cropped hair and touch of scruff replaced by this new look. Tell us: Who rocks his mullet better: Billy Ray or Gerard?

I used to thing Gerry was hot. He’s really been losing my attention.

Holli on

My thoughts EXACTLY, BFD. He seems not to care much about his appearance lately, even not counting this film role. He could have rocked the biker look without the mullet. Yuk.

Emmy on

It’s probably a wig on Gerard. Who cares

Jon on

Gerard definitely rocks the mullet better than Billy Ray Cyrus!

Nance on

This is the appearance that the character he is playing calls for. It has nothing to do with his personal choice of looks. Get a grip.

Thaikreatcha on

Ceptin that Billy aint notin and Gerard is FINE!!!!!!!!

Rhonda on

If it’s for a film role who cares that’s his job to look like that. I’m a fan of BOTH still like both.

Margaret on

Oh Gerard, my darling… what are you doing? No mullet!!! Please!!! That’s just about as bad as Brad’s goatee!! Get back to SHORT hair…

Jessica on

Denise on
