Playing For Keeps, the new romantic comedy from FilmDistrict and director Gabriele Muccino, hits theaters this Friday and stars Gerard Butler, Jessica Biel, Uma Thurman, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Judy Greer and Dennis Quaid.
Butler plays George, a former soccer star who, his fame rapidly fading, decides to try and get his life together by moving to a small suburban town to be near his ex-wife (Biel) and their son. Things get a bit complicated, however, when George winds up coaching a children’s soccer team and winds up with way more than he bargained for, becoming the object of affection for quite a few of the town’s most attractive ladies.
ComingSoon.net sat down to speak with Butler and Biel about the film, its balance between family drama and sex comedy and the importance of soccer to its Scottish lead. Check out the interviews in the player below and catch Playing for Keeps in theaters December 7.
