Actor Gerard Butler launched himself to stardom with his starring role in 2006's Spartan war epic 300, and judging by his recent appearances at a Michigan State football game and basketball preseason kickoff event (you know, because MSU are the Spartans), he's still enjoying the boost that movie provided his career.

Both crowds answered back with gusto, and Butler seemed to eat it up. (MSU basketball coach Tom Izzo certainly did.)

From the looks of it, he's just having fun.
