RISING Scottish actor Gerry Butler looks like a young moody Robert De Niro as a model for clothes chain Gap.

The Tomb Raider star - who plays Lara Croft's ex-boyfriend in the new film The Cradle of Life - appears in the latest series of Gap ads, also featuring music divas Madonna and Missy Elliott.

The modelling assignment is a sure sign that the Glasgow-born 33-year- old is fast becoming big news in Tinseltown.

Gap have already enlisted a diverse group of celebrities to promote their brand, including Lisa Marie Presley and Dennis Hopper.

The hunky 6ft 3in actor - who studied to be a lawyer - has already beaten Hollywood A- lister Antonio Banderas for the lead in the film adaptation of Phantom of the Opera.

Watch out Gerry, your career is about to head into the fast lane.
