01-23-09: Law Abiding Citizen Cast Brings the Funny to Philly City Hall

Gerard, Jamie Foxx and F. Gary Gray had some fun at Philadelphia City Hall today as Mayor Michael Nutter presented the cast and crew of Law Abiding Citizen with a Liberty Bell.  Jamie did an impersonation of the Mayor to the delight of City workers, while Gerard complained about always being paired with Oscar winners…

Gerard Butler stepped to the mike and jokingly complained that he was tired of getting second billing in films starring Academy Award winners (like Foxx), and hoisted the bell, proclaiming: “this is my Oscar.”
