In 'Machine Gun Preacher,' Gerard Butler plays a former junkie biker who finds God, then becomes a savior to children in war-torn Sudan and Uganda. Sounds far-feteched, but it's all based on the true story of Sam Childers, a tough character who cleaned up, started his own church and then decided to go to the Sudan and save as many of its orphans as he could. The atrocities depicted in 'Machine Gun Preacher' make it a hard sell, but Butler's been crossing the country in support of the film, which he also co-produced. He talked to Moviefone about playing a gun-toting preacher with a messianic complex and how the movie changed his life.
