Gerard Butler, the actor that will play Jay Moriarty in the upcoming surf movie "Of Men and Mavericks", has survived a huge wave while filming at Mavericks.
Butler was rescued from the big surf, after being hit and taken down by a 15-foot wave. The Hollywood star was underwater for several minutes until a jet ski pulled him off the wave breaking zone.
Gerard Butler was taken to the Stanford Medical Center and, fortunately, he was not injured, just a little bit psychologically shocked. The man who is playing the life of Jay Moriarty had started a surf lessons in August and was taken to Mavericks to shoot parts of the surf movie.
