This is the best summary I could come up with:

Coming off of Apple TV+’s Masters of the Air and a villainous role in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune: Part Two, Butler is now back on the big screen in Jeff Nichols’ long-awaited 1960s crime drama, The Bikeriders.

And while Butler led the star-studded ensemble alongside Jodie Comer, he plays a character named Benny who absolutely refuses to take the reins of his Chicago-area motorcycle club as it loses its way into organized crime.

Well, Nichols, who’d already faced countless obstacles in bringing his sixth film into fruition, asked his lead actor if he could instead go the way of the bald cap, something Butler and Dune: Part Two producers ultimately obliged.

From Tarantino and Elvis director Baz Luhrmann to Villeneuve and Nichols, Butler’s impressive résumé of auteur filmmakers continues to grow by the day, and the newest addition to his filmography is Ari Aster and his upcoming A24 film, Eddington, co-starring Joaquin Phoenix, Emily “Emma” Stone and Pedro Pascal.

Below, during a recent conversation with THR, Butler also explains how The Bikeriders implanted the motorcycle bug in him, before offering his thoughts on Benny’s brazen manner of wooing Comer’s character, Kathy.

That’s a good point that you made there, and as human beings, we definitely thrive when we find ways that we love to kill time with like-minded people who have similar passions.
