He hasn’t just blasted onto the planet this year in films like Crazy, Stupid, Love; Drive and The Ides of March.
I first came across him playing an introvert very well in Lars and the Real Girl, a warped version of Pygmalion which came out in 2007. And no, I haven’t seen The Notebook yet.
He has an embarrassing past and it involves Justin Timberlake, the Mickey Mouse club and some truly awful clothes. He is actually in a serious band with his friend Zach Shields, called Dead Man’s Bones. But this is funnier.
He’s quitting acting for good?? Rumours are circulating that Gosling might quit while he’s ahead and leave acting. We’re just crossing our fingers for an MMC reunion with Justin, JC Chasez and er, the fourth guy.
But he does have four films in the pipeline/ post production, according to IMDB: The Place beyond the Pines with Rose Byrne and Bradley Cooper, an LAPD drama set in the 40s and 50s called Gangster Squad with Emma Stone, the Thailand-set Only God Forgives and a Terrence Malick film due out in 2013.
OK fine here’s one of Dead Man’s Bones’ tracks.
