As if 2011 wasn't?
Three high-profile, well received movies in one year (four, if you remember that Blue Valentine was a limited release last Christmas) and another three on the way—
Can it by the year of the Gosling, two years in a row?
Of all the young turks in film today, Ryan Gosling has the depth and breadth and height (at 6'1") that merits a long-lived and celebrated career.
He is 3D cinematic star power, no CGI needed.
If you wanted to see a man who can lose a woman because he loves her too much, and for all the wrong reasons, as he did in Blue Valentine, go to Gosling.
If you want a tough guy with a soft center who can make a movie so much more than mayhem and violence like Drive might have been without him, go to Gosling.
If you want an actor who embodies a player like the one he played in Crazy, Stupid Love, but then can turn the role on its head by showing that he lost his soul when he broke his heart, go to Gosling.
If you want a guy who can play a cocky political operative yet be ethical and still be believable, as he was in Ides of March–AND hold his own against George Clooney–
You got it: go to Gosling.
Yup. Time to change the Chinese calendar.
I would so enjoy looking down onto a placemat with that face on it.
Yum yum yum,
