Birthday Boy: Ryan Gosling

Ryan Gosling turns 35 this year and I feel like it's been forever since I've seen him in a movie and in fact his last film I've seen was the critically-panned Only God Forgives two years ago and I didn't even see it in theaters! The last film of his I saw in theaters was The Place Beyond the Pines which was back in 2012! Let's all fondly remember The Year of Gosling (aka 2011) with the trio of Drive, Ides of March, and Crazy Stupid Love. Good times.

At least the Gosling Comeback is in full overdrive next year. The most exciting project of his for me is the musical he's doing with Emma Stone directed by Whiplash's Damien Chzelle, La La Land. He'll also appear in a Terence Malick film and another film where he'll star opposite Matt Bomer (and Russell Crowe, whatever). Plus he's apparently still working on that new Blade Runner film which... sure, okay. I don't care just give me films starring Ryan Gosling in my eyeballs now. Happy birthday!
