For his latest action-comedy, Shane Black (Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Iron Man 3) assembled an unlikely comedy duo in Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, then encouraged them to play it in the style of classic pairings like Abbott and Costello or Hope and Crosby.
While Gosling has some comedy experience (Crazy Stupid Love, The Big Short), Crowe isn't known for his levity. But he saw more than humour in the project. "I just really liked the density of this script," Crowe says. "I wouldn't have described it necessarily as a comedy because it's full of social commentary and other things that you don't necessarily find in just a comedy."
He laughs when asked about beefing up for the role. "What I decided to do was just to live a completely sedentary life," he says. "What am I going to do, compete with Ryan? So I just decided to go the other way."

Ridley Scott has suggested Gosling could star in the new ‘Blade Runner’ film, opposite Harrison Ford.
Director Ridley Scott has said he thinks Ryan Gosling will take the lead role in the new Blade Runner film which will also star Harrison Ford. But the follow up to the 1982 sci-fi cult classic will not have Scott behind the camera, as he’s now handed the reigns over to Denis Villeneuve.
Ryan Gosling could take the lead in new Blade Runner movie.
Speaking to Den of Geek Scott said, “I think Ryan Gosling is probably going to do it, with Harrison.” When then asked if Gosling would play the central character Scott replied, “Yeah, yeah. I can’t really say more than that, because it’ll give away the story. But Harrison’s definitely in it. In an important way.”

When Dr. Michael Burry discovered that the housing market in the US relied upon a series of bad loans in 2005, he knew there was profit to be had. He even went as far as moving on from his multi-million dollar Scion Capital LLC hedge fund in a bid to short the market and take advantage of the vulnerable housing deals. But he wasn't the only one with plans to accrue wealth off the back of financial disaster; Steve Eisman was a hedge fund manager who had a lot to say against the greedy banks, as did Cornwall Capital partner Ben Hockett and Deutsche Bank trader Greg Lippmann. These are financial outsiders that are about to show the banks a serious lesson when they use their economic skills to bring them down with a brave move in the credit default swap market.

Ryan Gosling - American actor and now director Ryan Gosling was spotted out with actress Lily James and actor Matt Smith as they enjoyed the nightlife in Mayfair, London, United Kingdom - Friday 10th April 2015
Ryan Gosling's movie has flopped with the critics.
Ryan Gosling's latest directorial effort, Lost River, stars Christina Hendricks as a mother struggling to protect her children in a dreamlike city. Meanwhile, her eldest son gets into trouble with the town's feared bully, while trying to get some money to help his mother.
Ryan Gosling's Lost River hasn't gone down too well with critics
It's just not very good. Lost River pulled in mainly negative reviews following its premiere at Cannes in 2014, with the Guardian's Peter Bradshaw saying the film was "colossally indulgent, shapeless, often fantastically and unthinkingly offensive and at all times insufferably conceited."
Continue reading: Hey Girl: Ryan Gosling's 'Lost River' Isn't Very Good
With his writing-directing debut, Ryan Gosling shows audacious skill as a visual artist but never quite manages to recount a story that grabs hold of the audience. It's a stunningly gorgeous film packed with strong, earthy performances from a starry cast playing against type. But there's no momentum at all to the narrative, which is packed with random symbolism that never quite resolves into anything either meaningful or emotionally engaging.
Lost River is a decaying, abandoned city on the edge of a lake created by damming up a river and flooding another town. In what's left of their neighbourhood, Billy (Christina Hendricks) lives in her family home with her sons: a toddler and a teen named Bones (Iain De Caestecker), who helps support the household by scavenging for copper in the vacant buildings nearby. But he's encroaching on the turf of self-proclaimed gangster Bully (Matt Smith), who is intent on exacting vicious revenge. Meanwhile, next-door neighbour Rat (Ronan) is caring for her delusional granny (Barbara Steele) and trying to help Bones. And when the new bank manager Dave (Ben Mendelsohn) turns down Billy's cry for help, she takes a job at his seedy underworld nightclub alongside Cat (Eva Mendes).
Aside from some blood-soaked cabaret, what goes on in this nightclub remains rather mysterious, as Billy finds higher-paying work in the purple-hued basement fetish rooms. But then everything in this film is enigmatic, as Gosling deliberately refuses to connect the dots. This gives the film an intriguing David Lynch-style tone, although it lacks Lynch's eerie resonance. There's also a touch of John Waters-style trashiness and Terrence Malick-style natural beauty, plus the clear influence of Gosling's heavily stylised past directors Nicolas Winding Refn (Drive and Only God Forgives) and Derek Cianfrance (Blue Monday and The Place Beyond the Pines). In other words, almost everything in this film feels like a reference to another movie, but it's expertly assembled to look fabulous from start to finish, with some seriously striking sequences along the way.

Yes Ryan Gosling still wears sweatpants and you can too!
Ryan Gosling has come to the defence of girlfriend Eva Mendes, after she called sweatpants the "No. 1 cause of divorce in America!” during an interview with Extras. In the interview, Mendes had been dishing about her new found motherhood when she ended up making the comments which have since caused quite a stir on social media.
Ryan has defended his girlfriend's comments on Twitter
“Obviously sweatpants thing was a joke,” Ryan tweeted. “Wearing them now. That's right, tweeting in sweatpants. Rats! Said too much! You win again Twitter.”
Mendes has been opening about mother as well as how she keeps Ryan Gosling happy at home.
Eva Mendes has given her first interview since welcoming daughter Esmeralda six months ago in which the ‘Hitch’ actress describes her new life as a mother. Alongside talk of sleeping patterns, Mendes, who is dating Hollywood hunk Ryan Gosling, also dished to Extras about why she thinks sweatpants are the “number one cause of divorce in America.”
Mendes told Extras that since daughter Esmeralda arrived last September she now has a new appreciation for her own mother. “Now I understand so much, my mother’s never gotten more 'I love you so much mommy' texts, I mean, randomly… ya, I get it now,” the actress said.
As a director, Ryan Gosling might be great. But as an actor, he will always and forever be remembered for "Hey, girl."
Last year, Ryan Gosling completed his directorial debut Lost River and, just like most of the things Ryan Gosling does, it's a little bit odd and a little bit confusing. The film is screening at SXSW this weekend, a second chance at a premiere, after the not-so-warm welcome it received at Cannes.
Did Gosling turn things around at SXSW?
The film is also set for a theatrical and VOD release next month, so the freak-friendly atmosphere at South by Southwest Austin should be the perfect space to gather some more favourable reviews. Unfortunately for Gosling, even among the hipster, indie, counter-cultural crowd, his reputation apparently precedes him.

Ryan Gosling is interested in taking the only major male role in Paul Feig's Ghostbusters 3, while Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone are also being sought for parts.

As Freddie Prinze Jr explains his dislike of Kiefer Sutherland, which other co-stars have struggled to get on?
Recently, Freddie Prinze Jr. revealed that he thought Kiefer Sutherland was ‘the most unprofessional’ person he’d ever worked with during his time on the hit show 24 in 2010. While promoting his new Disney XD series Star Wars Rebels at the San Diego Comic-Con, the 38-year-old explained that he took a hiatus from Hollywood as a result of his difficulty playing Cole Ortiz on 24.
It would seem, then, that actors are often a lot better at their profession than we give them credit for. While viewers watch scenes of love, tenderness, friendship and camaraderie, backstage, certain actors have all sorts of problems with each other.

Canadian actress Rachel McAdams was surprised when hosts at Today showed footage from her audition for The Notebook.
The romantic film, which has just celebrated its ten year anniversary, was a global hit and launched the careers of Rachel McAdams and Ryan Gosling. Yet when presented with footage from her audition, McAdams couldn't help but cringe at her younger self acting in a emotional scene.
McAdams played heiress Allie Hamilton in The Notebook

Let's get real here.
Hey girl, did you know that Ryan Gosling is about to be a dad? Neither did anyone else until this week, but when he and girlfriend Eva Mendes broke the news, the internet exploded with highly inappropriate amounts of “grief.” Well, it was mostly just Twitter. Well, mostly just overdramatic Gosling and Notebook fans. But in honor of these poor lovestruck souls (you can read some choice tweets below) we’ve compiled a list of five other people you are never going to date – no matter how much you’d like to.
Gosling and Mendes got together in 2011, so he's technically been off the market for some time now.
Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie. When asked to choose between this power couple, most people would be fine with either. Jolie is intelligent, charitable, worldly and stunning. Brad Pitt, even after his hey-day is… how do we put this delicately… hot, not to mention a creative and business-savvy force to be reckoned with. Fortunately for them, they seem to have found a good thing – lasting marriage, a whole litter of children and thriving careers to boot. Unfortunately for us, this means that both are off the market for good. The same largely applies to Beyonce and Jay Z, by the way.
Could Eva Mendes be seven months pregnant with Ryan Gosling's child?
Eva Mendes could be seven months pregnant with Ryan Gosling's baby, unconfirmed reports have suggested. As well as expecting a child, the couple could also be gearing up to get married very soon, if reports from OK! Magazine are to be believed.
"Eva is thrilled. She's been ready for motherhood for a while now, and to be sharing this experience with Ryan is a dream come true for her," an insider told the US magazine.
The source underlined the potential significance of fatherhood for Gosling, saying "The source continued, "Ryan grew up without a dad, so he always said when he had kids, he'd be there no matter what. This is it for him."
Although their on-screen romance may have seemed perfect, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdam's off-screen relationship whilst filming 'The Notebook' was hardly blissful.
Everyone may rave about Ryan Gosling's chivalrous portrayal of Noah Calhoun in The Notebook but he was hardly as gallant off screen with his co-star Rachel McAdams. The Notebook's director, Nick Cassavetes, spoke to VH1 about how Gosling and McAdams got on whilst filming the 2004 romantic drama. Apparently it wasn't well!
Rachel McAdams starred in The Notebook as Allie.
Gosling and McAdams dated for two years after they had met on the set of the Notebook but it wasn't always smooth sailing for the couple as Cassavetes described. Gosling reportedly demanded McAdams be removed with the set as he was struggling to work with her and even wanted a stand in actress to run lines with. Cassavetes tells of one incident in which the pair was not getting on well and Gosling asked him to remove McAdams from the set. He even requested another actress be brought in so he could practise his lines.
Turns out Gosling and McAdams' legendary 'Notebook' performance wasn't as easy as it looked.
The Notebook has just turned ten, bringing the classic romance movie back into the headlines with a deluge of new interviews and trivia regarding the film. Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, who play the couple central to the movie adaptation's story, have long been considered as one of the most powerful onscreen couples.
Adapted from the novel of the same name by Nicholas Sparks, the story charts two lovers who fall in love during the early 1940s. Local country boy Noah Calhoun and heiress Allie Hamilton embark on a romance despite a myriad of issues, including the implications of their different classes and disapproval of Allie's parents.
The chemistry between the pair was so intense that the actors dated in real-life after wrapping filming. However, director Nick Cassavetes has now revealed that the two didn't exactly hit it off during filming. "Maybe I'm not supposed to tell this story, but they were really not getting along one day on set. Really not," he told VH-1.
An unofficial Facebook page tricked nearly 1 million people into believing the 33 year-old actor adopted a baby after his friend died of cancer.
Fans of Ryan Gosling were left feeling red-faced this past weekend.
The 33 year-old actor was recently at the center of a Father's Day hoax that manage to fool almost 1 million people, this past Sunday (June 15th).
A fake Facebook page, claiming to be Gosling's official site, shared a photograph of the star holding a baby.
Nearly a million Facebook users were fooled by a fake Ryan Gosling account which claimed the actor had tried to adopt a baby.
Well, this is awkward. Nearly one million fans were tricked by a post made on a Facebook account which they thought was run by actor Ryan Gosling. The fake account posted an image of Gosling and a baby along with a 146-word message reportedly written by Gosling. In the message the fake Gosling told the story of “how [he] became a father.”
A million Ryan Gosling fans were fooled by the post on the fake Facebook account
The message reads: “This father's day, I've decided to tell the story of how I became a father. This little guy was only 9 months old when I became his dad. His mom and I were great friends before she passed away from cancer. I promised her, I'd always look after him. So, I had decided to step up and become his dad. He brought me so much joy. He was my everything.”
