Gosling goes back to work.

Ryan Gosling is back, and looking better than ever.

In his first appearance since welcoming daughter Esmerelda Amada with girlfriend Eva Mendes on Sept. 12, the 33-year-old actor was spotted on the Atlanta set of his film The Nice Guys. And that's quite the killer 'stache. He even manages to make his '70s outfit -- blue pants, a printed button-up shirt and a brown tie -- look hot.

Also co-starring Matt Bomer, Russell Crowe and Kim Basinger, The Nice Guys revolves around a private eye (Gosling) who investigates the apparent suicide of a fading porn star in 1970s Los Angeles and uncovers a conspiracy.

'Superman' TV Show 'Krypton' in Development with David S. Goyer

27 October 2014 8:37 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

After helping to bring Superman back to life on the big screen with Man of Steel, writer David S. Goyer is reportedly attached to a TV show entitled Krypton, set on Superman's home planet.

No story details have been confirmed, and it isn't known if the series is set up at a network at this time, but Bleeding Cool suggests that this series might be using the same formula as Fox and DC Comics' Gotham, which is set years before a young Bruce Wayne ever becomes Batman. It's possible that this Krypton show could include the "House of El," the villain Brainiac, an "end-of-the-world cult" and several dragons, but nothing has been confirmed at this time.

In the DC movie universe, Krypton was depicted in Man of Steel, as Jor-El (Russell Crowe) sent his son Kal-El (Henry Cavill) to Earth before his home planet was destroyed. The planet has »

New Dad Ryan Gosling Returns to Work (and Grows a Mustache!) After Birth of Baby Girl Esmeralda—See the Pic!

24 October 2014 1:40 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

Apparently, part of Ryan Gosling's daddy duties is to grow some manly facial hair. The new parent made his post-baby debut today when he returned to work on his film The Nice Guys in Atlanta, and we couldn't help but notice that 'stache on his face! Perhaps being a father has given him less time to groom his face? Or maybe his character in the movie calls for some upper lip fur? Or! Maybe Gosling is getting a head start on Movember?! Either way, it's Ryan Gosling and he looks perfect. The Shane Black-helmed flick is set in 1970s Los Angeles and follows a private eye (Gosling) and a muscle-for-hire (Russell Crowe) who must work together to solve the case of a missing girl and the »

Could Kim Basinger be gearing up to bag another Oscar? Possibly so, as we’ve just learned via THR that the actress has signed on to appear in Warner Bros.’ period noir, The Nice Guys.

Co-written and directed by Shane Black and set in 1970’s Los Angeles, the movie has acquired a tasty cast line-up that continues to sizzle with each new announcement. So far, we know that Ryan Gosling is on board to play Holland March, a socially-inept L.A. private detective who befriends Russell Crowe’s musclebound goon. Why do they hook up? Does it matter?

But alright, for those who want to know, the pair join forces to solve the mystery of a missing girl and the death of a porn star.
