Don Jon and the rise of the pin-up director

10 November 2013 4:05 PM, PST | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Ryan Gosling, James Franco and Joseph Gordon-Levitt are the hottest men in Hollywood. So why aren't they sticking to the path of previous pin-ups? Nicholas Barber on a new wave of actor-directors

Read enough interviews with Hollywood film stars and two themes keep cropping up. Theme one is that the star in question is working on a screenplay. Theme two is that they hope to become a director. Perhaps we can all take some comfort from the knowledge that, however much power and influence these stars may have, the vast majority never finish that screenplay or direct that film.

A few stars do get around to directing when they've passed their acting peak (Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, Dustin Hoffman). A few manage the transition once they've established themselves as A-listers (George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes). And some (Ben Affleck) turn to directing in desperation, following several years of lurching »

Thn Count 5 Reasons Why We Love Ryan Gosling

3 August 2013 2:49 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Mr Ryan ‘Swoon’ Gosling, the man who was set out to be a star at the tender age of 8 while singing ballads in the Mickey Mouse Club and crashing at Justin Timberlake’s house. We all knew he was going to be famous, but it took him a while to reach the status of making all men and woman feel in one way or other drawn to him. As he returns in Only God Forgives with Drive writer and director Nicolas Winding Refn, we at Thn are not immune to the Gosling charm and here are our top 5 reasons why we love The Gos – the non-pervy edition.

1. Triple Threat

He can sing, he can dance and he can act. The Mousketeer made a name for himself by singing 8o’s ballads on the Mickey Mouse Club. He and buddy Zach Shields also sing in their own band called Dead Man »

Posterized: Ryan Gosling

30 March 2013 1:00 PM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

This, the Ryan Gosling edition of Posterized, has the cleanest trajectory of any I've done. It's like Young Hercules never put a foot wrong once he left minor teen success on tv for the movies at 20. It's just one steady climb up to superstardom: the showy debuts, the solidifying his rep years, the Oscar nominated and populist breakthroughs and then on to superstardom in 2011.

Hey girl, how many have you seen?

Ryan Gosling Is Proud Of 'Young Hercules'

9 January 2013 11:13 AM, PST | Huffington Post | See recent Huffington Post news »

Ryan Gosling is one of Hollywood's most popular leading men, but back in the day, he was swinging swords at imaginary monsters as the title character in "Young Hercules." However, Gosling isn't ashamed of the fantasy series that was a spinoff of the popular syndicated "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," starring Kevin Sorbo as adult Hercules.

Entertainment reporter Jake Hamilton asked Gosling, "In your career, what is a performance you've given, something that you're insanely proud of, that you're so glad to have been a part of, that you feel maybe not enough people know about, that's not appreciated as well as it should be?"

Without missing a beat, Gosling replied, "My work on 'Young Hercules.'"

"I had a fake tan, leather pants," Gosling said. "I was fighting imaginary monsters -- they weren't really there, but I was acting like they were there. So ..."
