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 »

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.

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 »

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.

You know the old joke, .What do you get when you cross the eleventh Doctor and Young Hercules?. No? That.s because it.s not a joke, people. It.s real life news. According to Variety, Matt Smith, the eleventh and current incarnation of Britain.s cult hero Doctor Who, is coming to America and then heading to the underworld for How to Catch a Monster, the directorial debut from Ryan Gosling - who is producing the film under his Phantasma Films banner. The movie is described as a dark, surreal fantasy noir about a city slowly turning into an underworld, and is centered on a single mother and her two children, one of which finds a secret road that leads to an underwater town. A creepy fantasy that isn.t based on a book that also doesn.t have Tim Burton.s name anywhere near it? I.m totally »
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 ..."
