Ryan Gosling

Ryan Thomas Gosling (born November 12, 1980) is a Canadian actor and musician. He began his career as a child star on the Disney Channel’s Mickey Mouse Club (1993–95) and went on to appear in other family entertainment programs including Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995) and Goosebumps (1996). His first starring film role was as a Jewish neo-Nazi in The Believer (2001), and he went on to star in several independent film, including Murder by Numbers (2002), The Slaughter Rule (2002), and The United States of Leland (2003).

Gosling came to the attention of a wider audience in 2004 with a leading role in the commercially successful romantic drama The Notebook. His performance as a drug-addicted teacher in Half Nelson (2006) was nominated for an Academy Award and his performance as a socially inept loner in Lars and the Real Girl (2007) was nominated for a Golden Globe Award. After a three-year acting hiatus, Gosling starred in the marital drama Blue Valentine (2010), earning him a second Golden Globe nomination. Gosling co-starred in three mainstream films in 2011—the romantic comedy-drama Crazy, Stupid, Love, the political drama The Ides of March, and the action thriller Drive—and received two Golden Globe nominations. Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River was released in 2014 to poor reviews. Greater success came to Gosling when he starred in two critically acclaimed films—the financial comedy-drama The Big Short (2015) and the musical La La Land (2016). For the latter, he won a Golden Globe Award and received a second Oscar nomination.
