Ryan Gosling is used to being the one directed in shirtless situations, but the roles were reversed yesterday on the Detroit set of How to Catch a Monster when Ryan called the shots. The actor continued production on his writing and directorial debut by shooting scenes with Matt Smith, who has a huge fanbase thanks to his turn as Doctor Who. Matt showed off a shaved head and very muscular physique in the scenes, which saw him singing while standing in a moving car and lifting weights. The fantasy noir also stars Ryan’s The Place Beyond the Pines co-stars Eva Mendes and Ben Mendelsohn, his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks, and Irish actress Saoirse Ronan. It was also recently announced that Warner Bros. had acquired the movie.
