Ryan Gosling has proven he's got a goofy side in interviews (and, OK, maybe on The Mickey Mouse Club), but on the big screen we usually see a more serious side to the actor. Don't get me wrong—Gosling's chops make him a welcome addition and treat to watch in any movie, but I'm particularly psyched that he's going in a new direction in his upcoming project. Gosling will be starring opposite Steve Carell, playing the "suave" best friend in a comedy about a father (Carell) in the midst of marital and family woes.
The snarky sidekick often gets the most laughs, so I can't wait to see Gosling making wisecracks and trying to offer advice to Carell. Plus, the word "suave" implies a certain degree of smoothness and a tiny bit of arrogance, which I can see Gosling having a lot of fun with. What's your take—are you excited to see Gosling tackle a comedy for the first time?
