Turning 31 yesterday, Ryan Thomas Gosling has fully emerged on the worldwide scene as a force to be reckoned with. After gaining more than the approval of women everywhere in “The Notebook“, Gosling then starred in “Half Nelson“, which earned him a nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role at the Academy Awards. After a 3 year hiatus during the making of Blue Valentine [review], Gosling has had a huge 2011, with a role in Crazy, Stupid, Love, Drive and Ides of March, three completely different roles and all three movies very successful.

With a full-bodied body of work now behind him, the future holds infinite possibilities, and his upcoming works all look to be very promising, with another Drive-esque crime drama coming in 2013, a 40’s/50’s gangster movie with Sean Penn in 2012, a Terrence Malick movie in 2013, and another Nicolas Winding Refn movie about thai-boxing. Awesome.

Fun fact: Was a member of the Mickey Mouse Club, and at one point lived with Justin Timberlake’s family.
