Cool Videos: Check out Ryan Gosling's Acting Range where he can play all sorts of New Yorkers

Mar. 19, 2013by:

Before we get to far into this, I like Ryan Gosling. I think the guy is talented. Even in movies like CRAZY STUPID LOVE, the guy comes across as likeable. Now, I know there are haters out there who think the movie DRIVE was bad, but I loved it. However, with every new trailer featuring Gosling, I feel like he is channeling that same exact character over and over again. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES looks really good, but it feels like DRIVE on a motorcycle.

This new video from Funny or Die perfectly captures that feeling I couldn't quite put my finger on regarding Ryan Gosling. I think he is still very talented (see THE BELIEVER or HALF NELSON) but has gotten himself stuck in a loop where he has to play the brooding anti-hero.

The only thing that would have made this video better would have been if Gosling had been up to mock himself. The guy playing him bears no resemblance to the actor, but I found myself laughing any way. Check it out.

Liking this doesn't mean you hate Ryan Gosling.

The video was unfunny and terrible.

Gosling is one of the best actors working today next to Robert Downey Jr, Tom Hanks, and Leonardo DiCaprio.

Gosling's one of my favorite

But i can totally see where this skit comes from. It mostly draws from "Gangster Squad" and "Drive" where were two of his weakest acting roles.

Real Gosling range goes from "Half Nelson" to "Blue Valentine" with "Lars and the Real Girl" and "Remember the Titans" as notable mentions

You thought his acting was weak in Drive?!?! If anything it was one of his strongest performances of his career and in my opinion should have been considered for an Academy Award for Best Actor.

the video here was pretty spot on with his acting in that movie. It was flat and emotionless. Those scenes of violent (which were stupidly over the top anyway) looked like he would finally break the mold of the character and go off the deep end (in a good way) but he would then hold back and collect his dull composure.

It was boring to watch and the complementary violence just seemed out of place and never went into how those 2 sides of the character live in the same body. I mostly blame

It wasn't the only fault i had with the movie and i did enjoy some aspect (the music) but i just think it was that great
