    'Drive' Star Ryan Gosling Sets His Sights On The Director's Chair

    Talks Developing ‘Logan’s Run;’ Remains Suspiciously Coy On Malick ProjectIt seems somewhat unnecessary to provide an introduction for Ryan Gosling. America’s Canadian Sweetheart has cultivated a resume over the years that makes him nearly impossible to avoid.

    Aw, man, this whole Ethan Hunt-in-a-hoodie motif is gonna be a thing, isn't it? There are ideas less cool than a forty-nine year old man in a hoodie, but we can't think of any right now, particularly with this new poster from "Mission: Impossible: Ghost: Protocol: Colon: Extra Colon: Metalstorm: The...
