Ryan Gosling Is Blue & Cool In Poster For 'Only God Forgives' Plus Some New Pics

That Nicolas Winding Refn‘s “Only God Forgives” is one of our 10 Most Anticipated Films Of The 2013 Cannes Film Festival is pretty much a no-brainer. You already know everything there is to know about the Ryan Gosling starrer, that finds him on a quest for vengeance in Bangkok, after his brother is murdered, so let’s shine a bit of light on one of the co-stars in the movie, Vithaya Pansringarm.

A couple new pics of the actor in the film — where he plays the dangerous and mysterious policeman Chang — have landed, but it might surprise you to learn that he’s a relative newcomer. Pansringarm actually studied and worked in graphic design in the United States, before moving back to Bangkok in 1987, where he opened a dance studio with his wife, a ballet dancer. He only stumbled into acting when he was asked by Aussie cinematographer/director Wade Muller to take a role in a short film, and from there things kept snowballing, until now he’s getting ready to walk the red carpet at the most prestigious film festival in the world.

In additon, a new poster has arrived (via RecentMoviePosters) with Gosling all blue and cool. “Only God Forgives” screens on Cannes on Tuesday, May 22 and opens on July 19th.
