Ryan Gosling Plays It Tough in Gangster Squad, Reunites With Emma Stone (VIDEO)
The trailer for Ryan Gosling’s next film, Gangster Squad, is full of all the things that make going to the movies fun: Period costumes, tough-guy accents, mob bosses, piles of money going up in flames, and big guns. Judging from all the pitch-perfect eye candy in the trailer, we’re thinking that director Ruben Fleischer is either obsessed with Quentin Tarantino and Martin Scorsese, or wants to be the next Tarantino or Scorsese.
Either way, there’s plenty to look at, not the least of which is our hero (and frequent lust object), Mr. Ryan Gosling. Paired up once again with Crazy, Stupid, Love co-star Emma Stone as his love interest, Romeo Ryan plays a cop alongside Josh Brolin and Nick Nolte, trying to take down gangster boss Sean Penn. Maybe we’re the only ones, but it reminds us a little too much of The Departed, putting Sean in the Jack Nicholson role, and Ryan in the Matt Damon role (as the good cop turned bad).
We’ll still see it, just because we love when Ryan slicks his hair back and wears retro suits. No man wears the heck out of a button-down vest like Ry Guy.
