Ryan Gosling HATED Rachel McAdams

“-In my arms lover!

-Take one more step and I’ll deck you…”

Thirty plus year olds have Titanic, but most women in their twenties today would agree, The Notebook was it, one of their absolute favorite movies. I’m not ashamed to say it’s one of mine as well. Adapted from a Nicholas Sparks novel, the film was a huge hit in 2004 launching its two young stars, Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams, into the stratosphere.

Audiences swooned for the epic romance on screen just as they swooned for the apparent epic romance in real life, as Gosling and McAdams very publicly dated for three to four years. They were the Edward & Bella of their time. People loved to love them, equating the two thespians with their characters and dreaming of a happily ever after. Except it turns out they couldn’t stand each other. Whoops. Continue reading

The Gosling Lantern

Oscar-nominated actor Ryan Gosling (Fracture) is apparently the frontrunner for the lead in the forthcoming adaptation of the DC Comics property The Green Lantern. If you’re not familiar with the comic book, created by unofficial Batman co-creator Bill Finger and artist Martin Nodell, The Green Lantern is not a single superhero but rather an interplanetary corps of peacekeepers. According to Wikipedia:

Each Green Lantern possesses a power ring that gives the user great control over the physical world as long as the wielder has sufficient willpower and strength to wield it. While the ring of the Golden Age Green Lantern (Alan Scott) was magically powered, the rings worn by all subsequent Lanterns were technological creations of the Guardians of the Universe, who granted such rings to worthy candidates. These individuals made up the intergalactic police force known as the Green Lantern Corps.

The film, which is to be directed by Everwood creator Greg Berlanti and is set for 2010, will reportedly focus on the character of Hal Jordan, easily the best-known of the human Green Lanterns. What do you think of Ryan Gosling as Hal Jordan?

Sam Raimi throws hissy-fit, demands James Franco be cast as Jack Ryan

Sam Raimi, who’s apparently attached to direct the next Jack Ryan movie, is reportedly in a feud with Paramount over who to cast in the lead role. Basically, Sam wants James Franco and Paramount doesn’t, believing him to be too frail. Ryan Gosling was the last actor rumored for the role, and what you’re telling me he’s more buff than Franco? Raimi, who directed Franco in all three Spider-Man films is supposedly threatening to quit the movie should he not have his way.

Should he be cast, James Franco would be the fourth actor to portray novelist Tom Clancy’s popular hero after Alec Baldwin (The Hunt For Red October), Harrison Ford (Patriot Games and Clear And Present Danger) and Ben Affleck (The Sum Of All Fears). Personally, I think Franco could pull it off, but the real question is why is Paramount having so much trouble with this franchise? All the Jack Ryan movies have been well received and they’ve all made good money at the box-office. Why didn’t Ben Affleck get recast for a movie that could have come out three years ago? And, more shockingly, why does Paramount apparently want to go with an original Jack Ryan story instead of using all the books they have left?

Jack Ryan books which haven’t been adapted yet: Red Rabbit, The Cardinal Of The Kremlin, Debt Of Honor, Executive Orders, Rainbow Six, The Bear And The Dragon… What gives?
