Answer: no. But he gave it a damn good try.
That’s the teaser poster for Ryan Gosling’s upcoming Only God Forgives. Sounds menacing, and then you pair it with the above image. He’s re-teamed with his Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn for a flick about a Bangkok boxing club manager seeking revenge for the death of his brother. Looks like it gets a little rough. He’s so deliriously sexy in Drive with the scorpion jacket and the elevator pummeling. How can they mess with the formula like that? And there’s probably not even a massage-leading-to-sex-scene with Michael Fassbender.
On second thought – he’s still got that sexy Gosling shape. And part of his face is ok. We can throw a steak on the bad eye and call it even and still fuck? It’s Ryan Gosling. He could be a quadruple amputee and many of us would still want to get on that.
