I love, love, love Ryan Gosling and who doesn’t? He’s a respectable actor, and a down-to-earth star. He returns to the loving arms of his “Blue Valentine” director, Derek Cianfrance, for the gripping, heartfelt, intense “The Place Beyond the Pines” where he plays Luke, a circus motorcycle performer whose sins create a ripple of events spanning generations. In this interview, we talked about:
*** The last time we saw him in a carnival, it was for “The Notebook,” what made him want to go back into the circus scene?
*** What attracted him to making “The Place Behyond the Pines?”
*** His fantasies!
*** What attracted him to his character Luke?
*** The self-mythologizing of the character
*** The first time his character sees the baby, Tony Pizza
*** His first directorial debut, “How to Catch a Monster”
*** My favorite Mouseketeer ever, next to Annette Funicello and Britney Spears of course
