WILL IT HAPPEN? STRONG buzz that Ryan Gosling is being considered to take over the James Bond movie series in a few years. GOOD idea?
Is Gosling set to be the next James Bond? Rumors that the producers are looking for someone slightly different to play James Bond emerged in March 2015. One of the names who keeps cropping up is Ryan Gosling.
Every man, at some point in his life, wishes he could be James Bond. And with the news that Daniel Craig may well be out as 007, there are a whole bunch of actors from London to Ottawa wondering what they could bring to the role.
Gosling’s star has been rising in recent years thank to critically acclaimed roles in Gangster Squad (2013), The Place Beyond the Pines (2012) and The Ides of March (2011). His commercial appeal is growing, too.
