'''Ryan Thomas Gosling''' (born 1980) is a Canadian actor who got his start as a Mouseketeer on ''TheMickeyMouseClub'' in the early 90's before doing several other TV shows. His first major role was the Nicholas Sparks romantic 2004 film ''Film/TheNotebook''. It established him as a heartthrob, and over the next few years he drew critical acclaim for his turns as the lead characters in both the offbeat comedy ''Film/LarsAndTheRealGirl'' and the inner-city drama ''Half Nelson'' (which received him an AcademyAward nomination).

In recent years, he has established himself firmly as a powerful dramatic actor, with special mention going to his [[NoNameGiven nameless]] lead character in the action drama ''Film/{{Drive}}''. Also well-known on the Internet for the [[MemeticMutation Feminist Ryan Gosling meme]], where someone takes a picture of the man and adds (often pseudo-) feminist text that begins with "Hey girl." [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext We don't get it either.]]

He's also become something of a MemeticSexGod. And, according to millions of fans, he's Franchise/{{Batman}}.
