Creator: Ryan Gosling

Ryan Thomas Gosling (born 1980) is a Canadian actor who got his start as a Mouseketeer on The Mickey Mouse Club in the early 90's before doing several other TV shows. His first major role was the Nicholas Sparks romantic 2004 film The Notebook. 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 Lars and the Real Girl and the inner-city drama Half Nelson (which received him an Academy Award nomination).

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

He's also become something of a Memetic Sex God. And, according to millions of fans, he's Batman.
