From Cameos to Starring Roles, Here Are the Ten Best Ryan Gosling Movies

Ryan Gosling is one of the few Hollywood stars who enjoyed incredible success as child actors.

Born on November 12, 1980, Gosling made his acting debut by joining the cast of Disney Channel’s The Mickey Mouse Club (1993 – 1995). He subsequently appeared in a series of other family television shows, including the horror anthology series Are You Afraid of the Dark? (1995) and the Goosebumps (1996).

After making a name for himself on television, Ryan Gosling landed his first film starring role in the American drama film The Believer (2001). Gosling has since featured in at least 25 critically-acclaimed movies.

Here are the ten best Ryan Gosling movies.

10. Remember The Titans (2000)

IMDB Rating: 7.8/10

Remember The Titans is a biological sports film set in 1971. It’s based on the true story of African American coach Herman Boone and his efforts to integrate the T.C Williams High School football team in Alexandria, Virginia.

Coach Herman Boone is portrayed by legendary actor Denzel Washington. The movie also stars Bill Yoast (Will Patton) as Boone’s assistant coach, as well as real-life athletes Julius Campbell (Wood Harris) and Gerry Bertier (Ryan Hurst).

Ryan Gosling appears as Alan Bosley. His role in the movie is somewhat overshadowed by that of other cast members like the coach and his assistant, as well as athletes Campbell and Bertier.

However, Remember The Titans was critical to Gosling’s acting career. Following his stellar performance in the film, Gosling went on to land numerous movie roles, including his first starring role in the 2001 film, The Believer.

9. The Big Short (2015)

IMDB Rating: 7.8/10

The Big Short exemplifies greed and the lengths wealthy folks are willing to go to capitalize on any potential money-minting opportunity.

In 2008, Wall Street guru Michael Burry (Christian Bale) senses an imminent financial crisis after picking up some warning signs in the U.S housing market. He bets against the real estate market by staking a whopping $1 billion of his investors’ money in credit default swaps.

Burry’s actions attract the attention of all manner of opportunists, including banker Jared Vennett (Ryan Gosling) and hedge fund specialist Mark Baum (Steve Carell). They discover major loopholes in the unstable mortgage-backed real estate market and capitalize on them, raking in millions of dollars in the process.

8. Blue Valentine (2010)

IMDB Rating: 7.3/10

Blue Valentine is a romantic drama film that follows the dysfunctional marriage between Dean (Ryan Gosling) and Cindy (Michelle Williams). The movie has a simple underlying message – that marital love doesn’t last so long.

Like most couples, the marriage between Dean and Cindy seems good at the outset. But when personality and career-related challenges begin to creep in, major cracks emerge in the marriage.

Several attempts to rekindle their relationship bear no fruit and the love between the once-bubbly couple eventually dies out. At the center of these intrigues is a young daughter whom the couple must raise together even as they continue to pull apart from each other.

7. Crazy, Stupid, Love. (2011)

IMDB Rating: 7.4/10

Cal has no option but to grant Emily her wish. But at 40, he starts to wonder whether he’ll be able to fall in love again.

Then fate sends Jacob Palmer (Ryan Gosling) his way. A self-styled playboy, Jacob commits to teaching Cal how to rock it in the dating world and win the heart of any woman he desires.

IMDB Rating: 7.3/10

5. The Nice Guys (2016)

March and Healy must now tread with caution. They’re forced to search for the young girl while looking over their shoulders for anyone who might want them dead.

4. The Notebook (2004)

IMDB Rating: 7.8/10

The Notebook is a sobering film about true love. The movie reinforces the belief that if two people were meant to be together, they’ll definitely wind up together no matter the number of obstacles that lie in their way.

Set in the 1940s, the film follows mill worker Noah Calhoun (Ryan Gosling) and his wealthy girlfriend Allie (Rachel McAdams). Noah and Allie seem like a match made in heaven. But Allie’s parents do not approve of this union.

Things get nastier when Noah goes off to serve in the Second World War, as Allie finds herself falling for another man. However, the two love birds eventually get together when Noah returns several years later.

However, everything that could go wrong with the heist does go wrong, leaving the Driver and Standard badly exposed.
