LARS AND THE REAL GIRL

RYAN GOSLING (Lars) first caught Hollywood's attention with the role of Bosley in Remember the Titans with Denzel Washington, but it was landing the challenging lead role of Danny in the controversial film The Believer that proved a career breakthrough, garnering Gosling unanimous rave reviews and industry-wide attention. In addition to taking the Grand Jury Prize at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival, Gosling also received a prestigious 2002 IFP Spirit nomination for Best Actor. He was awarded the Golden Ram for Best Actor by the Russian National Critics Association and was nominated for Best Actor by the London Film Critics' Circle.

Gosling returned to Sundance the following year with the independent feature The Slaughter Rule, playing the emotionally vulnerable and estranged Roy opposite David Morse. Gosling's desire to pick intricate and complex characters led him to being cast in the role of Leland in The United States of Leland, opposite Don Cheadle and Kevin Spacey. The film was accepted for dramatic competition at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival. Gosling also received strong reviews for his work as the nihilistic predator Richard in the psychological thriller Murder by Numbers, co-starring Sandra Bullock and directed by Barbet Schroeder.

Following the success of Nick Cassavetes' The Notebook, Gosling starred in Stay, opposite Ewan McGregor and Naomi Watts for director Marc Forster. He then starred in the critically acclaimed Half Nelson for which he received both an Oscar® and Screen Actors Guild nomination for best actor, followed by Fracture with Anthony Hopkins.

In addition to Lars and the Real Girl, audiences will soon see Gosling in The Other Side and The Good Heart.
