The casting of Ryan Gosling as Ken for the upcoming “Barbie” live-action movie makes perfect sense. Not that Gosling is plastic- but he *does* have that chiseled physique. Pair the “Blade Runner 2049” star with Margot Robbie as the iconic Mattel blonde and Greta Gerwig directing- “Barbie” sounds more and more interesting.
This morning, Warner Bros. Pictures officially released the first look at Gosling as Ken. Spray tan, white blonde hair, and personalized underwear.
We also know America Ferrera, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, Alexandra Shipp, Emma Mackey, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Issa Rae, and Michael Cera are on cast. But, no details on who any of them are playing in the Barbie universe.
“Barbie” is scheduled to hit theaters on July 21st, 2023.
