- Despite the fact that Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” won’t be released for another year, Ryan Gosling never misses an opportunity to wax lyrical about his upcoming role as the plastic boy-toy Ken.
Even if Greta Gerwig’s “Barbie” doesn’t come out for another year, Ryan Gosling finds a way to take every opportunity to wax poetic about his future part as the plastic boy-toy Ken.
Gosling was eager (“Ken-ergetic,” perhaps) to explain the previously untold tale of how his casting as Ken was fated during an interview this week on “The Tonight Show.”
According to Ryan Gosling, the role of Ken was once offered to him by director Greta Gerwig. He told host Jimmy Fallon that the script was the “greatest [he’d] ever read,” but he wanted to pause and think about the choice outside.
He entered his backyard and saw a “squished lemon” beside an otherwise spotless, shirtless Ken doll lying face down in the mud.
The upcoming Ken texted Gerwig a picture of the powerful event, possibly a message from the universe.
“I promised to be your Ken, I said. Because his tale must be told, “Telling Fallon, Gosling.
And even though the movie just finished, Gosling is still bringing up his favorite Mattel character everywhere he goes, even when he’s promoting his other work, and he vehemently defends Ken from critics.
“I was astonished to see some folks clutching their pearls about my Ken as if they had ever given Ken a second thought before this,” the speaker said. Gosling said while feigning anger and accusation. They never engaged in play with Ken.
The topic turned depressing and existential: “Nobody plays with Ken, man,” moaned Gosling. He is merely an accessory and also not even the coolest one.
Gosling had thought about the flaws of Ken’s ostensibly comfortable life before. Gosling claimed that living in plastic is far harder than the life of the fictitious mercenary he portrays in Netflix’s “The Gray Man” in an interview with Entertainment Tonight earlier this month.
In the prior interview, Gosling stated, “Ken’s got no money, he’s got no work, he’s got no car, he’s got no house.” He is dealing with some issues.
But he promised Fallon last week that the “Barbie” movie would be considerably more enjoyable than Gosling’s heartbreaking portrayal of Ken suggest.
He explained, “Those are just facts about Ken; they are not narrative details.” That is how Ken lives.
We can only hope Gosling will continue inserting Ken into all of his talks until “Barbie” arrives in theatres in July 2023.
