    Ryan Gosling Is In Talks To Play Ken In The

    Michael Keaton’s Ken in Toy Story 3 is certainly big (plastic) shoes to fill, tbh.

    Y’all, it has been the hottest of minutes since we’ve seen Ryan Gosling in a new movie. In fact, the last time we saw him on the big screen was in 2018’s First Man!

    It’s been three! Whole! Years!

    Well, the good news here is that we won’t have to wait too much longer to see him back in action, since Deadline is reporting that he’s in final talks to play Ken in Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie movie!

On March 13, 2001, Mattel toy company celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Ken doll which was originally introduced March 13, 1961 at the American International Toy Fair. Originating with his crew cut look and evolving through the funky disco styles of the ”70s and ”80s, to the trendy styles of the ”90s, Ken has been a worldwide pop culture favorite for every era and for several generations.

    The resemblance is uncanny.

    He’ll be opposite Margot Robbie‘s Barbie, which…like…just give these casting directors all of the possible awards now and save us all a little time.

    Now, this project has been in the works for A WHILE, with plans dating all the way back to 2014. Originally, Sex and the City writer Jenny Bicks was attached to the script, and then Diablo Cody took over and Amy Schumer was cast in the lead role.


    Then Schumer left the project and Anne Hathaway stepped in…THEN Cody exited!

    ANYWAY, you already KNOW the internet had all kinds of feelings about this announcement:

    And, of course, there were plenty of jokes:

    So, uh, there ya have it! I guess we’re just going to have to wait until more information is released about the movie to see if life in plastic is, in fact, fantastic!


    I was legally obligated to make an Aqua “Barbie Girl” joke. I don’t make the law, I just obey it.
