What with True Grit nominated at the Oscars and Cowboys And Aliens due out this summer, it seems like America, as Garth Algar might say, is ready to raise and rope some broncos. If handsome gentleman actor Ryan Gosling stars in The Lone Ranger as rumors suggest, we are ready to ride off into the sunset at least through 2014, which is when the film set to be released. Reportedly Gosling is in talks to portray the masked hero along side Johnny Depp as Tonto. We will overlook Depp’s apparent lack of Native American ancestry, as we will be too distracted by Ryan’s cowboy boots to care. Well, no, we won’t, but please still give us spurs. Please!
The only possible hurdle between us and Ryan in a ten-gallon hat is his upcoming role in the sci-fi action flick Logan’s Run, which is set to shoot this fall. Cowboy crime fighter or futuristic hero: either one is fine with us, as long as we know which one to awkwardly gush about if we ever somehow meet Gosling in person. You don’t think the fact that we just quoted Garth is going to blow our chances, do you? Do you?!?! That’s it; we’re tying ourselves to these train tracks.
