Mouse boy! Between that denim shirt and those gawky front teeth, 12-year-old Ryan Gosling, “Canada’s only official Mousketeer,” just shoved the fact it’s Ryan Reynolds‘ birthday clean out of our brains. Hope you had a great day up until right now, Rey! “I hit the roof. It was so funny,” Gosling told CTV’s Canada AM about his being cast in Disney’s The Mickey Mouse Club in that adorably thick Canadian accent. Aside from the squee-worthy snippets of him playing the drums and dancing a spastic elbow-centric dance, Ryan definitely handles himself like a champ: cracking jokes about Florida, explaining what a tutor is and hoping Michael Jordan and Michael Jackson will stop by the show for a cameo. “That’s basically what the show’s aboot,” Baby Gosling smiles. Aboooot! Ryan Reynolds, who? Thank god Blake Lively didn’t see this clip a few weeks ago. She would have hopped on a plane…or a time machine.
The Mickey Mouse Club
Justin Timberlake appeared on Ellen yesterday and dropped a bomb that will send fan fiction authors into overdrive. Apparently he and fellow mega-star Ryan Gosling used to be roommates! But before you let your fantasies wander, it’s probably important to note that this was when they were mere tweens, or “pre-hotties.” Little Ryan came to live with Justin when they were cast mates on The Mickey Mouse Club in the early ’90s. “His mother had to keep her job in Canada the second year that we were on the television show,” Justin explained, “and my mom was his guardian for like six months.” That’s how the bond between the two Mousketeers went deeper than most. “We were probably a little closer that the rest of the kids that were on the show just because we had to share a bathroom.”
