And while David Leitch has extensive experience in the genre, Ryan Gosling is just getting his feet wet. The La La Land actor has primarily been in a number of dramas. Perhaps Blade Runner 2049 and Drive are the closest he’s gotten to being in a movie with considerable action. At least, until now. This could be a turn for Ryan Gosling. Right now, he’s working with the Russo Brothers on what will likely be an action-packed espionage thriller in Netflix’s The Gray Man, that also co-stars Chris Evans. In that, Ryan Gosling will play the lead, Court Gentry, a former CIA operative turned assassin.
