There’s a lot of buzz surrounding Greta Gerwig’s upcoming Barbie movie, and she just broke the internet by sharing the first look at Ryan Gosling. The Oscar-nominated actor transformed into a real-life Ken doll and he’s so plastic, it’s fantastic!

Gosling’s striking new look set the internet ablaze, and he’s everything we expected him to be – and more! From a perfect six pack and blonde hair to a stonewashed denim jacket with cut-off sleeves, Gosling truly understood the assignment and he looks like a Ken doll brought to life.

Barbie is one of the movies on Gosling’s busy slate following a brief acting hiatus. He’s set to make a comeback in The Gray Man this July, in addition to being attached to Wolfman, The Actor, and Project Hail Mary.

Gosling joins Margot Robbie, who’s set to play the titular role in this highly-anticipated film. The first image of the Australian actress as the iconic Mattel doll was released back in April, and it shows her posing in Barbie’s signature pink convertible.

In addition to the two leads, this project will also star Will Ferrell, Simu Liu, America Ferrera, Kate McKinnon, Michael Cera, and Issa Rae. The production kicked off in England this March, while the premiere date is set for July 21, 2023.
