Ryan Gosling Confirms He Will Star in ‘Blade Runner 2′

Man Crush Monday
Hey Ryan Gosling, we love your style.

We may not know what role he’s playing yet, but Ryan Gosling just confirmed he’s starring in Blade Runner 2.

It’s been rumoured for some time, but now we have information straight from the source. While promoting his latest flick, The Big Short, the actor finally admitted to Collider that he’s involved with the sci-fi sequel. However, he wasn’t prepared to say anymore.

There’s a chip in me and if I say anything more I’ll explode if I say anything else.

He did say that he’s excited to work with director Denis Villeneuve and cinematographer Roger Deakins, and that their involvement definitely helped persuade him to join the untitled project. We’re just happy that after taking a few years off acting to direct Lost River and be a dad, our beloved Canadian is finally returning to us.

The only other certainty is that original Blade Runner star Harrison Ford will also be starring in the sequel, reprising the role of Rick Deckard. But no details regarding the plot have been revealed yet. Watch Gosling’s interview below.
