Some Ryan Gosling ‘Fans’ Thought This Tax Accountant Was Ryan Gosling

Since the spring, Ryan Gosling has been gracing the lovely people of Detroit with his presence as he shoots his star-studded directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster.

What the lovely people of Detroit didn’t know is that they would fall victim to a prank organized by a local radio station and a Gosling lookalike who is actually a tax accountant in real life.

With the addition of a pair sunglasses and a hoodie, tax accountant Doug suddenly becomes the Canadian heartthrob — at least, that’s what some people in Detroit thought.

Wonder if Doug used any Ryan Gosling lookalike tips from this guy.
