One of his best-remembered films remains the taut 2011 thriller Drive 

He played an unnamed stunt driver who is cool behind the wheel but monosyllabic in conversation. 

In First Man, he portrayed the astronaut Neil Armstrong as prickly and standoffish,

His newest lead role, in Netflix’s action blockbuster The Gray Man, 

Once again, Ryan Gosling is playing a man with no name, this time an assassin who goes by “Sierra Six” 

The Gray Man, based on a best-selling 2009 novel and directed by the Russo brothers, arrives on Netflix

A series of set pieces and pithy jokes  that’s devoid of personality.

Personality is what truly helps Gosling pop on screen.
