Do you remember the insufferable, overly tanned Ryan Gosling from The Big Short? If you haven't seen the movie, he's a greedy trader and bursts out lines such as: "I'm jacked to the tits!" when he senses that money is on its way. Well, it looks like Gosling is bringing back some of that punch-me-in-the-face vibe with his new role in the upcoming The Nice Guys, although with a slightly less confident attitude.
The Nice Guys follows Holland March (Gosling), a low-level private investigator in '70s Los Angeles, who joins the grumpier and tougher Jackson Healy (Russell Crowe) in the epic search for a missing girl as well as uncovering evidence related to a porn star's suicide.
Watch The Trailer For 'The Nice Guys'
You can already tell from the trailer that March and Healy are not the most well-matched team.
So what better promo could there be than taking Gosling and Crowe's characters' conflicting characters in the movie and transcribing it into real life?
Gosling And Crowe Do Couples Therapy
Behold, the most hilariously terrible couple there ever was on celebrity planet: Hyperactive, chatty Ryan Gosling meets ultra-grumpy, exasperated Russell Crowe for a couples therapy session with a dumbfounded psychoanalyst. Watch the video above, or read on for a breakdown of what a Gosling-Crowe couple looks like.
Firstly, there's something on Crowe's face that seems to indicate that his "Zen Master" T-shirt is lying.
Part of the problem seems to be the insane amount of Gosling-themed merch that has been invading his life. (If you're even remotely a fan of Gosling, you'll know he's been printed on pretty much everything.)
To make matters worse, the therapist admits she owns most of the merch.
The other part of the problem could stem from the fact that Gosling himself is as overwhelming as the number of goodies that bear his likeness. Crowe, meanwhile, looks like someone with a bad hangover. Gosling overdose, I suppose.
"I think that Russell has a deep well of unaddressed anger," says Gosling.
But he, too, can flip out.
"I'm not even a good person, I don’t even fucking compost, man!"
Therapist advice: Steer clear, Ryan. And he steers. Literally.
We'd watch a whole movie about Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe's couples therapy sessions (team Crowling!), but until that gets made, The Nice Guys is out May 20.
Are you more of a Ryan Gosling or a Russell Crowe fan?
