Cornwall ON – Happy Birthday Ryan Gosling. Ryan grew up here in Cornwall Ontario. He’s the star of many movies after coming home from a stint in New Zealand.
I learn something every day….
Gosling was a cast member on the hit show The Mickey Mouse Club alongside fellow stars; Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, J.C. Chasez, andKeri Russell. He was part of the last set of new Mouseketeers to be admitted into the show before it ended its run. He sang, danced, and acted on the show.
He starred in the Canadian television show Breaker High which aired on YTV in Canada and UPN in the United States from 1997 to 1998.
On December 25, 2008 Gosling’s band Dead Man’s Bones released a music video and free download for their song “In The Room Where You Sleep,” and on April 4, 2009, the band released another music video for their song “Name In Stone” on MySpace and YouTube. The self-titled debut album from the band, featuring members of the Silverlake Conservatory of Music‘s children’s choir, was released on October 6, 2009 through ANTI- records. Since then in 2010, they have released two other music videos for tracks; “Dead Hearts” and “Pa Pa Power” Gosling and Zach Shields also successfully toured around North America for fall/Halloween 2009 with a local choir and talent show in every city similarly to the LA group, Silverlake Conservatory Children’s Choir, which they recorded with on the album.
And we share an interest in getting young people more involved politically.
In 2010, Ryan Gosling signed on to narrate Phillip Montgomery’s REGENERATION, a new documentary that explores the widespread cynicism in today’s youth and young adults, and the influences that perpetuate our culture’s apathetic view towards social and political causes. Gosling also produced the documentary along with Anonymous Content’s Matt DeRoss and Engine 7 Films’ Joel Goulder and Jeremy Goulder. Montgomery said,“It is an honor to work with one of the most talented and intelligent artists of our generation. As a socially conscious individual himself, Ryan brings an inspired freshness to the films core message of hope and action. There is truly no better voice to guide us through this film.”
Happy Birthday Ryan Gosling! Cornwall is very proud of you!
