Life in plastic look fantastic and then some on Ryan Gosling. Warner Bros. has unveiled a first look at the actor in the live-action Barbie movie, in which he plays the Ken to Margot Robbie's titular doll. The photo reveals a very tan Gosling dressed in matching denim vest and jeans, with his very own brand of Calvin Klein-esque undies.
Barbie's cast also includes Kingsley Ben-Adir, Michael Cera, Scott Evans, Emerald Fennell, Will Ferrell, America Ferrera, Ariana Greenblatt, Simu Liu, Emma Mackey, Kate McKinnon, Hari Nef, Issa Rae and Alexandra Shipp, some of whom are reportedly playing alternate Barbies and Kens, among other Malibu Dreamhouse residents.
Three-time Oscar nominee Greta Gerwig (Lady Bird and Little Women) is directing from a script she co-wrote with her partner, Noah Baumbach, who is himself a three-time Oscar nominee (The Squid and the Whale and Marriage Story).

Barbie will park her pink convertible in theaters on July 21, 2023.
