At one go, some people must not have recognized Ryan Gosling as the fast-talking, slick hair sporting and over confident banker but when you take a close look, it indeed is the “Gangster Squad” star doing the talking and looking dapper in the suit.
According to Los Angeles Daily News, Gosling is not playing the California money manager because that is Christian Bale’s role, he is not playing the angry hedge fund manager because that is what Steve Carell is playing and neither is he the retired super banker who now looks like a sophisticated hippie because Brad Pitt is killing it with his looks.
Gosling is playing Jared Vennett, a fast-talking Deutsche banker who also happens to be the narrator of the movie. He takes audiences through the movie narrating what is going on especially when not many will know the heavy financial jargon that has been used in the movie. Talking about his role, Gosling said it took him a while to figure out he was the one playing
Gosling said it took him a while to figure out he was the one playing Vennett. Elaborating more on it, he added that when Adam McKay described the movie to him, he said that the movie is socially relevant and it’s an important one.
What really got Gosling to do the movie is when he found out he will have a Jheri curl in the movie. Adapted straight from reporter Michael Lewis’ non-fiction book “The Big Short: Inside the Doomsday Machine,” Adam McKay and Charles Randolph have included loads of financial data in the movie. It can also be seen in the trailer, but somehow Adam has made the movie accessible and understandable for everyone. This won’t be a problem especially since Ryan’s Jared will be taking care of the narration and be guiding viewers through the entire movie.

In other news, Inquisitr added that when Ryan Gosling was asked about what he looks for in a woman, he plainly replied he is with the woman he is supposed to be with. This statement alone should settle down the rumors that have been going on for a while as Ryan seems to have already made a decision who “the one” is.
