Ryan Gosling Shines in George Clooney's 'Ides of March'


The Ides of March, George Clooney's new movie about a fictional Democrat's attempts to win the Ohio primary in a bid for the presidency, is bleak and cynical, but also a great showcase for the actor and director's talents. But as fantastic as Clooney is here, his co-star Ryan Gosling is arguably even better, and his performance makes a good case for him becoming the next George Clooney. Think Gosling is the next Clooney? If he's not, who is? Let Travers know in the comments below, on Twitter or via e-mail.
