Flashback! Gosling's First Insider Interview!
Seeing footage of Ryan Gosling, circa 1991, this morning got us waxing poetically for his younger days -- and, wouldn't you know it, that's when I stumbled upon the first time we ever interviewed him!
The year was 1998 and a young Gosling was in training for his role on TV's Young Hercules when The Insider caught up with him in the rehearsal room.
And even then, the actor was disarmingly affable about his future in the business. When asked what he thought Hercules could do for his career, the Oscar-nominated actor said, "I don't know what it will do for my career per se. It's just going to be wonderful. Whatever happens career wise, if I never work again, then I never work again."
I think we all know how that turned out.
