Gosling’s Gangster Squad

6:52 am in Movies & TV by Jason Baskey

Your boyfriend, Ryan Gosling is losing the soft, rom-com attitude and getting tough in the new flick, Gangster Squad. Sean Penn stars as Mickey Cohen, the ruthless Brooklyn-born mob boss trying to expand his territory into Los Angeles. With the LAPD powerless to stop the mob, Josh Brolin and Gosling form a band of outsider cops that operate outside of the law. And blow stuff up real good. Also, Jay-Z does the soundtrack to yet another period piece. At this rate, our kids are going to think Jigga was a rapper in the 1950s.

Gangster Squad hits theatres January 11th, 2013.
