Too much of Ryan Gosling is always a good thing. Gosling takes on a more mainstream comedic (and shirtless) role in Friday's "Crazy, Stupid, Love. " And I'm excited about it. But I'm also looking forward to seeing him in "Drive," out this September. A description of the film from IMDB: "A Hollywood stunt performer [Gosling] who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. " At first read, it sounds like another crappy action movie, perhaps starring Vin Diesel.

In his brief time in movies, 25-year-old Ryan Gosling has already given stunning performances as the Jewish neo-Nazi in The Believer (2002), the teenage thrill-killer in Murder By Numbers (also 2002), and the wrong-side-of-the-tracks romantic in The Notebook (2004). Now he's reached a new personal best in his portrayal of Dan Dunne, a gifted, coke-addicted history teacher and girls' basketball coach in Half Nelson, which opens Friday in Baltimore. Dunne forms a turbulent friendship with one of his middle-school pupils, Drey (Shareeka Epps)

A few truths to be gleaned from Fracture, the new cat-and-mouse thriller starring Anthony Hopkins as a really smart guy who kills his wife and Ryan Gosling as the assistant D.A. charged with bringing him to justice: 1. Hopkins could spend the rest of his career channeling Hannibal Lecter, playing riffs on the criminal who's so much smarter than everyone else, though we hope he won't coast like that. Still, he is so good at the type. Fracture (New Line Cinema) Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ryan Gosling.

Check the most recent entries on actor Ryan Gosling's career dance card: Young heartthrob in a treacly romance that critics loathed and the public loved. Cokehead teacher in one of the cheapest and most depressing indie films of 2006. Cocky district attorney opposite murderous Anthony Hopkins in a police-procedural genre movie opening today. "If anything, I've been painted with this `independent, brooding actor' brush," said Gosling, who was nominated for a best-actor Oscar in January for playing that addicted instructor in Half Nelson.

Lars and the Real Girl is the darndest thing. Starring Ryan Gosling as the romantically challenged Lars, this is a film whose daring and delicate blend of apparent irreconcilables will sweep you off your feet if you're not careful. For what screenwriter Nancy Oliver, director Craig Gillespie and a top-notch cast have done is construct a Frank Capra-style fable, a throwback tribute to the joys of friendship and community, around a sex toy. Taking one of the most salacious items modern culture can provide as their centerpiece, they've created the sweetest, most innocent, most completely enjoyable film around.

When the antihero of Half Nelson, Dan Dunne, collapses against the wall of a teachers' lounge and says "I can't do this any more," actor Ryan Gosling gives the words such vertiginous, heart-breaking spin that "this" means everything, the way it would in a Henry James novel. It means the school system, his own unconventional teaching and basketball coaching, his cocaine habit, his disastrous love life, Brooklyn, New York and America. The blessed irony is that Gosling and his spellbinding young co-star, Shareeka Epps, who plays a junior high pupil and basketball player who tries to save him, fill the film with vitality.

In Stay, the director, Marc Foster, fresh from Finding Neverland, turns Manhattan into a nightmarish dreamscape and his characters into self-destructive ghosts. Ewan McGregor plays a high-powered shrink who doubles as a university psychiatrist. He's happy in his double professional life and in his private life with a once-suicidal painter (Naomi Watts) until he takes over the treatment of a haunted-looking art student (Ryan Gosling) who intends to kill himself on his 21st birthday. Soon, every aspect of the hero's existence funnels into the patient's psychic vortex.

WATCHING HIS MOTION- picture debut reminds 14-year-old Nathan Corbett of how much he's changed since the film was shot a year ago. His facial features are more pronounced. His shiny, braided mane is thicker. His voice is heavier. But his smile -- a personal calling card that wins you over before he even utters a line -- hasn't changed. Coupled with a charismatic camera presence, that impish charm may explain why the Rosedale teen seems to stand out, whether he's playing a class comedian in Half Nelson, a critically acclaimed independent film opening locally Friday, or an effervescent, car-stealing youth in HBO's The Wire, which begins its fourth season tonight.

Leland Fitzgerald is a mixed-up, disturbed kid. That, The United States of Leland makes very clear. Problem is, although the movie thinks it offers insights into what makes him that way, it really doesn't. What it does is offer a standard victimization excuse (broken home, distant dad) combined with heaps of teen angst. Of course, that's the essence of what J.D. Salinger did with Catcher in the Rye, but to compare that classic to this surface treatment is like comparing the Mona Lisa to those cheap knockoffs you can buy on sidewalks outside the Louvre.

"Remakes" and "sequels" may be the key words for summer movies, but "acting" may be the season's redemption. America's performing pool is still so deep that veterans and fledglings alike may wring personal victories out of retreads like Poseidon. This Titanic-esque take on the 1972 disaster film smash The Poseidon Adventure opens next week with a cast that includes stalwart, perpetually underrated Kurt Russell and statuesque, gifted Jacinda Barrett. Producers have wisely continued to sprinkle new personalities into tried-and-true hit franchises: X-Men: The Last Stand, for example, will introduce Ben Foster, who got his big-screen break in Barry Levinson's Liberty Heights, as the white-winged Angel.
