Gosling is a damn good actor, I just don`t like the idea of making from him another Hollywood Cutie - this will spoil him.
already happened.. plus he's not a good actor.. especially judging him from this movie where he said 12 words..
His character was meant to be a Clint Eastwood "Man With No Name" Archtype. He wasn't meant to say much. You we're supposed to feel his actions, which Gosling did perfectly. The Driver looks somewhat harmless, maybe a bit sociopathic, but Gosling portrays his Visceral and Sensitive side expertly
