Ryan Gosling is one heck of an actor—and one of the most watchable young movie stars around. Not bad for a Canadian guy who got his start on the Mickey Mouse Club (with Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake and Christina Aguilera, of course). Since then he's gone from playing Hercules on television and small roles in films to breaking out in The Notebook (swoon!) and holding his own in movies with George Clooney, Steve Carrell, Emma Stone, Michelle Williams and more. Check out his career (and heck, some shirtless pics, too) in our gallery.
