Ryan Gosling is going from the city of stars to the actual stars (LOL, you're welcome). The actor is set to star in Universal's upcoming biopic First Man, playing none other than Neil Armstrong.
First Man is scheduled for an October 2018 release and will be helmed by La La Land director Damien Chazelle—so we know there's the potential for legitimate movie magic. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will chronicle NASA's mission to put a man on the moon, specifically focusing on Armstrong's experiences from 1961 until 1969, when he famously took a giant leap for mankind.
We have no doubt that Gosling has the acting chops to play an iconic American hero, but it doesn't hurt that there's a definitely resemblance between him and Armstrong:
