Ryan Gosling has been pictured for the first time as the beloved Mattel doll Ken, as he gears up to star alongside Margot Robbie in the live-action Barbie movie.

On Wednesday, the Oscar-nominated actor was seen showing off his tanned and chiseled chest in a cut-off denim jacket and white bleached hair for the role. 

Warner Bros. released the promotional still via a tweet simply with the film title and a release date of July 21, 2023, that was previously revealed when they shared the first image of Margot, 31, as Barbie in April.

Ryan, 41, is known for his serious acting work in acclaimed films such as Drive, Blade Runner 2049, Blue Valentine, and Half Nelson.

Sporting a cheesy grin and white underwear branded with his character’s name, the role of Ken certainly appears to be somewhat of a left turn for the thespian.  

Little Women and Ladybird filmmaker Greta Gerwig is directing the project, and wrote the script for the film with her longtime partner Noah Baumbach.

The film features an all-star cast including Will Ferrell, Issa Rae, Simu Liu, Kate McKinnon, America Ferrera, Michael Cera, and Alexandra Shipp. 

A synopsis on IMDB of the upcoming film reads: ‘A doll living in “Barbieland” is expelled for not being perfect enough and sets off on an adventure in the real world. A Live-action feature film based on the popular line of Barbie toys.’

Margot has been long slated to play the world’s most iconic fashion doll in a live-action movie and back in December 2020, she vowed to give audiences ‘something totally different.’

Opting for something ‘a little left center,’ when it comes to her portrayal of the Mattel doll, the project will be produced by her LuckyChap Entertainment Company whose motto is, ‘If it’s not a f**k, yes, it’s a no.’

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about the project Robbie said: ‘Something like Barbie where the IP, the name itself, people immediately have an idea of, “Oh Margot is playing Barbie, I know what that is.”

‘But our goal is to be like, “Whatever you’re thinking, we’re going to give you something totally different – the thing you didn’t know you wanted.”‘ 

 The live-action Barbie flick is set for release on July 21, 2023.
