Ryan Gosling

E! NEWS -- Gosling jetted into Las Vegas for CinemaCon to promote Blade Runner 2049, the much anticipated sequel to Ford's 1982 classic Blade Runner. Ford reprises his iconic role of Rick Deckard while Gosling plays a mysterious LAPD officer.

E! News asked Gosling what was more nerve-racking—making a musical or shooting his first scene with Ford?

"I think the latter," Gosling said. "[Ford] is just the best as a guy, as an actor in every way. He's such a part of my childhood and he was so great how he showed up to set, just rolled up his sleeves and got to work. He was the best partner, collaborator you could have.

"They created such a legacy with this film," he continued. "Time has proven its specialness. So obviously we wanted to do right by him and by the original."

And then there was the time Ford accidentally punched Gosling in the face during a fight scene. "Or I leaned into it," Gosling cracked. "There's a strong chance that that's what happened. You don't want to mess with Harrison Ford."

Gosling, 36, was just two years old when the original Blade Runner was released. He first saw the movie when he was about 13.

"Being on the [Blade Runner 2049] set was surreal," he said. "It's so baked into my subconscious as a kid that in some way it had this strange feeling of coming home. But to be walking around in that universe, a universe that had such an influence over everything I had seen growing up was really surreal."

Blade Runner 2049 will be in theaters on Oct. 6.

Gosling, dressed casually in a hoodie and jeans, took to the stage at CinemaCon to introduce new footage from the movie, which included a snippet of Jared Leto as a villain and Robin Wright as another police officer.

CinemaCon is an annual convention for movie theater owners that kicked off last night and runs through Thursday.

Micky Dolenz

MICKY'S MISSING ALBUM --- Last October, Micky Dolenz did one standout show at B. B. King’s. It was recorded for both DVD and CD release and all these months later … where is it? Dolenz saddles up next month for another tour with The Monkees (Michael Nesmith and Peter Tork). Wouldn't it be a fabulous addition to the tour merchandise?

NO SOUP FOR YOU --- Gotham-pr man David Salidor turned up last Monday for the start of this year’s New Music Seminar confab in NYC; held this year at the esteemed New Yorker hotel. Salidor helped start the event, in 1984, with Scott Anderson, Danny Heaps, Marc Josephson, the late-Joel Webber, and Tom Silverman, who continues to run it.

Guess what? No registration info for Salidor. The funny thing is, that according to several witnesses on-scene, Salidor was engaged in conversation with one Ella Silverman, Tom’s daughter … who wasn't even born when the Seminar-series kicked off in '84!

We spoke to Salidor earlier today, who said he’s still waiting for an email response from Silverman, who he emailed when the incident occurred. “I liked to think it was just a glitch; as Tom said everything was set. It’s a shame as I knew several people had flown in expecting to meet with me there. A wasted opportunity all around? Definitely!”

GUESS WHO, DON'T SUE --- There’s this terrific band from Boston, who several years ago put out just one terrific album; and, it was self-distributed no less and created a ton of attention. After going through a series of pr-people, they finally decided on one … from L. A. Too bad, as this band is an East Coast-one, and as such should have had an East Coast-firm handle their outreach. Funnily enough, the new album is produced by a New Yorker, who just did a phenomenal job with a comeback album from a true English-rocker. Not that we're trumpeting NY-pr firms over any other ones; heck, when John Lennon & Yoko Ono released their come album Double Fantasy years ago … they hired a firm from Boston to coordinate all the pr. Go figure.

ROY TRAKIN--- East-Coast born, but on the West Coast for the last decade or two, writer-extraordinaire Roy Trakin has just exited the music industry’s Hits! Magazine, and is embarking on a series of new projects; including a forthcoming on Billy Idol. I've know Roy for close to 25 years and he has always been one of the more interesting people on the music scene. Whether it was working for Polygram Records or writing for the much-missed Soho Weekly News; Roy always had his pulse right where it should be. A raconteur of major proportions, he'll still contribute the odd column or so and his musings on such recent events as Michal Musto leaving The Village Voice; the new Bowie album or Stones-tour; or, the current season of AMC’s Mad Men …required reading. Much luck Roy!

STUCK IN LOVE --- I love movie soundtrack albums; always have. Last year’s accompanying album to Ryan Gosling’s Drive movie was a treat in itself. Brilliant stuff for sure. This year’s pick so far, has just got to be the music from the movie Stuck In Love, featuring Greg Kinnear, Jennifer Conelly, Lily Collins and Nat Wolf. The brilliantly creative score, composed and performed by Mike Mogis and Nathaniel Walcott is exceptional and really adds an additional dimension to the movie. We especially like “I Won’t Love You Any Less” and “Between The Bars.” Exquisite set. Thanks to Beth Krakower at Varese Sarabande for sending this gem.

WINTERBLE ON A ROLL --- How about XM’s Brett Winterble; interviewing in rapid succession Buzz Aldrin (second man on the moon); Richard Belzer; LeAnn Rimes; Orianthi; Nancy Jo Sales (The Bling Ring) and, Paul McCartney’s guitar-man Brian Ray. Go Brett!

Ryan Gosling

One of this spring's most highly anticipated movie releases, The Place Beyond the Pines, starring Academy Award nominees Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper, and Eva Mendes, will have an original object from the production auctioned off online to benefit Variety - The Children's Charity of Southern California. The auction item is a red leather motorcycle jacket, as seen on Mr. Gosling in the film as part of his portrayal of high-wire motorcycle stunt performer Luke.

The auction will be hosted by Profiles in History at, starting Friday, March 29th, which is also the day that Focus Features releases the Derek Cianfrance-directed movie in exclusive engagements in New York City, at Landmark Theatres' Sunshine Cinema and AMC Theatres' Lincoln Square, and Los Angeles, at Landmark Theatres' The Landmark and the ArcLight Cinemas in Hollywood. The ArcLight Cinemas is currently displaying the actual jacket on-site, until Friday, April 5th. The auction will end Monday, April 8th.

The lining from the auction item has been removed because of wear from extensive location filming of sequences in which Luke rides on his motorcycle.

Ryan Gosling

I've never been a huge fan of Steve Carell ; never really got into the antics on The Office in terms of breaking the fourth wall , but in this, his new movie Crazy, Stupid, Love, with an all-star cast firing on all cylinders, he nails a performance that will leave you breathless. A rather brilliant script with some novel twists and turns and an all-star performance by Ryan Gosling, Crazy, Stupid, Love is just crazy good fun! Emily (Julianne Moore) announces to long-time husband Cal (Steve Carell) she wants a divorce … over dinner. Cal jumps out of the car on the way home and tells his family that he'll be moving out. He begins to hang out nightly at a local bar, which he confesses he's been by a million times, but never stopped in. He's observed at this bar by Jacob (Ryan Gosling), who appears to have more than his share of available women on a nightly basis. He calls Cal over and offers to turn him into something of a chick-magnet. Reluctantly, Cal agrees and so begins the task of turning Cal around. Funnily enough, the first step is getting Cal to buy his correct suit size! Turns out, he's been buying his clothes a size too big for decades … great line! Along the way, Jacob meets reserved-lawyer Hannah (Emma Stone) who thirsts for a wedding proposal from her boss Richard (Josh Groban) … and, who has just by chance met Jacob in the very same bar, with her friend Liz, brilliantly played by Liza Lapira. All these twists and turns come together with a most satisfying hook; it's at once totally unexpected, then comes together perfectly. I won't reveal how it ends, but it is a hopeful one. I also want to call out the young actor who plays their son Robbie (Jonah Bobo) ; he is absolutely terrific. It's also a nice dynamic that the son's relationship with their parents is honest, rather than just funny and a throwaway one. The scenes with him, and there are several, are in many ways the highlights of the movie. It's grand that these scenes are as serious as all the others. Bravo! The script by Dan Fogelman is just brilliant; fast-paced, evocative … and, funny. Its actually one of the best written movies I've seen since Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris. Carrel, Moore, Gosling, Stone ... these are without a doubt their best performances ever with a most charming, in every way, script. Marisa Tomei and Kevin Bacon are here too and deliver some nice flourishes with their roles. Bacon's role is a tad different than his last several efforts; here more comedic than you would think; and, he's great! Even Groban delivers a nice turn, as the rather weasel-y lawyer. The direction by Glenn Ficarra and John Requa is efficient and serviceable to the script in the best way possible. Besides all the comic antics, this is a script and movie to listen too. In many ways, THE movie of the summer. For a most pleasurable time, check this one out. It's at the top of my list so far!

Actor Ryan Gosling has fueled rumors he has split from Rachel McAdams after he attended a premiere with his mother. The star attended the Cinema Society screening of his new thriller, "Fracture," without his "The Notebook" co-star and partner McAdams. A source tells Page Six the couple are "definitely over." The news comes just days after the couple denied they were to marry in a secret ceremony later this year. Another Hollywood breakup !
