There once was a time when their loyal female fan-bases bickered over who was really the "Sexiest Man Alive". Now, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper face off in Derek Cianfrance's (Blue Valentine) latest crime drama The Place Beyond the Pines. Gosling stars as Luke, a motorcycle stunt driver who decides to use his skill set in order to rob a bank and provide for his family. As Luke continues to push his boundaries, he also becomes the focal point of an ambitious police officer named Avery Cross (played by Cooper) who intends on bringing him to justice.
Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey and Alan Arkin round out an oddball cast in the upcoming comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone. Over the years, lifelong magician Burt Wonderstone (played by Carell) and his partner Anton Lovecraft (played by Buscemi) have let their routine lose its flavor. Instead, up-and-comer Steve Gray (played by Carrey) has taken everyone by storm, staking his claim as the world's latest and greatest magician. Broke and desperate to restore his glory, Wonderstone turns to his childhood mentor Rance Hanson (played by Alan Arkin) to see the error of his ways and return the passion and zest to his routine.
