Is Ryan Gosling the Next George Clooney?

OK, so you've probably noticed by now that Ryan Gosling has been in a lot of movies recently. You've also probably noticed that he's quite possibly one of the dreamiest men in Hollywood today (yes, we just said "dreamy.") But is the Canadian-born actor just a few movies and modelesque girlfriends away from becoming the George Clooney of his generation? We're pretty convinced.

From "Blue Valentine" to "Crazy Stupid Love," then "Drive" to "Ides of March," Ryan Gosling has a growing list of A-list movies to add to his acting repertoire. Be it a romantic drama, comedy, action thriller or politically charged flick, Gosling aims to prove he has range -- and that he's in Hollywood to stay.

Heck, even Rolling Stone magazine is impressed by the actor. The magazine's senior movie reviewer, Peter Travers, says Gosling is "arguably even better" than George Clooney in their new movie together, "Ides of March." Talk about a compliment.

So, he's got the acting down pat. But what about the charm? Oh, Ryan's got a fair share of that too. Always playful and adorably modest in interviews, you can tell that Gosling doesn't think much of himself -- which is probably why so many of us do.

But enough gushing. We're clearly already convinced of Gosling's "it" factor. But what about you? Do you think Ryan Gosling is the next George Clooney?

    I certainly hope not because I don't care for George Clooney! I do like Ryan Gosling and I believe that he will make his own mark on Hollywood and the glamour girls.

    People are taking this too literally. In an acting sense, where Clooney was the hottest thing, best actor and sexiest man alive, I do believe Ryan Gosling is the one to try to beat. Clooney is still a wonderful actor and incredibly sexy, but Gosling is part of this next generation of wonderful and sexy actor...the best of the best. Someday another young actor will be "the next Ryan Gosling".

    Clooney and Gosling are out. Gerard Butler is the most watchable male in a long time. I gave up movies a long time ago but "Machine Gun Preacher" just might tempt me back to the theater. Gerard Butler has grace and humility and is very easy on the eye. What a terrific human being.

    Absolutely not. Probably, Gosling is better dramatic actor than Clooney, but he have yet to show if he can write and direct a movie with Clooney´s quality. Moreover, Clooney has got something that a few actors have: the charisma of the Great Cary Gant, a special mixture of good-looking, style, sense of humor and an indefinable attractive, the "It" of the Hollywood Golden Age. Sorry, Ryan, I admire your work. but...

    I decided to go with "Undecided". Peter (below) has already said Hollywood does not have "offices to fill". I agree. I love Ryan Gosling. I think he is talented, charming, very good looking and has a long and successful career ahead of him.

    I also love George Clooney. He is also talented, charming and very good looking. He has already had a very successful career and I believe he has much more to do in Hollywood before his days of acting are over.

    I just don't believe it's fair to compare the two ~ or ANY two actors this way. Each person has something new to bring to the table. We should enjoy each actor for who he/she is and for what they have to offer us in the name of entertainment.

    Ryan Gosling is a great actor and he is unique! He should not be compared to anybody else! George Clooney is a talent, but it is not fair to compare him to anybody else! Each man should be judged on the totality of his own work and not anybody else's.

    No, there is only one George Clooney. I like Ryan Gosling and he is a great actor and should never try to fill someone else shoes. In other words, be yourself. There is certainly no comparison.
