Should Ryan Gosling Have Joined the Backstreet Boys?

It seems like every day, a new story breaks about one of Ryan Gosling's hidden talents: knitting, ballet dancing, life saving, the list goes on. You name it, he's good at it.

It's also pretty common knowledge that Gosling was a member of The Mickey Mouse Club in his youth, and that he sings in the indie band Dead Man's Bones when he's not acting, but it was revealed this week that the heartthrob was almost a founding member of the Backstreet Boys.

Apparently, Gosling and Backstreet Boy A.J. McLean lived in the same apartment building in the early days of the boy band, and McLean asked Gosling to join. In a press interview for "Gangster Squad," Gosling explained that he declined because he thought they were a rip-off of New Kids on the Block, and he never thought they'd make it big.

McLean confirmed Gosling's claim to TMZ, and said that later when the Backstreet Boys became huge, Ryan called A.J., presumably to see if he could jump onboard, but McLean never returned his call. Ouch.

It all turned out alright for Ryan Gosling in the end though, as we all can see, but what do you think? Should Ryan Gosling have joined the Backstreet Boys when he had the chance?

Ryan Gosling has revealed in a recent interview for his new 1940s shoot-em-up film "Gangster Squad", that he missed his opportunity to become a member of none other than the Backstreet Boys!

    That would have been a very bad idea if Famous Actor Ryan Gosling have joined the Backstreet Boys because that would have been a bad idea,that would have been weird,the Backstreet Boys are already big,famous and much more talented than and without Ryan and Ryan is better than his Acting Skill than his singing skill!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the choice. I know who Ryan Gosling is. He was in Fracture. The Backstreet Boys sound like a boy band with an urban flavour. I don't like boy bands on principle because I prefer people like Ritchie Blackmore, sullen but good on the guitar.

    I don't think that it would have worked out. I hate questions like this but I think that the current incarnation of the Backstreet Boys Kevin, Howie, Brian, A.J., and Nick is great.

    Ryan Gosling made a movie ("Murder By Numbers") with Sandra Bullock in 2002. He did not marry her. He let her get away when he could have saved her from Jesse James. He therefore does not deserve any professional awards and he does not belong in the Backstreet Boys. He belongs in "The Backward Boys", the group that lets all the pretty girls get away! LOL !

    Ryan is wayy too good for them. Even though, i admit i was a bit obsessed with them when i was younger, their time has fade and Ryan Gosling is extremely successful...........And he's sexy, which has nothing to do with it but i thought i would just state that fact.

    Yes? Who cares? He was a Disney Clubhouse kid, maybe he should've been in NSync with Timberlake? He wasn't. Move on.

    The Backstreet Boys are so washed up. He's going much better than them at this point in time.
