Who's the ultimate Ryan of Hollywood: Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds?
Gosling rose to prominence playing disturbed young men in films like "Murder by Numbers" and "The United States of Leland." But the critically acclaimed and commercially successful film adaptation of "The Notebook" turned him into one of Hollywood's young leading men.
Gosling scored his first Oscar nomination for Best Actor for "Half Nelson" in 2007. After plenty of blockbusters and praised performances, he finally scored another nomination for Best Actor for "La La Land" in 2017.
Oh, and let's forget how popular he is for that "hey girl" meme.
Reynolds has always been a funnyman. He got his big break on the sitcom "Two Guys and a Girl" in 1998. But his performance as the titular character in "Van Wilder" was his breakout movie role. He continued to star in comedies like "The Change-Up" and "The Proposal" over the years.
The box office flop "Green Lantern" almost ruined his career. But Reynolds got a second chance at comic book redemption by playing the titular character in "Deadpool," after a rough start as the ‘Merc with a Mouth’ in the dreadful "X-Men Origins: Wolverine.” The highly praised blockbuster revitalized his career and spawned a sequel in 2018.
