Ryan Gosling’s Transformation From Childhood To Barbie
After spending his tween years building up his various talents, Gosling scored a pretty respectable first on-screen gig when he was cast on the “The All-New Mickey Mouse Club” in 1993, the second revival of the classic kid-centric musical variety show. His stint on the show was brief, but it still helped to put him on the map and served as a springboard to what was soon to be a very busy television career.
It’s fun to note that Gosling wasn’t the only future superstar on the show during that time. Among his co-stars were Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, JC Chasez, and Justin Timberlake, all of whom would become major pop stars within just a few years of their time as Mouseketeers. But while everyone else gravitated towards music, the direction that Gosling’s path also seemed to be taking him in up to that point, he instead decided to revisit his dreams of becoming an actor after his time on the series came to an end. Though that era of “The Mickey Mouse Club” remains sadly missing from the Disney+ library, it’s not at all difficult to find various clips online of Gosling performing on the show.
