Ryan Gosling was the only choice to play Neil Arm­strong

Financial Chronicle - - NONE OF MY BUSINESS -

"First Man" di­rec­tor Damien Chazelle says he had no one but Ryan Gosling in his mind to es­say the role of Neil Arm­strong in the film. The di­rec­tor-ac­tor duo, who re­unites for the moon land­ing film, started dis­cussing the project even be­fore they worked on their first, the Os­car-win­ning “La La Land”, EW re­ported. “Ryan and I started talk­ing about this movie a while ago. Back be­fore we even made ‘La La Land’ to­gether. In my mind, I never re­ally thought of any­one but Ryan in this role,” Chazelle said. But find­ing Janet, Arm­strong's wife, was trick­ier. But af­ter the di­rec­tor heard “The Crown” Claire Foy read from a real in­ter­view Janet had once given, he knew she was per­fect for the part. The film is slated to be re­leased on Oc­to­ber 12.
