THEN & NOW

James Dean and Ryan Gosling

Reminisce - - Spotlight - BY MARY-LIZ SHAW IL­LUS­TRA­TION by MICHAEL WITTE

James Dean’s charged, caged-an­i­mal per­for­mance in East of Eden (1955), his first lead­ing role, sig­naled the birth of an in­tox­i­cat­ing new star. But his death at age 24 in a car ac­ci­dent that Septem­ber, be­fore the re­lease of Rebel With­out a Cause (1955) and Gi­ant (1956), left fans to won­der what Dean might have achieved. Ryan Gosling may of­fer a clue. With Dean-like looks and at­ti­tude, Gosling has been prov­ing his act­ing chops for more than 20 years in ev­ery­thing from thrillers to mu­si­cals.
