Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone on "Gangster Squad"

Acclaimed actor Ryan Gosling (“Drive,” “Ides of March,” “Crazy, Stupid, Love”) stars as an honest cop who has a personal vendetta against the mob, in Warner Bros.' epic crime thriller “Gangster Squad.”

Set in Los Angeles, 1949, “Gangster Squad” revolves around ruthless Brooklyn-born mob king Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) who runs the show in this town, reaping the ill-gotten gains from the drugs, the guns, the prostitutes and—if he has his way—every wire bet placed west of Chicago. And he does it all with the protection of not only his own paid goons, but also the police and the politicians who are under his control. It’s enough to intimidate even the bravest, street-hardened cop…except, perhaps, LAPD outsider by Sgt. John O’Mara (Josh Brolin).
But Jerry Wooters has another motive for keeping a close eye on Cohen: Grace Faraday (Stone), the mobster’s current piece of arm candy. Despite the obvious risk, Wooters finds her irresistible, and Grace is not immune to his charms, either. 


Ryan Gosling has been honored for his work in a broad range of roles in both acclaimed independent features and major motion pictures. In 2012, he earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, for his role opposite Steve Carell and Emma Stone in “Crazy, Stupid, Love.” and another for Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture – Drama, for his work in George Clooney’s “Ides of March.”
             That same year, Gosling was also nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for Best Male Lead and a Critics Choice Award for Best Actor for his work in the action drama “Drive,” directed by Nicolas Winding Refn. In 2010, he starred opposite Michelle Williams in the romantic drama “Blue Valentine,” for which he earned another Golden Globe nomination, and his third Critics Choice Award nomination for Best Actor. He previously received Golden Globe, Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® and Critics Choice Award nominations for his work in the title role of the indie film “Lars and the Real Girl.” He earned an Academy Award® nomination and won an Independent Spirit Award, both for Best Actor, for his performance in the 2006 release “Half Nelson.”



Emma Stone is one of Hollywood’s most sought-out young actresses, having garnered both critical and audience acclaim for her starring role in “The Help,” for which Stone also received a Screen Actors Guild (SAG) Award® and the National Board of Review Award as part of the ensemble cast in the adaptation of Kathryn Stockett’s New York Times best-selling novel. Stone previously earned rave reviews as Olive in Will Gluck’s comedy “Easy A,” and her performance in The Scarlet Letter update also earned her a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actress in a Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy, as well as an MTV Movie Award for Best Comedic Performance and a nomination for the BAFTA Rising Star Award.
             She most recently took on the coveted role of Gwen Stacy in Marc Webb’s “The Amazing Spider-Man,” opposite Andrew Garfield in the title role, and will soon be at work on the sequel, due in 2014. She co-starred in director Gluck’s “Friends with Benefits,” alongside Justin Timberlake and Mila Kunis, and with Ryan Gosling and Steve Carell in the comedy “Crazy, Stupid, Love.”

             Opening across the Philippines on Jan. 30, “Gangster Squad” is distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company
