8. Gosling Was a Little Methodology

All through the movie, Gosling truly lined his child blues and wore brown contact lenses as a result of James Garner, the celebrated actor who performed the older Noah, had brown eyes. Whereas the youthful Noah was very concerned with continuity, Garner, who handed away only one month after the movie’s launch in July 2004, actually did not care. In response to Cassavetes, Gosling approached the older actor about accents as nicely…resulting in a hilariously awkward dialog. 

“[Ryan] says, ‘I used to be fascinated with accents. There’s all types of South Carolina accents—one’s extra rural’ and this and that. [Garner] goes, ‘I do not do accents, child. They’re silly,'” Cassavetes mentioned, “And [Ryan] goes, ‘OK. What about eye coloration? I’ve blue eyes. You could have brown eyes.’ He says, ‘Everybody is aware of Jim Garner’s obtained brown eyes. Do what you need, child.’ [Ryan] says, ‘OK, I suppose I am going to put on contacts. What about hair?’ And he says, ‘Do no matter you need, child. Good to fulfill you. So long.’ Ryan checked out me and mentioned, ‘Shut up, do not even say a phrase.’ In order that’s simply an instance of two extraordinarily several types of performing kinds. Each are wildly profitable.”

One other instance of Gosling’s technique performing going a little bit too far was his suggestion that they burn down Noah’s home as a metaphor for his emotions. “He’d come to me and say, ‘Why cannot I burn the home down?'” Cassavetes revealed, “I might say, ‘As a result of I do not even know what meaning.’ And he’d say, ‘Cleaning my hearth!'” Gosling’s thought did not make the ultimate lower, and the beautiful home remains to be standing in Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina.
