We've seen him blonde and inked in the set photos from "The Place Beyond The Pines" but now comes the first official look at Ryan Gosling in the film. And yes, he does look as badass on a bike as he does behind the wheel.

We've seen him blonde and inked in the set photos from "The Place Beyond The Pines" but now comes the first official look at Ryan Gosling in the film. And yes, he does look as badass on a bike as he does behind the wheel.

Marking the reteam with his "Blue Valentine" helmer Derek Cianfrance, the picture boasts a pretty great cast -- Bradley Cooper, Rose Byrne (who replaced Greta Gerwig), Eva Mendes, Ben Mendelsohn, Ray Liotta, Dane DeHaan, Max Martini and Emory Cohen -- in a story that centers on Luke (Gosling), a motorcycle stunt rider who turns to robbing banks to support his son, but winds up crossing paths with a police officer-turned-politician (Cooper), kicking off a simmering generational feud that will also include their sons (Cohen and DeHaan) who are mixed up in a clash of their own. The director himself told us that people have told him that it's an epic film in "The Deer Hunter" sort of way, but we'll wait to see how that bears out.

The film is in post-production so there's no release date yet, but we're betting Cianfrance and Gosling will party on the Croisette again next year. Check out the official synopsis and Gosling in all his skull and crossbones pants-wearing glory below. [Sierra Affinity via RopeOfSilicon]

Luke (Gosling) is a professional motorcycle rider who turns to bank robberies to support his newborn son, but when he crosses paths with a rookie police officer (Cooper) their violent confrontation spirals into a tense generational fued. THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES is a rich dramatic thriller that traces the intersecting lives of fathers and sons, cops and robbers, heroes and villain.
