Ryan Gosling Transforms Into Neil Armstrong on 'First Man' Set -- See the Pic!

Ryan Gosling First Man Buzzcut

The actor goes full buzz cut as he plays the iconic astronaut -- who was the first person to set foot on the moon -- in the upcoming new biopic.

Ryan Gosling is ready for liftoff, buzz cut and all.

The First Man star was spotted on set of the upcoming Neil Armstrong biopic on Wednesday, rocking a markedly shorter hairdo in the style of the iconic astronaut, who became the first human to set foot on the moon in 1969. Armstrong died in 2012.

The film, which reunites Gosling with La La Land director Damien Chazelle, is set to premiere Oct. 12, 2018, and also stars Claire Foy, Jon Bernthal and Corey Stoll, who will portray Buzz Aldrin. 

Gosling was quite a trouper, too. Despite shooting a hot, sunny summer scene, the actual temperature in Atlanta, Georgia, where the movie is being filmed, is 28 degrees! The 37-year-old actor had a bathrobe and a hot water bottle to keep warm between takes.


The movie has been shooting since October, when Gosling was spotted channeling Armstrong -- with longer hair -- while showing off his lasso skills.
