Ryan Gosling Is Joining Clint Eastwood, Madonna, and Mel Gibson in a Very Special Club

Ryan Gosling, noted thespian, cheekbones, and meme, can soon add "bat-poop-crazy director" to his list of titles. How To Catch A Monster, the RyGoose's upcoming directorial debut, will star Christina Hendricks as a single mother who, along with her teenage son, must navigate a nightmarish underwater city to save her family from almost certain spookiness. It sounds like a weird, ambitious project, and we hope Goose makes the switch from actor to director with valor. To wish him luck, lets recap some of our favorite actors-turned-directors and their crazy/ambitious projects.
