in Fiction by

Can Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling only make movies together from now on, please? From their scene-stealing chemistry in Crazy, Stupid, Love to the ‘40s glamour of Gangster Squad, these two are just better together.

Apparently, the network is even going to skip the present-day Alzheimer’s storyline – which, let’s face it, most of us fast-forward through anyway – and keep the TV show a historical…
