Ryan Gosling took a solo stroll in NYC yesterday, enjoying the lovely Spring day and strumming on a three-string guitar. He's back on the East Coast after a short visit to LA earlier in the week. Ryan's been all over the place this month, and soon he'll hop on a flight to the South of France for the Cannes Film Festival. Hollywood's hottest stars including Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, and Angelina Jolie are expected to premiere new projects at the annual cinema extravaganza, and Ryan will promote Drive alongside his costars Christina Hendricks and Carey Mulligan. Ryan, Christina, and Carey shot their racing flick in the California desert last Summer, and it looks like Ryan has lined up a new on-set buddy for the Summer of 2011. Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper are reportedly in talks to star in The Place Beyond the Pines, the latest effort from Blue Valentine director Derek Cianfrance.
