During an early scene in 'Drive,' Ryan Gosling's unnamed stunt-car driver has to wear a mask while participating in a dangerous vehicular rollover on-set. Later, Gosling dons the same mask in an effort to hide his identity during a climatic scene where he confronts one of the movie's villains. Unfortunately for me, the mask that Gosling wears looks exactly like my longtime friend Kirk. Eerily similar, as you can see above. So much so, in fact, that it took me out of the film during the mask portions. Needless to say, I had to confront my friend Kirk about why he looks so similar to Gosling's mask from 'Drive.' This was our email conversation.
Hey, Kirk, have you seen 'Drive'?
No. I hear 'Drive' is good. What do you think?
It's good. Have you seen any pictures of the mask that Ryan Gosling wears in the movie?
What are you talking about?
Here, I attached a picture. What's your first reaction?
So do you think it looks like someone that we both know?
