Unfortunately for all of us Ryan Gosling fans, the Baby Goose won't be starring in his directorial debut, "How to Catch a Monster," which he also wrote. But he's giving us the next best thing: Iain De Caestecker, a handsome young actor set to play the movie's male lead.

The 20-something Scottish star has been cast as Christina Hendricks's character's 18-year-old son, Bones, whom Deadline describes as "a loner with an active imagination."

Best known in the UK for his roles in the BBC series "The Fades" and "Young James Herriot," De Caestecker is set to make a name for himself stateside as a regular on the forthcoming Marvel/Joss Whedon series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."

And now he has something even better than a plum gig on ABC: the Ryan Gosling seal of approval.

Billed as a "modern-day fairy tale" combining "elements of fantasy, horror, and suspense," "How to Catch a Monster" is slated to arrive in theaters sometime next year. In the meantime, you can ogle a blood-drenched Gosling in the Nicolas Winding Refn crime thriller "Only God Forgives," out July 19.
