Emma Stone Will Probably Be in ‘Gangster Squad’

If Emma Stone’s career were any hotter, we’d all be begging her to stop taking roles, as our skin crackled and popped. The ubiquitous, SNL-obsessed actress has Crazy, Stupid, Love and The Help out in the next three weeks, and just wrapped up a successful weekend at Comic-Con, hawking her Spider-Man movie. Now, reports indicate she is this close to joining the all-star but Bryan Cranston-less cast of the L.A. mobster movie Gangster Squad.

Stone would play the female lead in story set in 1940s L.A., where a cop, played by Ryan Gosling, hunts down real-life mobster Mickey Cohen, played by Sean Penn. (Josh Brolin, Anthony Mackie, Giovanni Ribisi and Michael Pena round out the cast.) Stone would play a “sharp-tongued siren,” and would find herself at the apex of a love triangle between Gosling and Penn. The role would also reunite her with her Zombieland director Ruben Fleischer, and her Today show partner, Ryan Gosling. Our takeaway from all this is that Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling may or may not start dating soon.
