While there will never be another Ryan Gosling (in our hearts and our minds), with his recent announcement that he's taking an imminent break from acting — and this is the time we ask you to refrain from hurling items in our direction — it's time to find the next adorable, hilarious, and genuine guy to step up and take his place.

Lastly, the new Ryan Gosling has to be really really ridiculously good-looking. But that last part? Well, that's just a given.
