Gosling plays Stephen Meyers, a presidential campaign press spokesman, in this look at politics behind the scenes, directed by George Clooney. Meyers starts off idealistic, then learns more than he wants to know about dirty politics on the campaign trail. Co-starring George Clooney, Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Evan Rachel Wood.
The Ides of March was an opportunity to work with a lot of actors that are really at the top of their game. I want to direct some day. Watching George is really interesting. He’s sort of possessed by the film while he’s making it.
