Mark Wahlberg Replaces Ryan Gosling in 'Bones'

Mark Wahlberg Replaces Ryan Gosling in 'Bones'

Mark Wahlberg has replaced Ryan Gosling in the upcoming movie The Lovely Bones, according to Variety.

And just ONE day before shooting!!! (Filming begins today in Pennsylvania.)

Ryan vacated the role on Friday; Marky Mark stepped in on Sunday after quickly reading the script.

Wahlberg has taken the role of Jack Salmon, the grieving father of a young girl. Rachel Weisz will play his wife. After their daughter is murdered, the girl watches over her family and her killer from heaven.

Gosling gained 20 pounds and grew a beard for the role. “Creative differences” supposedly contributed to his abrupt exit.

Peter Jackson wrote the script with his The Lord of the Rings partners Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens.

Wow, this is major suckage for Ryan. Is there another role that he can take on now with all that massive weight gain????? Crazy!!!

    I’m with some of you others, how is Mark going to grow a beard and gain weight at this point? This sounds wierd.

    What is the title of the book? I don’t think MW is a good actor, something about his acting makes me cringe.

    Ashley Says:

    What a step down! From Ryan Gosling to Mark Wahberg? Seriously? He’s not even half the actor Gosling is. What was going to be an amazing film is now a HUGE disappointment.

    Milan Says:

    I really hope this isn’t true. I just cannot see Mark as Jack. I love Mark and all, but Ryan just seems fit for this role. No offense, but it just seems too heavy for Mark. Blargh!

    ^ Agree 100%, Ashley. Mark Wahlberg is more of an action movie kind of guy, I don’t how well he’ll do emotional drama. Ryan is so good at capturing his emotions.

    I guess Ryan trusts his gut. It’s gotten him this far, so I’m guessing it would be for the best. :(

    WTF?!?!?!?!? why Why WHY??????? I thought Ryan was PERFECT for the role!!!!

    Wtf Says:

    Man! I loved this novel, and was so excited to hear one of my fave actors had signed on to star in it. I could spit fire right now. Whatever it was that made him leave 1 day before filming began must have been pretty serious. :(

    They are filming “lovely bones”? I read that book – good book/story but I never thought it was “film” stuff.

    Anyway i know who the killer is!

    And the Oscar goes to……….Mark Wahlberg for The Lovely Bones

    Von Says:

    I think Ryan only had to gain the weight and beard, to look older, while Mark already looks the age, so there would be no issues on looking older and hence wouldn’t need the weight or beard.

    Seriously….Gosling is an amazing actor…it is a step down.

    I wonder why this happened. Probably creative differences.
