If you’re heading to the cinema to see The Fall Guy when it lands this week, then you’ll see a Guinness World Record

Based loosely on the TV series of the same name from the 1980s, The Fall Guy stars Hollywood icon Ryan Gosling as Colt Seavers, an ageing stuntman. 

Fresh from an almost career-ending accident, Colt has to track down missing movie star Tom Ryder (played by Aaron Taylor-Johnson), solve a conspiracy, and try to win back the love of his life (played by Blunt).

While filming in Sydney, Australia, stunt driver Logan Holladay rolled a car eight-and-a-half times. The previous record was a (still pretty impressive) seven times, achieved by Adam Kirley for the 007 movie.

The record itself seems very fitting, as the film has previously been labelled by it's main stars as 'a giant campaign to get stunts and Oscar'.

Speaking to virginradio.co.uk and other press at the Special Screening of The Fall Guy in London yesterday (22nd April), Emily admitted she wanted to make sure that stunt people, who are vital to making action-packed flicks, got their dues within the new project, and told us it felt “gratifying” to play a small part in getting them recognition. 

Meanwhile, co-star Gosling told us about how many stunts he actually did in the film: “I tried not to do any of them! But I did a couple.”

He explained: “They dropped me off a 12-storey building, and then dragged me across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. But the very cool stuff was done by our stunt team. You know, like the records were broken for most car rolls in a film. [Stunt double] Ben Jenkins, every-time he was set on fire… all of the cool parkour stuff is him. It took a big team to make one Fall Guy."

The Fall Guy lands in cinemas on 2nd May.

Ryan Gosling and Mikey Day’s Beavis and Butt-Head Make Surprise Appearances at ‘The Fall Guy’ Premiere

The actors first debuted their live-action depictions of the animated characters in a viral 'Saturday Night Live' sketch earlier this month.

It appears Ryan Gosling and Mikey Day reprised their iconic Beavis and Butt-Head characters sooner than fans were likely expecting.

The actor was joined by the Saturday Night Live star on Tuesday night at the Los Angeles premiere of Gosling’s latest movie, The Fall Guy.

After the Barbie star initially walked the red carpet in a mint-green Gucci suit with his co-star Emily Blunt, Gosling later returned — only this time looking a bit different.

Gosling and Day posed for photos as their live-action depictions of Beavis and Butt-Head, the main characters from the hit ’90s adult animated series. Gosling was seen with a blonde wig and blue shirt with words that read, “Death Rock,” and Day had on a gray shirt with the word, “Skull.”

The duo first debuted the characters during a sketch on SNL on April 13, when the La La Land actor was hosting the sketch comedy show for the third time. The skit instantly became a hit among fans, garnering more than 13 million views on YouTube alone.

In the original sketch, SNL castmember Heidi Gardner played a news anchor interviewing a professor (Kenan Thompson) on the dangers of artificial intelligence. But Thompson’s character had trouble focusing on their conversation because he kept getting distracted by two audience members, Dean (Gosling) and Jeff (Day), who had a striking resemblance to the ’90s cartoon characters. However, Jeff and Dean insisted they didn’t know they looked similar to Beavis and Butt-Head, respectively.

During the skit, when Gardner first turned around to address Gosling, and then Day, she completely broke character, making for an even more memorable moment. The Nice Guys actor also struggled to hold his laughter throughout the sketch.
