The irony of it is, had he been in The Avengers his schedule might not've permitted him to take on a film like Birdman, for which he's looking like a front-runner to win a supporting actor Oscar. What's even more ironic is the fact that his biggest competition in that category thus far is Mark Ruffalo (Foxcatcher), who replaced Norton as Banner in the Avengers.

I've been saying it for years only to be proven correct time and time again, so I guess I'll just keep on saying it. There are two people in Hollywood who will likely never take on a cbm: Ryan Gosling and Joaquin Phoenix. Gosling himself has consistently maintained as much in numerous interviews, having turned down several attempts by the studios to court him already, and Phoenix probably came as close as he ever will to doing a cbm, only to withdraw in the eleventh hour.

It's just not their thing. Go back over the last three or four years and read about every time Gosling and Phoenix were being considered for a cbm only to turn it down. I guess the studios think if they reach for the brass ring long enough, then maybe one day it'll reach back. I, on the other hand, wouldn't count on it.

Well, I think it's safe to assume I'll be adding Showtime to my cable package come 2016.
