Albert Brooks fuels Ryan Gosling’s ‘Drive,’ readies new book

HollywoodNews.com: Having taken a break from both the big and small screen in recent years, comedic-actor Albert Brooks is getting in the seat of Ryan Gosling’s indie film “Drive.”

Brooks will play Bernie Rose, a New York mobster who moves to L.A. “Drive,” as previously reported, centers on a stunt driver played by Gosling who changes professions to become a getaway heist driver. The film also stars Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston.

The last time Brooks played a baddie was in Steve Soderbergh’s Elmore Leonard adaptation “Out of Sight” in 1998 The actor, who was nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar for “Broadcast News” was last seen on screen in his directorial title “Looking for Comedy in the Muslim World” back in 2005. Brooks also played the father-in-law to Mary-Louise Parker’s Nancy Botwin in the 2008 season of “Weeds.”

Recently, Brooks finished a science fiction novel “2030: The Real Story of What Happens to America” which is hitting stores next May. He spent the last two years working on the book, per Deadline. The storyline takes place in a future where the new middle age is 70, and older people are the new ruling middle class, towering over the twenty-year olds.

Brooks hasn’t decided whether or not he will direct the feature adaptation of “2030.”
