According to director Derek Cienfrance, he met Ryan Gosling at his agent’s house in 2007 while working on Valentine (2010). He asked Gosling, “Is there anything in your life that you haven’t done yet but would like to try?” To which Gosling replied that he had always wanted to rob a bank. Cienfrance asked him how he would rob a bank, and Gosling described robbing a motorcycle because he was fast and mobile, and the helmet would help hide his identity. He said that after the robbery, he would have left the motorcycle in the back of the truck so that the police would not find him. Cienfrance told him that he was actually writing a bank robbery script in this way, and he felt that Gosling should play the part.

Bradley Cooper – American actor, producer, director. He played roles in more than 70 films. Derek Cienfrance has stated that he would not have made The Place Beyond the Pines without Bradley Cooper as Cross. He spent 5 hours on the road to Toronto to personally meet with Cooper and convince him to accept the role. Cienfrance said he wrote the part specifically for Cooper, “a guy who flaunts like a hero but feels rotten on the inside.”
