Ryan Gosling Had The Chance To Join The Backstreet Boys? Here’s What Really Happened

The Backstreet Young boys appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon today ahead of their approaching DNA World Trip. And, the kid band exposed the truth behind the report that Oscar-nominated star Ryan Gosling refused the chance to be part of the group when the band was formed in the early 90 s.

All 5 members of the Backstreet Boys– AJ McLean, 42, Nick Carter, 40, Brian Littrell, 44, Howie Dorough, 46, and Kevin Richardson, 48– appeared on the late night talk show, and when Fallon inquired about the Gosling report, McLean seized the day to inform the real story.

McLean discussed that the group was formed in Orlando, Florida. And, the apartment building they resided in was the very same location Gosling lived when he starred on the Mickey Mouse Club along with other future stars like Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, and Kerri Russell.

“Long story short, we used to live in the same apartment complex when he was doing The Mickey Mouse Club – him, Justin, Christina, Britney, all of them,” McLean stated, including that “the group had started” by that point.

McLean stated that they were playing basketball with Gosling “almost every other day,” and he kept informing the young La La Land star “how big this was gonna be.”

“And he’s like, “Dude, New Kids already did it, this is never gonna work, just shoot the ball,”’ exposed McLean.

Obviously, everybody understands by now that Gosling was extremely incorrect. By 1997, the Backstreet Boys would end up being big pop stars with their debut single Quit Playing Games (With My Heart), which caused other hits like Larger Than Life, As Long As You Love Me, Everyone (Backstreet’s Back), and the best kid band tune of perpetuity: I Desired It That Method.

The Backstreet Young boys have actually offered more than 100 million albums throughout their 25- year profession, and McLean fasted to explain simply how incorrect Gosling had to do with their future success.

“Cut to he was wrong and it did work,” stated McLean, with Carter mentioning, “It worked out for him too.”

In a different look on Watch What Occurs Live with Andy Cohen, McLean stated that the Ryan Gosling report was “blown out of proportion” and journalism “misconstrued it and it became a thing.” McLean made it clear that Gosling “never auditioned” to be a member of the Backstreet Boys.


The Backstreet Kids’ DNA World Trip kicks off February 20 th in Mexico City.
