Ryan Gosling Returns To Saturday Night Live In New Promo

Ryan Gosling is coming back with a fierceness, and he wants everyone to know it. 

In a new promo for the season 43 premiere of Saturday Night Live, host Gosling gives a hilariously dramatic, noir-like voiceover reminiscent of his performance in Drive. The iconic New York cityscape pans across the screen as we hear Gosling remembering the thrill of his first time hosting the long-running sketch comedy series—but says audiences only got to see a small part of him. This time around, when he hosts the series' upcoming September 30 episode, he promises to give people something "they will never, ever forget."

"All my life, I knew I could host SNL," Gosling says in the promo. "And when I hosted, it was magical. But you only got part of me last time. This time, I'm going to give the world my soul."

Immediately after he delivers those brooding lines, the clip cuts to Gosling getting stuck in a precarious situation with the security at 30 Rockefeller Plaza. 

Check it out in the video above.

Gosling first hosted the show in December 2015, proving to audiences around the world that he is far more than good looks and dramatic acting skills. As the very first host of the Emmy Award-winning comedy institution's 43rd season, Gosling will undoubtedly deliver a ton of laughs and maybe even offer a few teases about his newest movie Blade Runner 2049, set for release on October 6. The R-rated sequel comes hails from Arrival director Denis Villeneuve, who works from a script penned by Blade Runner's Hampton Fancher and Murder on the Orient Express' Michael Green. Gosling stars as the new blade runner, Officer K, who discovers a secret that has the potential to launch what little is left of society into all-out chaos. This unearthing leads him on a journey to find Harrison Ford's Rick Deckard, the former LAPD blade runner who has been missing for over three decades. 

Joining Gosling for the premiere episode is musical guest Jay-Z and the recently announced new cast members Heidi Gardner, Luke Null, and Chris Redd.

Wonder Woman actress Gal Gadot will host the show's October 7 episode with musical guest Sam Smith. The Big Sick and Silicon Valley star Kumail Nanjiani is set to host on October 14 with with pop rock musician P!nk backing him up. Saturday Night Live will air all episodes live coast-to-coast at 11:30 p.m. Eastern, 10:30 p.m. Central, 9:30 p.m. Mountain, and 8:30 p.m. Pacific throughout the entirety of season 43. 

Until we see Gosling give Saturday Night Live viewers (and the world) his soul on September 30, discover the untold truth of the series.
