First Man tells the story of space pioneer Neil Armstrong, the astronaut who, nearly 50 years ago, became the first human to walk on the moon. Ryan Gosling stars in the biopic, which is based on the book of the same name. To play the part, Gosling said he relied heavily on the biography, but also made a special effort to do plenty of additional research, including reaching out to Armstrong’s family.
