Ryan Gosling And Emily Blunt Honor Fall Guy Stuntman With Guinness World Record

Ryan Gosling And Emily Blunt Honor Fall Guy Stuntman With Guinness World Record: The man who enabled Ryan Gosling and Emily Blunt to make their most recent movie is being honored.

The cast of “Fall Guy” (2024) were present at a special Los Angeles screening of the action comedy on Wednesday. In just a few days following their Oscars tribute to stunt performers, they gave “Fall Guy” stuntman Logan Holladay a Guinness World Record.

His defying of death? For the first time ever, doing eight and a half cannon rolls in a car.

The cannon roll is “a classic stunt dating back to the early days of cinema,” according to a press release from Universal Pictures. It entails “fitting a cannon-like apparatus” under an automobile that “shoots toward the ground” while being driven, causing it to “into a series of rolls.”

In a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Holladay accomplished the feat, unseating previous record-holder Adam Kirley, who had executed seven cannon rolls for the 2006 James Bond movie “Casino Royale.” Holladay remarked on Wednesday that “it was a surreal moment” and that he was “incredibly proud of.”

“We had one car and one shot left after two practice runs and one real take,” he continued in a statement. After hitting eight and a half rolls, I had a strong suspicion that I had broken the record because it seemed like the spinning would never stop.

According to Guinness, the act was “kept under wraps until now” after being filmed in Australia in 2021.

Stuntman Colt Seavers (Gosling) doubles for action star Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) in David Leitch’s film, which is directed by Ryder’s ex-girlfriend (Blunt). Ryder mysteriously disappears, and Seavers goes on a high-stakes rescue expedition.

A big-budget tribute to stunt performers is long needed, according to Gosling and Blunt, who stated in their tributes on Sunday that they have “been such a cubical part of our industry since the beginning of cinema” and are “the unsung heroes” of Hollywood.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gosling stated on Wednesday, “There’s this sort of accepted dynamic where they come on set, they do all the cool stuff, they risk everything, and then they disappear into the shadows and we all pretend as if they were never there.”

Gosling seemed earnest in his frustration about this “unspoken understanding” and cheekily remarked that it “ends today.” He continued, saying that since beginning his career on the “Young Hercules” series, he’s “basically had a stunt double my whole life.”

Leitch, who was a stuntman in the past, supposedly wanted his new movie to be “a love letter” to the industry. Gosling is still in awe of Holladay’s work, even though he overcame some difficult times himself and told People, “They dropped me 12 stories off a building.”

More like this:

He claimed on Wednesday, “He’s strapping me into a car for a stunt he’s about to do.” “And he continues, setting a world record with eight and a half cannon rolls, after which he pulls me out of the car and gives me a pat on the back for the stunt he just performed.”

“In any other movie, you wouldn’t know that, but in this movie, you do,” Gosling went on.
