Ryan Gosling is a hero after stopping a New York City street fight over the weekend.
The 31-year-old good Samaritan, dressed in a striped blue and white tank, shorts and blue baseball cap, was crossing a street in the East Village neighborhood of New York when he came upon a group of men fighting.
The whole ordeal was captured on video, thanks to some squealing bystanders.
In the video, one man is seen getting ready to break a canvas over the other's, smack in the middle of a road where cars were passing by.
