La La Land : Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

Is this true? I read he played the piano parts but does that include the crazy virtuoso parts as well? Is Ryan Gosling that good?

Re: Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

Yes! :D

Re: Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

gosling has a band himself and he knew how to play piano before la la land

Re: Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

This was the first thing I looked up when I got home from the movie today! Ryan did a great job, not that I'm familiar with jazz. But I had also read that Ryan's singing was so-so, I don't agree, he has a good voice. And he and Emma had good chemistry and dancing scenes.

Great chemistry

I agree that his voice was so so, but mainly because Emma's voice was so good she stole the singing scenes. But Ryan Gosling has such a great charisma and the chemistry with her was just amazing. I'm even more astounded with his piano skills. At time it felt I was seiing Michel Camilo's virtuoso hands going crazy.

Re: Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

No, Gosling played just a few parts, when he's at the apartment or testing if the piano is properly tuned.

All the more complicated parts are played by Randy Kerber.

You don't actually hear Ryan Gosling. They just didn't use a hand double. There is no possible way anyone could ever reach that advanced of a level in just 3 months.

Re: Ryan Gosling played all the piano parts?

He's playing, but you're not actually hearing him. He learned to play those pieces over a 3 month period so that he could convincingly mimic it so as to avoid the use of a hand double, but the music was pre-recorded before anything was shot.

So you're seeing him play, but hearing someone else.
