MANHATTAN— Actor Ryan Gosling played the role of real-life superhero while helping break up a street fight in Astor Place.
The Academy Award-nominated star is purportedly seen in a video intervening in a street scuffle involving two men.
The video, posted on YouTube this weekend, shows Gosling approaching the men and grabbing of their arms in an effort to stop the dust-up.
"You know who that is, right?" a person says off camera as Gosling, dressed in a striped tank-top, steps in.
"That’s the guy from the movies. 'The Notebook.'"
His publicist did not immediately return a request for comment regarding the incident.
