Ryan Gosling who? James Marsden makes sexy waves in The Best of Me

James Marsden and Michelle Monaghan play star-crossed lovers in The Best of Me, a sure-to-be-tear-jerker about two high-school sweethearts torn apart by socioeconomic limitations, disapproving parents and a tragic gun accident. After 20 years apart, Dawson (played by the absolutely amazing-looking Marsden) and Amanda (Monaghan) reunite at a funeral in their hometown to find that the proverbial sparks are still there.

As the couple reminisces and canoodles, they discover that the forces that kept them apart in their past are still very much a part of their reunited present.
