The two actors star in 'Blade Runner 2049' together

Harrison Ford appeared to forget Ryan Gosling‘s name as the pair took part in a recent interview.

Ford explained how he had gotten involved in the film, explaining that he suggested Gosling would be a good fit for the role of Officer K. “I thought it was awesome,” he said. “I thought it was great and, as I read it, I read about the character that… Ryan. Ryan?”

“Ryan,” Gosling confirmed again. “Ryan Gosling,” replied Ford. “Did you say Brosling?” asked his co-star to much laughter in the studio.
