Starring: Ryan Gosling, Emily Blunt, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Winston Duke, Hannah Waddingham, Stephanie Hsu
Action thriller comedy directed by David Leitch and written by Drew Pearce, inspired by the 1980s television series of the same name. The Fall Guy (2024) centers on Colt Seavers (Ryan Gosling), a battle-scarred stuntman, who, having left the business a year earlier to focus on both his physical and mental health, is drafted back into service when the star of a mega-budget studio movie, being directed by his ex, Jody Moreno (Emily Blunt), goes missing. While the film’s ruthless producer, Gail (Hannah Waddingham), maneuvers to keep the disappearance of star Tom Ryder (Aaron Taylor-Johnson) a secret from the studio and the media, Colt performs the film’s most outrageous stunts while trying (with limited success) to charm his way back into Jody’s good graces. But as the mystery around the missing star deepens, Colt finds himself ensnared in a sinister, criminal plot that will push him to the edge of a fall more dangerous than any stunt.
We’ll add the best quotes once the movie is released and we’ve had a chance to watch it, but for now, here’s a small selection.
Jody Moreno: In three, two, one. Action.
Jody Moreno: Anyone but him. I didn’t approve him, you know that. You are literally the last person on earth I want to see. I’d slap the s**t out of you. I really could.
Colt Seavers: And I’m open to that in a safer environment.
Jody Moreno: You’ve been a ghost. No phone call. No text.
Colt Seavers: It’s not like I didn’t want to apologize.
Jody Moreno: You don’t have to explain anything. It was just a fling.
Jody Moreno: So how have you been?
Jody Moreno: [as Colt gives her a thumbs up] God, I hate that thumbs up stunt guy stuff.
Film Crew Member: We’re going to set this man on fire.
Jody Moreno: I’m the director. You’re a stunt guy. We need to keep it super profesh.
Colt Seavers: Profesh is my middle name.
Jody Moreno: You said your middle name was Danger.
Colt Seavers: How did we do boss?
Colt Seavers: [as Jody gives him the finger gun] Really?
Jody Moreno: Yeah.
Colt Seavers: Holster that.
Jody Moreno: It’s holstered. It’s done. Forget. You never saw it.
Gail: Tom Ryder, the biggest action star on the planet is missing. You need to bring him back, or Jody’s movie is dead.
Colt Seavers: Why me?
Gail: You’re a stunt man. Nobody’s going to notice you. That’s your job. No offense.
Colt Seavers: I mean, some taken.
Gail: [to Colt] You find Ryder, save Jody’s film, you get the love of your life back.
Colt Seavers: I’m not the hero. I’m just a double.
Stunt Coordinator: Not today you’re not.
Colt Seavers: Tom, we really need you back on set, pal.
Gail: Dead body on ice?
Colt Seavers: He was so dead, Gail. He was super dead.
Gail: He’s got himself involved with some shady people.
Colt Seavers: I had no choice. I had to do some Jason Bourne s**t. They were trying to kill me, and not in a fun way.
Colt Seavers: [as he tries to jump off the rooftop] You can make it. You can make it! You ain’t making it. It’s too dangerous! Got to be stairs.
Jody Moreno: What happened to your face? You look terrible.
Colt Seavers: You look amazing.
Jody Moreno: You fall down, you get right back up. How far would you go for the one that you love?
Colt Seavers: [to the dog] I’ll buy you a drink when this is over. Engage your core.
Colt Seavers: [as they’re filming the stunt] What are you doing later? Want to go to a beach somewhere?
Jody Moreno: Drink a spicy margarita.
Colt Seavers: Make some bad decisions.
Jody Moreno: Yes!
