Watch Comedian Pete Holmes Explain Being ‘Gay for Gosling’

After a long, agonizing wait to hear back about his talk-show pilot (which he hilariously recounted for us here), comedian Pete Holmes now has the long, agonizing wait until the show actually premieres in the fall after Conan. During which he can agonize over who his guests will be? Specifically, he's probably wondering, Would Ryan Gosling ever come on? That's because, as Holmes describes in his hour special, Nice Try: The Devil, which premieres on May 12 on Comedy Central, he's "gay for Gosling." In the clip below, he explains exactly what that means and what he learned from watching Drive. (Hint: Don't talk.)
