According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Los Angeles premiere of The Fall Guy was a true celebration of the film’s stunt work. Stuntmen put on a live show on the red carpet, performing daring feats like motorcycle stunts, high falls, and staged fights, setting the stage for the action-packed movie. At the event, Ryan Gosling, who plays a down-and-out stuntman in the film, joked about using The Fall Guy as a “giant campaign” to get stunts recognized at the Oscars, a category currently lacking at the prestigious awards show.

Gosling, who performed some of his own stunts in the movie, including a 12-story fall, took the opportunity to praise the dedication and risks taken by stunt performers.

“I don’t know what to say, how do you say thank you to someone that got set on fire eight times for you, jumped from a helicopter, rolled a car eight times for you — this is just such an example of what they do for us, what they contribute to cinema, what they risk for all of us,” the actor said.

He further acknowledged the often-underappreciated nature of stunt work, calling stunt performers “the hardest-working people in show business.”

Co-star Emily Blunt echoed Gosling’s sentiment, expressing her bafflement at the lack of recognition for stunt performers in the industry.

“I think we’re all really baffled by it because they are the unsung heroes of our industry,” she said. “I don’t know why they live in the shadows; maybe their incredible humility and the fact that they want to maintain the mystique for audiences, to give audiences that sort of sense of wonder that it’s the actor doing it.”

Blunt emphasized the importance of acknowledging the artistry and skill behind stunt work, suggesting that the industry has moved past the need for mystique and should embrace the behind-the-scenes process.
