Today Show: Ryan Gosling Dirty Dances With Al Roker (WATCH)

On set at the Today Show this morning outside of 30 Rock in New York, Ryan Gosling demonstrated why he is worthy of the "gorgeous hunk of man candy" title Anne Curry was quick to call him by lifting Al Roker in the air -- Dirty Dancing-style. Appearing with Crazy, Sexy, Love co-star Emma Stone, the actor recreated the infamous air move (which makes an appearance in the flick) with the anchorman, but not after two false starts.

"You really got to push up!" Gosling said, before successfully hoisting an ecstatic Roker above his shoulders.

"Nobody puts Ryan in the corner!" Roker yelled, once safely back on ground.
