He was spotted doing some heavy lifting last Friday around the Masonic Temple area of Detroit.

D'Mongo's owner Larry Mongo, who has a small part in "How To Catch A Monster" and has become pals with Gosling, was coy with fans on Facebook about whether the actor was expected to stop by his downtown Detroit nightclub this weekend.

"P.S. We have received numerous questions about Ryan Gosling coming out on Saturdays. Larry said this has not been confirmed, and while a random visit occurs either on a Friday or Saturday from Our Man, we are never in the "KNOW," read a post on Cafe D'Mongo's Facebook.
