Former Disney Star Ryan GoslingBy Joseph Dionisio
as Young Hercules.
It was called "The All New Mickey Mouse Club," but a better title might have been Tomorrowland.
During its 1989-96 run, the Disney Channel variety series delivered a major peek into Hollywood's future. Few could predict that its stable of kids — including Ryan Gosling, Justin Timberlake, Christina Aguilera, Keri Russell and Britney Spears — would morph into Oscar-caliber actors, Grammy-winning singers and celebrity heavyweights.
What made an innocuous kids show such a magic kingdom for talent? Who better to ask than the casting director who discovered them all?

Georges Auguste Escoffier
(28 October 1846 – 12 February 1935) was a French chef, restaurateur and culinary writer who popularized and updated traditional French cooking methods. He is a near-legendary figure among chefs and gourmets, and was one of the most important leaders in the development of modern French cuisine. Much of Escoffier's technique was based on that of Antoine Carême, one of the codifiers of French Haute cuisine, but Escoffier's achievement was to simplify and modernize Carême's elaborate and ornate style.
Alongside the recipes he recorded and invented, another of Escoffier's contributions to cooking was to elevate it to the status of a respected profession, and to introduce discipline and sobriety where before there had been disorder and drunkenness.He organized his kitchens by the brigade system, with each section run by a chef de partie. He also replaced the practice of service à la française (serving all dishes at once) with service à la russe (serving each dish in the order printed on the menu).
