Mark Ruffalo has enlisted Andy Serkis, the master of physicality and wearing ping pong balls, to help flesh out the motion capture aspects of his performance in The Avengers 2. Ruffalo recently tweeted the announcement with the assurance that the Hulk will be even better this time around.

It makes sense that Ruffalo and Marvel would want to lean on a heavyweight of the motion capture world as their films move more and more in this direction. It also makes sense seeing as Mark Ruffalo doesn’t seem to know how things work. Thank goodness he’s getting the help he needs. Now if he could bring in a coach to help him to SPEAK UP, RUFFALO! I shouldn’t need a listening cone to enjoy your films.

On a sidenote, it seems like a waste of a perfectly good Andy Serkis to have him around all that motion-capture equipment and not get a performance from him. Could he be playing Thanos?

When The Avengers opened this summer, fans were hungry to see more from the scene-stealing Hulk. Producer Kevin Feige was quick to dismiss those requests by noting Marvel had already made two Hulk films within the last decade that nobody bothered to see.

But now, plans might be changing. According to Feige, there may be a third Hulk standalone film for audiences to ignore, but it won’t happen any time soon.

“Do I think Hulk can carry a movie and be as entertaining as he was inAvengers? I do believe that. I do believe he absolutely could. We certainly are not even going to attempt that until Avengers 2,” he told MTV. “So there’s a lot of time to think about it.”

But Marvel wants to double and triple check that you guys will go see this movie and enjoy it. Because it takes a lot to make a film like this. You’ve gotta rent all kinds of equipment and blow things up and print posters and it’s just a lot. So can we all promise just to go see these Hulk pictures from now on?

So that’s how the super friends all met! We can thank a bald black dude in an eyepatch.

In case you were wondering exactly how the characters from The Avengers were all assembled so as not to look like a superhero version of the Miami Heat, here’s your answer. Nick Fury (Samuel L. Jackson) assembled a team of elite superheroes (Is there any other kind?) to tackle the type of costumed ne’er-do-wells that could only populate a Marvel universe.

While I’m sure the origin story of The Avengers is somewhat carefully crafted, it’s pretty hard to get past seeing Captain America next to Thor next to Iron Man. It looks like a parody of itself, but that probably won’t stop it from being fun.

One of those makes sense.

The post Ruffalo And Seyfried In Talks To Appear In ‘Now You See Me’ appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Mark Ruffalo strikes me as a little too timid to put on much of a magic show, but now that will be for audiences to decide as both he and Amanda Seyfried are in talks to star in Now You See Me, a heist film focusing on magicians, excuse me, illusionists, who somehow pull off bank jobs during their performances. The pair would join Jesse Eisenberg and Melanie Laurent who have already signed on the project, to be directed by Clash of the Titans director Louis Letterier.

While the first sentence works of this article works nicely as an opener, Ruffalo is actually in talks to play an FBI agent on the trail of the illusionists (wayyyyyyy more logical), and Seyfried would play the mastermind behind all the illusions and contraptions (somewhat less logical).

I can only assume Eisenberg will play some sort of ventriloquist dummy come to life.

So it begins. With Comic-Con getting in full swing, we’re starting to get first looks at a number of blockbuster media, be it posters, trailers, clips, and stills. Well, kicking off the festivities is this teaser poster from The Avengers. Marvel isn’t showing any clips from the film at this years festivities, but that doesn’t mean they’re above stealing the thunder from projects.

So what do you think? Should the X-Men be suing for likeness rights here?

The Avengers, which is a glorious, glorious amalgam of Marvel superheroes, hits theaters on May 4 of next year. It will star Jeremy Renner, Mark Ruffalo, Clark Gregg, Chris Evans, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Chris Hemsworth. Evildoers best watch their asses. I’ve had Robert Downey Jr. mad at me and it’s NOT pleasant.

More Avengers news as the week and weekend progress, I’m sure.

Ruffalo To Buck ‘Everyman’ Image By Playing Bipolar Nutjob http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ruffalo-to-buck-%e2%80%98everyman%e2%80%99-image-by-playing-bipolar-nutjob/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/ruffalo-to-buck-%e2%80%98everyman%e2%80%99-image-by-playing-bipolar-nutjob/#comments Thu, 16 Jun 2011 20:20:35 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=216514 To be fair, it’s hard to take “crazy” seriously when you’re that soft-spoken.

Mark Ruffalo apparently wants to show the world his range, so he’s bucking the “likeable everyman” image in order to demonstrate that he can play dark as well.

Not sure if I can ever buy Ruffalo as anything other than a dude in a flannel shirt that I want to grab a beer with, but if anything can change that perception, it’s the character he will be playing in the J.J. Abrams-produced Infinity Polar Bear. As a bipolar depressive, Ruffalo will lose his wife (played by Zoe Saldana), child, and job.

In case the subject matter sounds a little, I dunno, “sad” for your tastes, there is an X factor here: Megan Ellison. The bisexual billionaire financier behind The Master, True Grit, and The Wettest County in the West found this film to be goodly enough for her efforts. Granted she won’t be on screen of anything, but it’s nice to know that you’re somehow connected to a bisexual heiress with really good taste in movies.

So if you’re not going to do it for Ruffalo, do it for Megan Ellison. It’s not like she needs the money, but she sounds damn cool.

Mark Ruffalo And Tim Robbins Fall Victim To Sex Addiction http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-ruffalo-and-tim-robbins-fall-victim-to-sex-addiction-in-thanks-for-sharing/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mark-ruffalo-and-tim-robbins-fall-victim-to-sex-addiction-in-thanks-for-sharing/#comments Thu, 12 May 2011 17:23:15 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=211805 Tim Robbins and Mark Ruffalo are men of temptation. But what tempts them? The flesh, apparently.

The post Mark Ruffalo And Tim Robbins Fall Victim To Sex Addiction appeared first on Screen Junkies.

It’s just like a Hollywood power player to achieve a modicum of success, then fall into the seedy world of sex addiction.

After receiving an Oscar nod for Best Original Screenplay for The Kids Are All Right, Stuart Blumberg has decided to make the leap to directing, taking with him Kids star Mark Ruffalo. Thanks for Sharing, a comedy about recovering sex addicts in NYC, will see Blumberg serve as writer-director for the first time in his career, which thus far has only had him serving as writer and producer.

Thanks for Sharing has also cast Tim Robbins in at unknown role, and will see Blumberg’s buddy Edward Norton serve as executive producer after Norton directed and starred in Keeping the Faith, based on Blumberg’s screenplay.

Both Robbins and Ruffalo seem to be good fits for Blumberg’s “comedy with heart”-type stories. While visualizing Mark Ruffalo as a sex addict is just sort of depressing, I’m pretty sure I would pay $14 just to hear Tim Robbins sit in front of the camera and discuss disgusting liaisons in graphic details, though it would help if he was portraying the ponytailed douchebag from High Fidelity. (THR)

The post Mark Ruffalo Wants More Hookers appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Actor/director/grinner Mark Ruffalo loves the ladies. And if that extends to a little paid strange, who’s gonna call him on it? At least that might be the rationale for wanting a lead role in the upcoming Scott Rudin-produced “erotic drama” entitled Red Light Winter. Here’s the plot synopsis, but it’ll cost you, man:

“[T]two thirty-something New Yorkers who go to Amsterdam to rekindle their friendship and get away from the serious dramas in their lives (break-ups and illnesses), but a run-in with a Red Light district prostitute, alters their lives forever.”

Sounds like a pretty intriguing premise, so it’s no wonder that Ruffalo is interested in the part:

“Yes. I want to do it. They’re still putting that movie together, it’s based on a play, I think it was nominated for a Tony a couple of years ago, on Broadway.”

Well, there you have it. So will it be too long before you’re reading about Mark Ruffalo getting confirmed for Red Light Winter? That’s up to him – if he can pay the price. Either way, there’ll definitely be more pimp jokes! (The Playlist)

Mark Ruffalo made his directorial debut with the film Sympathy for Delicious, the story of a paralyzed homeless man who discovers the power of healing hands. So he becomes a rock star. The film opens April 29, and as a respectful closer to Ruffalo’s interview for Delicious, he addressed how he’s preparing to play Bruce Banner in The Avengers.

“We have to get the script,” Ruffalo said. “We’ve been working on the script which has been fun. I’ve lost 15 pounds. They don’t want me all ripped up but they want me to be lean and mean. Trying to get the psychology of somebody who knows at any moment they could literally tear the roof off of wherever they are. Trying to bring his, I don’t know, something real to that and totally fantastic. Like I said, I’ve been working with Joss Whedon on the script with the rest of the cast and we start rehearsals soon. Hopefully we’ll have the mother of all comic book movies for you soon.”

He’ll be the third Hulk in 10 years. Don’t think that doesn’t give Ruffalo pause. “Yeah, man, are you kidding me? I’ve got some big shoes to fill. I kind of look at it as my generation’s Hamlet. We’re all going to get a shot at it.”

Ruffalo said he begins shooting The Avengers the first week in May.

The title Sympathy For Delicious made me think Mark Ruffalo‘s directorial debut was a Food Network pilot or a terrible blog written by a fat, 45-year-old woman. It’s neither of those things, in fact.

Ruffalo helms this movie about a DJ who gets paralyzed. Okay. Then the DJ suddenly develops the power to heal people, but not himself. Uhm… okay? And did I mention the movie’s called Sympathy For Delicious? It’s hard to get over the plot and name to see the great cast in this trailer, which includes Orlando Bloom (as a character named “The Stain,” ho boy), Laura Linney, Juliette Lewis and some guy named Mark Ruffalo. Who’d he have to blow to get a lead role?

Written by and starring Christopher Thornton as DJ Delicious (repeat “blow” joke here, too – thank you), Sympathy For Delicious premiered at Sundance in January.

After getting within spitting distance of an Academy Award for his turn in The Kids Are All Right, Mark Ruffalo has decided to pull out the big guns to ensure he is not denied again: He’s playing a jazz musician in a biopic.

Low Down will feature Ruffalo as jazz pianist Joe Albany, a strung-out musician in Los Angeles during the 60′s and 70′s. The story will be told from the point of view of his 11 year-old daughter, who will watch him achieve legend status playing with the likes of Charlie Parker and Miles Davis, only to see him struggle with heroin addiction in later years.

Filming is expected to start at year’s end with Ruffalo himself as a producer. The film will be helmed by Jeff Preiss, who has only worked in commercials until now.

C’mon, Mark. If you really wanna seal that Oscar deal, you need Arnofsky or higher in that director’s chair. Oh well. It still sounds pretty great. (Variety)

You might have already read a little about the casting of the Andrew Dominik‘s puh-puh-puh poker movie Cogan’s Trade. You may have also thought to yourself that the cast, which comprises Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Javier Bardem, Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Mark Ruffalo, and others, while solid, was lacking a bit of vague weirdness. If so, you’ll be happy to hear that the reigning king of vague weirdness Ray Liotta is the latest actor to sign on to the movie:

“Liotta will play Mark ‘Markie’ Trattman, the unfortunate hustler who runs the game in a motel room and finds things only going downhill from there.”

Between Henry Hill and Tony Soprano, this is shaping up to be a new gangster classic. Maybe they can get some Vanilla Ice on the soundtrack! (via The Hollywood Reporter)

The post Mark Ruffalo Is Bruce Banner, But Maybe Not The Hulk appeared first on Screen Junkies.

]]>
If Twitter and actors no one has ever heard of before are to be believed, then Mark Ruffalo may not end up being the first superhero actor to do his own motion capture work. Ruffalo is replacing Edward Norton who was replacing Eric Bana in playing the ill-tempered man with a greenish hue for the superhero ensemble film The Avengers, directed by Joss Whedon. He was also slated to do all the work in those spandex suits with the adorable ping-pong balls on them, until someone else recently stepped forward saying they are under consideration to do the ping-pong ball-y thing.

And that someone else is Brandon Molale. He recently tweeted (picked up by Collider) that he had auditioned to do motion capture work as the Hulk, which is curious, but mostly because I would like to see what kind of audition that is. Does the actor just run around the room smashing things? Because I could do that. So could Mark Ruffalo for that matter. Sure, he plays unflappably cool characters, but look at those eyes. Deep down, he’s a smasher.

What does this mean for theatergoers? Virtually nothing. It would be nice to know that one actor was portraying both iterations of the character, but I don’t foresee anyone leaning over to their date during a Hulk rampage and mumbling, “This is bullshit. That’s not Ruffalo.” My advice is to forget everything you just read and enjoy the movie.
