Academy Award–nominated actor Mark Ruffalo is one of Hollywood’s most sought-after actors and directors, easily moving between stage and screen. He is perhaps best known as Bruce Banner/The Hulk in Marvel’s The Avengers. He was honored with a Best Supporting Actor Award by the New York Film Critics and earned nominations for an Academy Award, SAG Award, BAFTA Award, and Indie Spirit Award for his performance in The Kids Are All Right. In 2011, Ruffalo made his directorial debut with Sympathy for Delicious, which won the Special Jury Prize for dramatic film at the Sundance Film Festival. Ruffalo will next be seen in Thanks for Sharing this September and has recently wrapped production on several films including The Normal Heart, Infinitely Polar Bear, Foxcatcher, and Can a Song Save Your Life?
