You know the difference between a regular actor emailing a famous director to ask for a role in an upcoming movie and Mark Ruffalo emailing a famous director to ask for a role in an upcoming movie? Mark Ruffalo makes it look good. That and, you know, Mark Ruffalo being an Oscar nominated actor who was one of the stars of 2012’s biggest movie. But mostly it’s that he makes things look good.
Ruffalo admitted during an interview with Collider that he’d recently emailed his Brothers Bloom director Rian Johnson to blatantly beg for a role in Star Wars: Episode VIII
“Rian, congratulations on everything you’ve been doing. And by the way, if there’s a part in Star Wars, please, anything, please consider considering me to join you.”
WHY IS THAT SO ENDEARING? Mark, all is forgiven for Now You See Me. But you’re going to have to up your game if you want me to forget about Now You See Me 2.
Yep, that’ll do it.
