Mark Ruffalo has gained millions of fans for his portrayal of The Hulk in the Marvel films. Unfortunately, roles outside of the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been scarce. If you’re looking to see Ruffalo in a different light, he’ll turn heads in his new role.

Welcome Back, Ruffalo

The star will make his return to HBO in the limited series I Know This Much Is True. This series is based on the 1998 Wally Lamb book, which was part of the Oprah’s Book Club.

HBO

Ruffalo first appeared on the cable channel in The Normal Heart back in 2014. His performance earned him a SAG Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Miniseries or Television Movie. As an executive producer, he earned the Emmy for Outstanding Television Movie. On Twitter, Ruffalo stated, “Excited to be working with the HBO team again! Can’t wait for you all to see this story:”

We’re Seeing Double

In the film, Ruffalo will play twin brothers Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. Following his work on The Light Between Oceans, Derek Cianfrance has been chosen to write and direct the film. Much like The Normal Heart, Ruffalo will be one of the film’s executive producers.

Sony Pictures Classics

Filming for this six episode miniseries is slated to begin in the near future.

Ruffalo On The Move

Aside from I Know This Much Is True, Ruffalo is rumored to be a part of Newsflash. The movie follows CBS’ ongoing coverage of the assassination of John F. Kennedy. Ruffalo is rumored to portray Don Hewitt, who created 60 Minutes following the assassination.

Disney/Marvel

Ruffalo will return to playing The Hulk in Avengers 4, which comes out on May 3rd. He recently got into some fun with producers Russo Brothers following him “spoiling” the Avengers 4 title. The producers “fired” him for accidentally dropping the title on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
