Mark Ruffalo Returning to the Stage in New Play?
Mark Ruffalo, of HBO's THE NORMAL HEART, BEGIN AGAIN with Keira Knightley, THE AVENGERS, the upcoming film SPOTLIGHT and more, recently spoke with Deadline about a whole slew of subjects, including, of course, a potential return to the stage.
Ruffalo said he not only wants to see Broadway's THIS IS OUR YOUTH as soon as he can, but that he also has a play in the wings.
"I'm dying to come back," Ruffalo told Deadline. "I would love to come back, and I actually read a beautiful new play by Timothy McNeil that I am going to start just seeing if there's some interest in it. It's a really mature, very literary piece that is very powerful and I think very timely. It's a hell of a piece of theater. And you know, in the great tradition of the theater, I refuse to be any one thing. Or any one person."
Ruffalo last appeared on Broadway in 2006's Awake and Sing!, for which he was nominated for a Tony and won a Drama Desk Award.
He was nominated for a 2014 Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for HBO's THE NORMAL HEART. The film garnered 16 nominations in all. The actor will next be seen on the big screen in AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON and NOW YOU SEE ME 2. Among his recent movie credits are FOXCATCHER, NOW YOU SEE ME, IRON MAN 3 and more. Ruffalo was also nominated for an Oscar for 2010's The Kids Are All Right.
