Ruffalo Is Delicious

08.05.2008

Mel Gibson, George Clooney and Clint Eastwood are members of an exclusive club. Not only can they act in a film, but they can direct the hell out of one too. The amount of respect I have for guys like that is just simply through the roof.

It worries me then, when an actor I admire, attempts to leave the confines of the frame, and sit in the potentially perilous director’s chair. Even more so when they try to do both at the same time. Next on that list is Mark Ruffalo, an actor who has done only solid work in my opinion, and is widely considered to be one of Hollywood’s best and brightest. The film is called SYMPATHY FOR DELICIOUS and the plot is highly, highly…out there. Chris Thornton, who wrote the script, plays "Delicious" Dean O'Dwyer, a paralyzed DJ struggling to survive in his wheelchair on the streets of L.A. After acquiring the ability to cure the sick – he must come to terms with his gift with the help of a Jesuit priest played by Ruffalo. James Franco plays a rock singer in a band that exploits the suddenly famous healer. Um, sure.

Mark my man, by the looks of things you have your work cut out for you. But in all honesty you seem like a pretty intelligent and decent dude so I wish you nothing but the best of luck. In the meantime I, along with the rest of the Ruffalo-heads out there will be keeping our fingers collectively crossed.

collateral

Ruffalo really disappeared into the role of Det. Fanning in Collateral, in a good way.

He's a great character actor.

ZODIAC

Zodiac is a masterpiece. Ruffalo seems like one of those guys who has great chops and would be a good director. I wish him luck.

Ruffalo gave his best performance in Eternal Sunshine. But I can't decide which of those 3 movies I like best. They all rock.

also...

it may also reward you to remember that sir anthony hopkins has directed himself as well (in 2007's Slipstream, in which he wrote, directed and starred in). it was pretty out there, too. so here's hoping ruffalo makes something special.

Eternal

Eternal Sunshine is my fav by far, and Ruffalo has never disappointed. The man knows how to deliver and I have no worries or quos going into his directorial debut. If you know the media then you will deliver... Go to it my man and knock our socks off!!!

Ruffalo's pretty much awesome, even if he had made some bad choices but everyone's gotta take an easy paycheck once in a while. I think this movie could be right up his alley.

i'd have to go with

13 Going on 30. Yeah, either that or his amazing role in Just Like Heaven.



Seriously though, he is pretty much the man when he is on screen. He is the third guy in movie history that allowed me to sit through a Reese Witherspoon flick without wanting to die (the first two being Markie Mark and Jaoquin of course).
