His first roles Mark Ruffalo received on television and is known for such films as Dentist (1996) and Chase with the Devil (1999).
In the late nineties Ruffalo’s casual acquaintance with screenwriter Kenneth Lonergan has led to very fruitful cooperation. Having played in several Lonergan’s plays, Mark received a role in his film You Can Count on Me (2000). The drama was awarded an Oscar, and Mark Ruffalo was finally spotted in Hollywood.
For younger generation, this actor is known mostly for his role of Hulk. This green giant didn’t leave anyone indifferent. But for the very actor, the role became a real surprise, especially, the expectations that were set to him for the sake of role preparation.
When Mark Ruffalo began intensive training, preparing for the role of Hulk in the film The Avengers he was really excited. However, as the actor told in numerous interviews, unlike the performers of the roles of other superheroes, he didn’t have to gain muscle mass, but to lose weight instead.
The actor was really shocked and said the shooting team was chasing him mercilessly. When he already lost eight kilograms, he picked up a couple of them back, eating only beef. The star complained that he should have controlling his weight and appearance very severely. In addition to the gym, Ruffalo had to do gymnastics, pilates and taekwondo. Doing so much different activities and following a special diet was a real challenge.
Even before the movie was released, it was reported that the role of a green monster would require the actor to have a good physical shape, since for the first time the character would not be completely computerized, but would be created using image capture systems, so many of Ruffalo’s tricks had to be performed by himself.
The picture was released in early May 2012.
