Mark Alan Ruffalo (born November 22, 1967 in Kenosha, Wisconsin) is an American actor, director, producer and screenwriter.
He portrayed the Marvel Comics character, Bruce Banner/The Hulk in The Avengers (2012), and will reprise his role in Avengers: Age of Ultron (2015). Other notable films in which he has starred or co-starred are You Can Count on Me (2000), Collateral (2004), 13 Going on 30 (2004), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), Just Like Heaven (2005), Zodiac (2007), Shutter Island (2010), Now You See Me (2013), and Begin Again (2013).
For his roles in The Kids Are All Right (2010) and Foxcatcher (2014), he received Academy Award nominations for Best Supporting Actor. He also won a Screen Actors Guild Award and received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or a Movie nomination for The Normal Heart, which he also produced. Ruffalo advocates for the creation of 100% clean energy (including a campaign to "Put Solar On It" and various anti-fracking groups including Artists Against Fracking).
He is a supporter of the Solutions Project and the 100% Campaign, which advocates for 100% clean energy for 100% of the people. In 2010, Ruffalo claimed he had been placed on a terror advisory list after organizing screenings for the documentary GasLand about fracking. However, the Department of Homeland Security denied that they had him on any such list.
Since June 2000, Ruffalo has been married to former French-American actress Sunrise Coigney (born Christina Sunrise Coigney on September 17, 1972 in San Francisco), and they have three children: a son Keen, born in 2001, and daughters Bella Noche, born in 2005, and Odette, born in 2007, in Los Angeles, California. The family now lives in New York City. In 2002, Ruffalo was diagnosed with an acoustic neuroma, a type of brain tumor, and had surgery; the tumor was benign, but resulted in a period of partial facial paralysis. He fully recovered from the paralysis and returned to good health as well as an active life and movie career.
On December 1, 2008, Ruffalo's brother, Scott, was shot at his Beverly Hills condominium, with one report describing the shooting as "execution-style" in the back of the head. Scott died on December 8, 2008. Police took two people into custody: a woman who is considered a suspect and a man considered a "person of interest". One of the suspects reportedly told police that Scott Ruffalo shot himself while playing Russian roulette; the witnesses were later released as the police investigation continued. The female suspect later died of a purported drug overdose.
