It’s already cool enough to have Mark Ruffalo star in any film or TV series. But two of him? Make that a double delight, then.
As it turns out, the Avengers: Endgame and upcoming Parasite star will be acting alongside himself in the new HBO TV series, I Know This Much Is True, which premieres on 11 May. Its original release date was meant to be 28 April, but now has been pushed back two weeks, which isn’t that long of a wait.
Ruffalo will play as identical twin brothers Dominick and Thomas Birdsey. Based on the 1998 novel of the same name by Wally Lamb, the story will revolve around “a family saga that follows their parallel lives in an epic story of betrayal, sacrifice and forgiveness.”
The Academy Award nominee will be joined by the likes of Philip Ettinger (Elementary, Twelve), who will play younger versions of the twins, as well as Melissa Leo (The Fighter), Kathryn Hahn (WandaVision, Free Agent), Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers), and Rosie O’Donnell (Tarzan).
Ruffalo will also executive produce I Know This Much Is True, alongside writer and director Derek Cianfrance (Blue Valentine).
I Know This Much Is True will premiere on 11 May on HBO GO and HBO.
Marion has a serious RPG addiction. Sometimes it bleeds into real life; he forgets to sleep because he thinks he has a Witcher’s body clock. Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
