JUST LIKE HEAVEN

MARK RUFFALO (David) has a fast-growing list of diverse film credits that have established him as one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men. He starred in four very different films in 2004, and has three more films upcoming following "Just Like Heaven.” He next stars opposite Jennifer Aniston in the comedy-drama "Rumor Has It,” under the direction of Rob Reiner, and then joins an ensemble cast in the political drama "All the King's Men,” written and directed by Steven Zaillian, based on the novel by Robert Penn Warren.

Currently, Ruffalo is in production on "Zodiac,” the true-life crime drama about the hunt for the infamous zodiac serial killer, being directed by David Fincher.

Last year, Ruffalo co-starred with Tom Cruise and Jamie Foxx in Michael Mann's dramatic thriller "Collateral,” playing an LAPD detective on the trail of a contract killer. Also in 2004, he starred in the romantic comedy hit "13 Going on 30,” opposite Jennifer Garner; the Oscar®-winning indie film "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind,” with Jim Carrey and Kate Winslet; and the independent feature "We Don't Live Here Anymore,” opposite Naomi Watts, which Ruffalo also executive produced.

Ruffalo first came to the attention of critics and audiences in 2000 with his role in the award-winning independent film "You Can Count on Me,” in which he starred with Laura Linney under the direction of Kenneth Lonergan. His performance in that film brought Ruffalo the New Generation Award from the Los Angeles Film Critics Association and Best Actor honors at the Montreal Film Festival, as well as an Independent Spirit Award nomination for Best Actor.

His other film credits include Jane Campion's thriller "In the Cut,” opposite Meg Ryan; "My Life Without Me,” with Sarah Polley, which was featured at several international film festivals; John Woo's World War II drama "Windtalkers”; Austin Chick's "XX/XY,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival; Rod Lurie's "The Last Castle,” with Robert Redford and James Gandolfini; and the cult favorite comedy "Safe Men.”

In addition to his work in front of the camera, Ruffalo co-wrote the screenplay for the independent film "The Destiny of Marty Fine,” in which he also starred. The film was the first runner-up at the 1995 Slamdance Film Festival.

An accomplished stage actor, Ruffalo has appeared in more than 30 plays on the stages of New York and Los Angeles. He won a Lucille Lortel Award for Best Actor for his performance in the off-Broadway production of "This is Our Youth,” written by Kenneth Lonergan. He more recently appeared off-Broadway in the play "The Moment When,” written by Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winner James Lapine. Ruffalo also directed Timothy McNeil's play "Margaret” in Los Angeles.
