Will Mark Ruffalo be one with The Force?

It's possible as the actor is trying to land a role in the new Star Wars.

Mark Ruffalo previously worked with Star Wars: Episode VIII and IX director Rian Johnson, and while at the Toronto International Film Festival told Collider he "desperately" wants to be in Star Wars and sent an e-mail to Johnson:

"Rian, congratulations on everything you’ve been doing.  And by the way, if there’s a part in Star Wars, please, anything, please consider considering me to join you."

Ruffalo continued with mention even if it's a CGI role, he would love it.

I love hanging out with Rian so that’s interesting to me but I would like a role.

It’d be nice to have something.  And honestly, even a CGI role.

Mark Ruffalo then compared his motion-capture work on the Hulk from the Avengers movies.

I am thrilled about motion capture.  It’s been a journey for me to get there.  After this last Avengers and the work we’re doing with that, and the advancement of the technology even since the first Avengers, I’m so excited about where we can go with motion capture.  I hope that I’m on the front line of this kind of new frontier of creativity and performance that is completely boundless.  Definitely be interested in doing something like that for Star Wars.

Mark Ruffalo stars as Bruce Banner and the Hulk in "The Avengers: Age Of Ultron" which has a May 1st 2015 release.
