Default Re: Why Mark Ruffalo?

Ruffalo wasn't disinterested in playing the role. He was showing disinterest as part of the role. There was a certain world weariness and cynicism about him, because he's been through much and rejected by many. Therefore he's guarded and doesn't want to come across as too passionate about things for fear of being burnt again or bringing out the beast. When Stark treats him like a human being, you can see a sense of acceptance and purpose at being valued and doing something worthwhile.
