Tim Robbins and Mark Ruffalo are about to get personal. Maybe a bit too personal.
The Oscar-winner and nominee have both signed on to star in "Thanks for Sharing," a new film about sex addicts participating in a 12-step recovery program. The film will be directed by a man Ruffalo knows well: Stuart Blumberg, the co-writer of Ruffalo's 2010 hit, "The Kids Are All Right." Both men earned Oscar nods for their work with the film.
It's yet another project in Rufalo's career resurgence, a new chapter that Blumberg is actually partially responsible for starting. Briefly retired from the film business, Ruffalo was tempted back into movies by "Kids" co-star Julianne Moore, who showed him Blumberg's script as bait.
Like Blumberg, Ruffalo recently became a first time director, as he just premiered his indie drama "Sympathy for Delicious." He's now filming "The Avengers," playing the part of The Incredible Hulk.
Robbins will soon appear in his own superhero flick, playing Senator Hammond in this summer's "Green Lantern."
