“My e-mail to Rian after all these years was, ‘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 said during an interview at the Toronto International Film Festival. “It’d be nice to have something.  And honestly, even a CGI role.”
