Tim Robbins will co-star with Mark Ruffalo in Thanks for Sharing, the directorial debut of The Kids Are All Right screenwriter Stuart Blumberg. Risky Business reports that Blumberg’s script “revolves around characters in a 12-step program for recovering sex addicts in New York City.” While Robbins earned an Oscar for his dramatic work, I’ve always found him to be delightful in comic roles even though Thanks for Sharing is being billed as a “dramedy”. Filming is slated to begin this fall.
Robbins and Ruffalo will both next be seen in superhero films. Robbins plays Senator Hammond, father of villain Hector Hammond (Peter Sarsgaard) in Green Lantern. Ruffalo is currently filming on The Avengers where he plays Bruce Banner/Hulk.
