Mark Ruffalo Discusses His Try-Out For Harvey Dent/Two-Face Role In ‘The Dark Knight’

Thanks to a blockbuster summer for comic book adaptations, it seems like every major celebrity in Hollywood wants to hop on the superhero flick bandwagon — some even have specific characters in mind that they would love to play.

However, in the case of Mark Ruffalo, breaking into the four-color genre came darn-near close to a reality. In an interview with MTV Movies promoting the upcoming film, “Blindness” (opening in theaters October 3), Ruffalo talks about auditioning for the part of the ill-fated Harvey Dent (a.k.a. Two-Face) in “The Dark Knight.” Check out the video clip below where Ruffalo breaks the news about his try-out for Christopher Nolan, and also talks about some of his favorite comics growing up.
