Stiller Replaces Ruffalo on ‘Greenberg’ Duties
It looks increasingly likely that Ben Stiller will be joining the cast of Greenburg, the latest dra-medy (because the alternative co-ma just didn’t sound as catchy) from Noah Baumbach, the acclaimed writer-director behind indie classics such as Noah and the Whale and Margot and the Wedding.
The Hollywood Reporter has stated that Stiller will be replacing Mark Ruffalo in the role. While a definitive reason has yet to be given, it is believed that Ruffalo pulled out after the brutal death of his brother, who police say died in ‘suspicious circumstances’.
The plot is still very hush-hush, but given that it’s the brainchild of Baumbach, it will more than likely focus on the dysfunctional familial relationships and the heee-larious situations that arise from them.
