Grieving Mark Ruffalo drops out of movie

Mark Ruffalo, who is grieving the tragic death of his younger brother Scott from a gunshot wound, has dropped out of the independent film Greenburg, according to the Hollywood Reporter. His replacement in the film, written and directed by Noah Baumbach, will likely be Ben Stiller. Meanwhile, TMZ.com reports that Shaha Mishaal Adham, who was a friend of Scott’s, told police he died during a game of Russian Roulette. She said she was at Ruffalo’s apartment to pick up her Land Rover, which he’d borrowed. Another person, who has not been identified to media, was also present. According to Adham, after Ruffalo shot himself in the head, she left the home in a panic and called her boyfriend, Brian Scofield, who called 911. Both were questioned by police and released. The investigation continues.

    good photo
    many sympathies to him and the family
    interested to see what this investigation uncovers, the facts released to the media are always minimal till it’s completed

    Dumb@$$ calls her boyfriend and gets him to call 911???? Even if she was in shock, what about the unnamed person who was supposedly with her? And why would he wait and do this in the what, 2 minutes that it takes for her to pick up her Land Rover? Hey wait! Mary Kate Olsen drives a Land Rover too….and she too calls others instead of calling 911 (in the case of Heath Ledger, that is).

    yeah, something sure seems fishy here huh nancy? i think its crazy ! clearly, no one in their right mind would be playing that game, and since she called someone ELSE who called 911, i am thinking she knows or did something she doesnt want anyone else 2 know.
