J.J. Abrams is taking care of Star Wars: Episode VII while Rian Johnson will be responsible for Star Wars: Episode VIII and perhaps IX. We still have time until VIII comes out, but it’s never too early to talk about casting news and rumors. There’s one actor in the Disney/Marvel  camp who’s interested in being a part of it, and that’s Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers).

Ruffalo told Collider that he actually reached out to Johnson and expressed interest in being in the film.

“Desperately. 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 that he’ll even settle for a CGI role.

“Possibly, depending on timing. I love hanging out with Rian so that’s interesting to me but I would like a role. It’d be nice to have something. And honestly, even a CGI role. I am thrilled about motion capture. It’s been a journey for me to get there,” Ruffalo added.

After his experience with The Avengers, Ruffalo has become a fan of motion capture.

“After this last Avengers and the work we’re doing with that, and the advancement of the technology even since the first Avengers, I’m so excited about where we can go with motion capture. I hope that I’m on the front line of this kind of new frontier of creativity and performance that is completely boundless. Definitely be interested in doing something like that for Star Wars.”

Would you guys be down for Ruffalo to be in a galaxy far, far away?
