Mark Ruffalo stars in Foxcatcher, a Centerpiece film screening at Guild Hall in East Hampton on Saturday, October 11. He will be the subject of “A Conversation With…” on Sunday, October 12, at Bay Street Theater.
In Foxcatcher, which is centered on Olympic wrestlers, Ruffalo plays Dave Schultz and Channing Tatum plays his brother, Mark Schultz. The brothers fall into the orbit of eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Steve Carell), who wants to push them to fame and glory.
