Watch: Conversations with Mark Ruffalo of ‘Spotlight’

Mark Ruffalo received his third Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Supporting Role for his performance in Spotlight — which is also comes after his nomination last year for Foxcatcher. Curiously, it took Ruffalo nearly two decades to finally get roles that he could sink his teeth into as an actor. Spotlight offered Ruffalo one of those roles, in which he portrays Michael Rezendes, an investigative reporter who won the Pulitzer Prize for reporting on the cover-up of sexual abuse by Roman Catholic priests. Spotlight is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.

In this conversation presented by the SAG-AFTRA Foundation and moderated by Jessica Shaw of EW Morning Live on Sirius XM, Ruffalo speaks about playing Rezendes and how important it is to get a character right in a movie based on a true story.
