Mark Ruffalo was a skate punk in his teen years, then came to Los Angeles to study drama at the Stella Adler Academy. It took him six years to complete a three-year course of study there. Through the 1990s, Ruffalo went to more than 800 auditions, landing almost nothing but the occasional TV commercial and roles in plays at tiny Los Angeles area venues. Ruffalo's first prominent film role was the lead in You Can Count on Me (2000), and he had a large role in John Woo's Windtalkers (2002). That same year he had a benign tumor cut out of his brain, though at the time, Ruffalo's agent announced that only "a minor cyst" was removed from his ear. The surgery and ten months of recovery cost Ruffalo a role in Signs. In Ruffalo's first post-op role, he played Meg Ryan's sex interest in Jane Campion's In the Cut (2003).
