Rian Johnson is helming Star Wars: Episode VIII, and that makes him a rather popular guy – to say the least. Mark Ruffalo has worked with Johnson in the past, and Ruffalo told Collider he recently sent Johnson the following email:
“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.”
Hey, asking doesn’t hurt, and Ruffalo certainly would be a popular choice. Who knows if anything will come of it, but the conversation didn’t stop there. The editor-in-chief of Collider tweeted about it and Johnson replied and brought Star Wars spinoff writer Gary Whitta in on it.

And then Whitta replied, too:
Twitter is a magical place.
