Mark Ruffalo plays dual roles in this miniseries from the filmmaker behind 'Blue Valentine'.

Mark Ruffalo has always been a stellar actor, and he has the resume to prove it. But he's in particularly excellent form in I Know This Much Is True. It isn't just because he's as reliably great as ever in the six-part HBO miniseries, which is adapted from the book of the same name. He is, of course; however he's also playing two roles.

While identical twins Dominick and Thomas Birdsey look alike, they have their own struggles — including, in the latter's case, paranoid schizophrenia. Set in the 90s in Three Rivers, Connecticut, the series charts the intricacies of their intertwined lives as past and present troubles collide. It's no slouch behind the lens, either, with Blue Valentine and The Place Beyond the Pines filmmaker Derek Cianfrance directing and co-writing the entire thing.
