Mark Ruffalo not on 'watch list', says Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security

In a recent story published in GQ, Mark Ruffalo said that his involvement with the promotion of Gasland, a documentary about natural gas-drilling, landed him on a “watch list compiled by Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security.” But a spokesperson for the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security denied that the actor had ever been included on any list, or that any such list existed. A call to Ruffalo’s representative requesting comment or clarification was not immediately returned.

    Someone feels he’s not getting enough attention.

    • davey

      Ummmm…Ruffalo has NEVER gotten attention for anything. He’s the most under-appreciated actor of his generation!

    sam, you’re not taking the State of Pennsylvania at it’s word, are you?

    • Jessica

      FYI it’s the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, not the State of Pennsylvania.

      • AD

        We have 50 states, no 49 states and a commonwealth. I believe “state” is appropriate no matter what PA calls itself.

    Although he’s a good actor, based on the lack of box office success of most of his meetings, he’s not on too many people’s “watch list.”

    • dropper

      LOL, good one ?.

    … why does Pennsylvania have an Office of Homeland Security? Do they fear West Virginia may invade to take their coal mines?

    • Dominic

      Probably. They should be happy they’re not Kansas though. From what I hear that Nebraska will mount a first strike any day now…

  • Nicole

    He’s on my “watchlist” and I live in PA, does that count? :-)

  • johnnysam

    regrding Christian’s comment-I’m from West Virginia….and trust me, we don’t want anything from Pennsylvania. : )

    • matt

      West Virginia is a cesspool that is overflowing into Pennsylvania unfortunately.

    He’s not on our LIST. (scoffs) Wait – what I meant to SAAAAY, is that there IS no list. Ahem. No list. Moving on now…

  • jt

    Wouldn’t surprise me if he were on the list. Our gov’t does a LOT of stupid stuff. Besides, when they saw his last name I’m sure that didn’t help. It’s so weird. (eye roll)

    The PA Office of Homeland Security has been in the news recently for this type of crap. The Marcellus Shale Coalition has them on their payroll.

  • Chaz Winterbottom

    Jeez, don’t Hulk out on us Ruffalo.

  • Sooz

    PA HS is lying. They had such a list and it was discovered and exposed a few months ago.

  • mia

    Twilight sucks! Tangled is the best movie ever!

    His lives in my town.

    There has to be only one list in one agent’s desk, and all the other agents know about it. It doesn’t have to be an official agency thing. I know, I’ve been a bureaucrat, although not in a “sensitive” agency.

    “Homeland Security denied that the actor had ever been included on any list, or that any such list existed.”

    gee I’ve NEVER heard THAT line before.
