A ‘Delicious’ debut

Pals check out Ruffalo's helming bow

Orlando Bloom and Mark Ruffalo shared a warm bro-hug Monday at the Sunshine Cinema, where they preemed “Sympathy for Delicious.” Ruffalo, who makes his helming debut with the Maya Entertainment pic, said Bloom was an easy cast.

“He came to me and said he wanted to play the part,” Ruffalo said. “He really needed to do it, to have this experience for his acting. He was feeling really empty as an actor, for his soul and his heart.”

“I would be a rock star in a heart beat,” said Bloom, who plays one in the film. Co-stars Laura Linney, Christopher Thornton and Noah Emmerich all came out to support Ruffalo’s debut.

Linney, who plays a band manager in the pic, has her own rock fantasy. “I would’ve liked to have been a ’70s funk queen.”

Before the Mondrian Soho afterparty, Ruffalo introduced his pic to the aud. “It’s really goddamned hard to make even a bad movie. So let’s just start there.”
