Academy Award nominee Mark Ruffalo (Marvel's The Avengers, The Kids Are All Right), Matthew Bomer (White Collar, Magic Mike), Taylor Kitsch (Lone Survivor, John Carter), Emmy winner Jim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory) and Academy Award winner Julia Roberts are set to star in HBO Films' The Normal Heart.
Directed by Emmy winner Ryan Murphy (Eat, Pray, Love, Glee) and written by Academy Award nominee Larry Kramer (Women in Love), adapting his groundbreaking Tony Award-winning play of the same name, the drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-aids crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation's sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial. The Normal Heart will debut exclusively on HBO in May.
