    After the tragic passing of his hairdresser brother Scott in December, Mark Ruffalo is getting back to work. The actor is making his directorial debut with the indie flick Sympathy for Delicious. Orlando Bloom and Laura Linney have just joined the cast of the film.

    The film is set to begin production in Los Angeles this week. The plot chronicles the life of a paralyzed DJ who is living on the streets of LA when he realizes he can cure the sick, but can't help himself. He eventually trades his unique gift in favor of pursuing his rock 'n' roll dreams. Bloom is taking over for James Franco, who was originally cast as the lead singer of the rock band in the film. Linney will play the band's manager.

    Christopher Thornton, who wrote the film, will star as the DJ and Ruffalo will portray a priest.
