You can't just hang around being sexy all day. At some point, you have to get back to work.
So it is for Channing Tatum, PEOPLE's Sexiest Man Alive, who was spotted Wednesday with a barely recognizable Mark Ruffalo on the Pittsburgh set of the movie Foxcatcher.
Tatum, 32, and Ruffalo, 45, play brothers Mark and David Schultz in the film, which is based on the real-life story of U.S. Olympic wrestler David's murder at the hands of team sponsor John du Pont of the famed du Pont family.

Superheroes have it easy: We only expect them to save the planet every now and again. Superhero movies, though, have the daunting task of illuminating our souls.
Dazzling effects, strong stories and bold heroes mean bubkes unless they inspire us. Thank the gods, The Avengers is just what it ought to be – inspired.
After five recent films about the solo exploits of Marvel heroes Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.), Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Captain America (Chris Evans) and the Hulk (Mark Ruffalo, outclassing Edward Norton), The Avengers weaves its narrative threads into a vibrant display of effects wizardry with characters to love and wit to spare.

In real-life, Robert Downey Jr. doesn't possess superhuman strength, genius intellect or that famed power suit.
But Iron Man, his on-screen Avengers alter-ego gifted with his body, brains and superhero wardrobe, isn't lacking – and fans of the franchise agree.
According to data collected on the movie's Facebook page, 37 percent of fans polled would most like to be Iron Man (identity: Anthony Edward "Tony" Stark) if they could transform into any Marvel superhero.

While in Rome to promote their movie, the cast of The Avengers stopped into Antica Pesa, a restaurant that has been family-owned for three generations, to enjoy a meal together.
Mark Ruffalo, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston dined on buffalo mozzarella, homemade prosciutto, breadsticks and grilled zucchini with goat cheese, before digging into two types of homemade pasta – one with tomato and bacon and one with cacio e pepe (cheese and pepper).
After that, they shared a course of grilled beef with spinach and rosemary potatoes.
Finally, for dessert, the movie stars indulged in – what else? – Italian cheesecake.

After a rough year, Scarlett Johansson is ready to step forward confidently with beau Nate Naylor – and a leopard on a leash, just for kicks.
The actress, exuding a purring glamour, was shot with a big cat and her Avengers costar Mark Ruffalo for the May 2012 issue of Vogue by photographer Mario Testino.
Leopards, movies, new love – what more could a girl ask for? "Yeah, everything's been really great right now," she says of her life. "It's been a good time."

Scott Ruffalo had "very slight" traces of cocaine, morphine and alcohol in his system at the time of his death, L.A. County Coroner spokesman Ed Winter confirms to PEOPLE.
"Ruffalo's toxicology results showed a very slight trace of cocaine and alcohol," Winter says. "He also had slight traces of morphine which could've been due to prescription medication.
"All we can conclude from this is that he was not under the influence of drugs when he was shot due to the small amount," says Winter, who adds that coroners still maintain Ruffalo's death was a homicide.
Ruffalo, 39, the younger brother of actor Mark Ruffalo, was found shot in the head Dec. 1 at his Beverly Hills condominium and died a week later.

It's official: The death of Mark Ruffalo's brother has been ruled a homicide.
The L.A. County Coroner's Office has determined that someone else shot Scott Ruffalo in the head, spokesman Craig Harvey told the Associated Press.
Beverly Hills police arrested, but later released, Shaha Mishaal Adham, 26. At the time, the woman's attorney claimed that Scott shot himself during a game of Russian roulette.
Scott, 39, was shot Dec. 1 and died a week later. Police have not revealed a motive in the case.

Mark Ruffalo – who's still reeling from this week's tragic death of his brother, Scott – has dropped out of the indie drama Greenburg, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
He will likely be replaced by Ben Stiller in the film, written and directed by Noah Baumbach, says the trade paper.
No reason was given for the casting shakeup. But the news comes just three days after Scott Ruffalo succumbed to a gunshot wound he sustained Dec. 1.
