Actor Mark Ruffalo is set to return to Broadway for the first time in more than a decade with "The Price".

The 49-year-old star will step into the role that was initially set to be played by John Turturro, reported Variety.

Turturro had to bow out of the show due to the filming schedule of his screen commitments.

Ruffalo will portray a man called Victor, who returns home to sell the remains of his parents estate.

Directed by Terry Kinney, "The Price" begins previews February 16 ahead of a March 16 opening at the American Airlines Theaters.

“The Price” was first staged on Broadway in 1968, and has been revived three times since, most recently in 1999.
