Watch the Trailer for HBO’s The Normal Heart

Maybe it's wrong to immediately compare the new teaser trailer for HBO's The Normal Heart, based on Larry Kramer's Tony-winning play, with Dallas Buyers Club based on the subject matter alone, but what if we just compare the "compassionate female doctor" roles? From the looks of things, they should have gone ahead and cast Julia Roberts in both productions. Hindsight is always 20/20. Meanwhile, Mark Ruffalo and Matt Bomer look like they're going to jerk the tears right out of our ducts.
