(Newser) – Mark Ruffalo has a new hero: a stranger by the name of Ross McHale. Ruffalo apparently lost his wallet in Chicago last week while in town to serve as a grand marshal at a race at Chicagoland Speedway, Us reports, and McHale just happened to find it. Though he didn't recognize the actor's name on the ID inside, he Googled it and stumbled across Ruffalo's Twitter account, TMZ reports. "I have your wallet. Found it in a cab in Chicago on Friday. Let me know the best way to get it back to you. Thanks," McHale tweeted at the Avengers star on Sunday.

Ruffalo replied, "thank you! Wow! Another point for the decency in people," and asked McHale to send him a private message. "You are a hero!" Ruffalo added. McHale tells TMZ, "If [Mark] ever finds my wallet I expect him to return the favor." And though TMZ reported Ruffalo didn't offer a reward, McHale later tweeted that claim was "false and misleading. He couldn't have been more gracious."

I've found lots of stuff over the years and returned. It's the right thing to do. I lost my pocketbook when some of my friends were visiting Philly. We didn't realize it was gone until we were almost home. It was like 3 am. The next day I called very place we went and I was able to find it. But the credit cards and my Driver license and the $50 that was in my wallet did not accompany it back when returned. Luckily, the credit cards were cancelled and I was able to get a duplicate drivers license.
