Hurt hurtling to 'Hulk' cast


William Hurt has joined the all-star cast of Marvel Studios' "The Incredible Hulk" (HR 6/13).

The movie, which Universal is distributing, sees Bruce Banner/the Hulk on the run, trying to avoid capture long enough to cure the condition that turns him into a monster. Hurt will play Gen. Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, the man who has dedicated his life to capturing the Hulk —and who also is the father of Banner's love interest, Betty Ross.

Hurt joins Edward Norton, who is playing Banner, Liv Tyler as Betty and Tim Roth as villain the Abomination.
