Lou Ferrigno is okay with the fact that the iconic super hero he portrayed in the late 1970s has been remade into a movie. Twice.
"I was in the movie. I just finished filming," Ferrigno told MTV. "It's a spectacular ovie. Very impressive."
Ever since 1977, when he began playing the character in a famous television series, Ferrigno has had a lot of time to ruminate on The Incredible Hulk.
And he says the new movie's star, Edward Norton, shares a similar obsession.
"We talked about it. I believe he rewrote the script because he's very involved with the character," Ferrigno said. "He's not just doing another movie, he wanted to be involved with the character. I think that's going to bring it to the next level."
Ferrigno went on to give Norton and the production his highest seal of approval, saying the work they were doing on the film will "be like the TV series."
"[Ed actually] reminds me a lot of Bill Bixby," Ferrigno said, referencing the actor who played Banner in the series. "He has a similar physique, similar personality. Ed is a very fine actor and it adds tremendous credibility for him to be involved with the movie."
