William Hurt Cast In The Incredible Hulk

Academy Award winning actor William Hurt (Dark City, The Village) has joined the cast of The Incredible Hulk. Louis Leterrier (Transporter) plans to star shooting this summer in Toronto with Ed Norton as Bruce Banner, a scientist on the run, trying to avoid capture long enough to cure the condition that turns him into a monster.

Hurt will play General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross, the father of Banner's love interest, Betty Ross (Liv Tyler), who hopes to capture the Hulk. Tim Roth is also on board to play the comic book villain Emil Blonsky/the Abomination. Hurt seems perfect for the role, although I'm still not completely sure about Tyler (who seems to be the odd person out).
