The cast for the new film "The Incredible Hulk" continues to grow.  William Hurt has joined Ed Norton, Liv Tyler and Tim Roth.  Hurt will play General 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.  The film will be directed by Louis Leterrier ("The Transporter"). 

Hurt, Norton and even Roth to a certain extent give this film instant credibility.  I don't much care for Liv Tyler in a leading lady role, especially when you think that Jennifer Connelly played Betty Ross a few years ago.  That's probably the main hold up for me.  Well, that and Leterrier, who has three feature films to his credit, the third being "Danny the Dog" with Jet Li (I never heard of it before I checked his imdb page).  Filming begins later this year in Toronto.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
