If you, like everyone else in the whole wide world, were disappointed by the last big screen installment of the Hulk, and are gun shy about seeing the new Incredible Hulk movie that comes out this week, well I've got just the thing for you. Firstly, our own Zach Oat promises that the new flick is not only better than the last one (I mean, it would have been tough for it to be worse). Secondly, if you are just being frugal with your money until you hear what your friends thing or until it eventually ends up on DVD, recall the good old days of the Hulk without ever leaving the comfort of your couch. Through the magic of the internet, the pilot of The Incredible Hulk series is available below for your viewing pleasure. Though a bit on the dated side (especially with the effects), seeing this again and remembering why I used to adore the combo of Bruce Bixby and Lou Ferrigno makes me even more grateful that watching videos actually counts as work for me.
A ton of new TV casting news has come out, and you won't believe who's coming to your television! First off, Hellboy himself, Ron Perlman, will be joining the cast of FX's new series Anarchy, where he will play the president of an outlaw motorcycle club that protects its California town from drug dealers and corporate developers. He replaced Scott Glenn, who played the part in the pilot, when the show became more of a dark comedy. Other movies Ron Perlman should replace Scott Glenn in: The Hunt for Red October, The Silence of the Lambs and Backdraft. A little Ron Perlman makes everything better!
NBC and Fox are down, so now it's ABC's turn
At one point, professional wrestlers Hulk Hogan and Jesse "The Body" Ventura were on top of the world. Hogan was arguably the face of America in the 1980s, and the star of numerous films that hilariously pointed out how muscular he was. While Ventura's film career was not quite as impressive, he did manage to parlay his frequent appearances in Arnold Schwarzenegger movies into a public seat, acting as governor of the great state of Minnesota from 1999-2003, much to the dismay of Garrison Keillor. But now, with their careers on the decline, they have fallen into the quicksand trap from which there is no escape: reality television.
