Veteran actor Lou Ferrigno has confessed he can't take Mark Ruffalo "seriously" as the Hulk
Lou Ferrigno can't take Mark Ruffalo "seriously" as the Hulk.
The 67-year-old actor – who played the Hulk in the CBS TV series – has hailed Mark's abilities as a performer, but doesn't think he's convincing as the Marvel character.
He explained: "Mark is a wonderful actor. But we've had three different actors – we've had Eric Bana, Edward Norton, and Mark Ruffalo.
"I like Bill Bixby the best, I like Edward Norton. But Ruffalo – I think he's a wonderful actor, he blends in with the Marvel aspect of the 'Avengers' – but I can't take him seriously enough."
Meanwhile, Mark recently revealed he got a "dummy script" for 'Avengers: Endgame'.
The actor admitted that in order to avoid spoilers, directors Joe and Anthony Russo gave him a script with fake scenes so he didn't accidentally let any details of the film slip.
Mark – who has also starred in hit films like 'Foxcatcher' – said: "I got a script, but it was a dummy.
"There were scenes in there that I thought we were shooting that nobody ever shot."
Anthony insisted that he and his brother were doing the cast a "favour" with the fake scripts by making it easier for them to keep secrets.
He explained: "It's like doing them a favour, because it's hard to keep secrets, it's hard to keep your mouth closed."
