The important characters are running thin as the cast of The Incredible Hulk continues to get bigger and greener. The latest addition is Tim Blake Nelson, who will play Samuel Sterns, aka "The Leader."
Tim Blake Nelson for The Incredible Hulk
Samuel Sterns is one of Hulk's major antagonists, a menial worker in a chemical research plant who is bombarded with gamma radiation. He emerges from his accident not only green-skinned but also superintelligent, with an oversized brain.
In short, the Hulk will have found an equal of different proportions.
Nelson joins the ever impressive, and still growing, cast that includes Edward Norton (Bruce Banner), Liv Tyler (Betty Ross), Tim Roth (Emil Blonsky) and William Hurt (General Ross).
Louis Leterrier will direct The Incredible Hulk off a script by Zak Penn.
