"I'mblessed in this film [We Were Soldiers], having an opportunity tohang around a lot of generals--real generals," Elliott told SCI FI."That's the character I'm playing in The Hulk. He's afour-star general. Although I'm out doing service to this movie, I've still gotthat in the back of my head."
Interestingly,the thesp also said he favors the comics over the popular TV series. "Iread the comics in college," Elliott said. "I didn't watch the TV showmuch. I wasn't much of a TV watcher in the '70s."
