With Eric Bana reportedly out of the running to play Bruce Banner in the second Hulk film, rumors on replacements are starting to surface. Cinematical reports on one such rumor circling Prison Break‘s Dominic Purcell (i.e. the slated-to-be-executed older brother to Wentworth Miller, who has the utility belt-like tattoos):
Anyway, rumors have been swirling as to who will take over for Eric Bana in the role. To date, folks like Brendan Fraser, Dominic Purcell and Adam Garcia have been mentioned as possibilities. Well, today Dominic Purcell was a guest on a local radio show here in New York and he was asked whether there was any truth to his involvement in the next Hulk flick. AICN has the actual audio from the interview, and based on his weird answer, it definitely sounds like he’s our guy. I imagine he’s currently in negotiations to star and can’t really get into it. Hey, I like the guy on Prison Break — he certainly has that quiet, intriguing, “What’s up with this guy?” persona. Good choice? Bad move? Thoughts?
A new season of Prison Break starts tonight on Fox, giving fans the opportunity to see Purcell in action.
