As much as I love Jennifer Connelly (and boy do I), it was pretty much a foregone conclusion that she wouldn’t be returning to play Betty Ross in "The Incredible Hulk." But at least the producers made a really good choice for the sequel…
Fanboy-friendly Liv Tyler has been signed to play opposite Edward Norton (and a whole lot of CGI) in Louis Leterrier‘s "The Incredible Hulk," which promises a lot more action than the previous entry — and a lot less poodles.
Souces indicate that Bruce Banner and Betty Ross will be sort of estranged at the beginning of the movie, but get back together when all the chases and explosions and giant green transformations become a factor.
You’ll no doubt remember Liv Tyler from her lovely presence in the "Lord of the Rings" movies. (She was the hot elf. Not the blonde one.) Ms. Tyler is also well-known for her work in "Jersey Girl," "Empire Records," and "Armageddon," in which she co-starred alongside several animal crackers and her own bellybutton.
