William Hurt must have a thing for taking on heroes in green.
Hurt, who co-starred as semi-nemesis General Ross in " The Incredible Hulk," has signed on to Russell Crowe's untitled Robin Hood movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hurt will play the Earl of Pembroke, a potential rival for the green-clad outlaw.
Crowe signed on in the title role, with Cate Blanchett as Maid Marian.
Hurt, 59, recently starred in the second season of "Damages."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
