Lou Ferigno was probably about the best you could hope for in a live-action Hulk.

It's hard to compare make-up and CGI fairly. I don't think you really can.

It was Lou Ferrigno those days, although Arnie (Mr. Governator) would have filled the bill even better.

I think 2012 CGI Hulk gets his inspiration from 1978, only in a giant size

When we found out the "new" Hulk was CG, we decided not to see the film. They could have gotten any professional bodybuilder or wrestler, but chose to go the fake route.

I loved Lou Ferrignos Performance in Hulk, but the new one looks much more like the Comic-Hulk.
