Hulk Actor Jack Colvin Dies

Actor Jack Colvin, best known for his role as tabloid reporter Jack McGee in the 1970s TV series The Incredible Hulk has died at the age of 71, reports the Associated Press.

Colvin died Thursday in North Hollywood of complications following a stroke, said his longtime friend, actress Maaren Edvard, an instructor and administrator at Michael Chekhov Studio USA West, which was founded by Colvin.

Colvin had a long history as a stage actor when he was approached about the “Hulk” role in 1977. The series, based on the Marvel Comics character, aired on CBS until 1982.

“When they told me the title, I laughed. But then they gave me two scripts to read and I knew the series would go,” he once told the Los Angeles Times.
