Statement: 'Not CGI, it has to come back to good stories'
Ferrigno, who had portrayed the green "big guy" for the first-ever time, in a 1977 show and a few TV movies, said, "Today there is so much emphasis on CGI. So it has to come back to good stories." "That's why three decades of people, I still meet fans of [the TV series] and they bring it up how much it affected their lives."
