Best known for his role as Obnoxious Rich Wiener in Zach Snyder's Dawn of the Dead remake, square-jawed actor-type Ty Burrell is set to play Doc Samson in Ed Norton's upcoming franchise reboot, The Incredible Hulk.

I'm not familiar with the character, but a glance at his Wikipedia page reveals that he zapped himself with gamma radiation – the same stuff that gave Bruce Banner his powers – and acquired some super-strength. You could tell how powerful he was by the length of his hair. "Doc Samson," get it?

The Incredible Hulk stars Norton, Liv Tyler and Tom Roth. It's set for a June release.
