"I did one day [as a S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent, and when we were done, they asked me if I could stay longer. One of the casting directors said, 'You're going to be painted green. You know what that means, right?'

"I never signed a contract for the Hulk, just [one] as a S.H.I.E.L.D. soldier. When the Hulk's jumping from building to building, they had me jumping from particle board to particle board," he says. He also revealed he received $300 daily for his services; more than any extra.
