Rick Springfield – The Man Behind “The Incredible Hulk”

As one of the most popular superheroes in history, “The Incredible Hulk” is a cult classic that has inspired fans for decades. In the 1970s, Springfield first gained prominence in comic books as a young boy and continued to act as a super-hero on television. But before he became the legendary Hulk, Springfield had other big-screen successes. During his time as an actor, Springfield appeared in several films, including the acclaimed 1976 film The Great Red Dragon.

Initially, Springfield’s career was primarily defined by his teen idol image and he worked to shed his cartoon and teen idol persona. He also starred in the ABC Saturday morning cartoon series Mission: Magic! from 1972 to 1973, and wrote original songs for every episode. The success of the series was short-lived, however, and Columbia did not renew his contract. During the final seasons, Springfield made an incredible comeback, starring in the film’s sequel, The Incredible Hulk.

During his teenage years, Springfield was not particularly fond of school. He spent his free time reading books, which led him to stay home from school. His favorite genres were science fiction and humor. Eventually, he began writing his own stories based on the stories he read.  He’d also play guitar with children in high schools to raise money for the orchestra program.

While his fame is primarily due to his singing, Springfield has had a storied career as an actor. He has appeared in a variety of films and television shows, including The Incredible Hulk and Hard To Hold. He also had a short stint on the TV pilot Nick Knight. This show was remade into the cult series Forever Knight. The Incredible Hulk is Springfield’s most popular film, so it’s no surprise that he’s still a huge fan of the comic.

In addition to his acting career, Rick Springfield has written several novels and released several albums. “Magnificent Vibration” made the New York Times bestseller list in 2014. His latest album is called Rewind, and it features a symphony orchestra. In the past, he has even performed with the Santa Monica High School Orchestra. He’ll perform the album with the orchestra for free as part of a charity event to benefit the school’s music programs.

After a few years on TV, Springfield landed a contract with RCA Records. He played the role of Dr. Noah Drake on General Hospital from 1981 to 1983. The role was a hit, and Springfield even went on tour with his band. He also topped the charts with his hit song “Jessie’s Girl.”
