I LOVE Tim Roth.  He’s deliciously evil.

Actor Tim Roth, who rose to cult stardom as “Mr. Orange” in Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs, is going green for Marvel and Universal’s forthcoming The Incredible Hulk.

Roth will play the bad guy, Emile Blonsky/Abomination, in the movie, the actor’s reps told The Hollywood Reporter today. Blonsky is a vicious mercenary who is exposed to gamma rays and becomes even stronger than the Hulk.

Incredible Hulk screenwriter Zak Penn recently told the press that the villain would not actually be called Abomination in the film.

“The villain will not be called the Abomination out loud in the film because it’s a silly, silly name,” says Penn. “It just is; it’s so hard to work in. ‘Hey, what should we call that guy?’ ‘He’s an abomination!’”

Roth, who next stars in Francis Ford Coppola’s Youth Without Youth, joins Edward Norton as Bruce Banner/The Hulk and Liv Tyler as Betty Ross in the comic book flick. Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2) is directing.

The new movie’s story unfolds when the pursuit for The Hulk heats up, sending Bruce Banner on the run attempting to cure his condition before his pursuers capture him.

The Incredible Hulk will start shooting next month in Toronto for a June 13, 2008 release.
