The goods

Got milk indeed: Well for heavens' sake, look who's the latest star to show up with a milk mustache. It's The Hulk (Eric Bana) due to hit movie screens June 20. But for now, he's milking it, so to speak, in ads debuting this month. The first showed up in Entertainment Weekly's April 21 edition, with more due any minute now. The ad speaks mostly to male teenagers because it's estimated that 70 percent of them fall short of their minimum daily calcium requirement but wouldn't if they'd drink more milk. The ads are some of the first glimpses we're getting of Bana and how he'll look as the newest member of the superhero club.
