      " 'He might have been a little thin because he was under a lot of stress training for the tour,' Ferrigno, who played the Hulk in 'The Incredible Hulk' TV series, said in an interview that aired on 'Good Morning America' today. 'But when I put him through the routine and everything, I mean, it was just fine. I mean, very energetic.' "

      A very different view of Jackson's health comes from Halperin: "Ian Halperin, who is publishing a new biography on the 'Thriller' singer, wrote in December that Jackson had only six months to live. He said Jackson suffered from a rare form of lung disorder." 06-09
