Bodybuilder, actor and former “Incredible Hulk” Lou Ferrigno turned 60 on Wednesday (Nov. 9).
Ferrigno was a major personality in the 1970s bodybuilding craze, twice earning the title of Mr. Universe. But it was his work as Bruce Banner’s angry, green alter-ego on the TV series “The Incredible Hulk” that made him a star. The show ran from 1977-82 and totaled 82 episodes.
Since then, Ferrigno has continued both acting and bodybuilding. He’s guest starred in numerous series including “The King of Queens,” “Reno 911!” and “Chuck.” He was even on “Celebrity Apprentice.” On the bodybuilding side, Ferrigno has his own line of fitness equipment and books and apparel.
Of course, we couldn’t do this post without checking in on our favorite Twitter feed Drunk Hulk to see what he has to say.
“LOU FERRIGNO TURN 60 TODAY! MORE LIKE 60 TURN LOU FERRIGNO! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO FAVORITE STUNT DOUBLE!” he writes.
