John Ary From Austin Comic Con 2012: Lou Ferrigno!!


John Ary here with one more Q&A session from last weekend's Austin Comic Con.  
Today, we've got Lou Ferrigno talking about his life as The Incredible Hulk, what it is was like to show up on Mr. Rogers wearing the green makeup, and why CBS changed Banner's name from Bruce to David.

At the beginning of the discussion, Lou showed us the pilot for his new sci-fi series Liberator.  He plays a retired superhuman that the government wants taken out at all costs.  The show also stars Michael Dorn, Peta Wilson, Don "The Dragon" Wilson, and Ed Asner. Next week, we'll be debuting the new trailer for it right here on AICN.

    Pumping Iron

    by kiwicanuck

    Still, easily, the most enduring entertainment Lou has ever been in. Would have been nice to have at least one question fired his way about that one, or for that matter, his training regimen at 61. Lou's Dad: "That was easy!" Lou: "Easy? You try it!" Also saw him at the Toronto Fan Expo a year ago. Seemed cordial enough, but a bit worn out.

    Don't get me wrong, I LOVE The Lou! Hulk was a staple for me growing up and Lou can do no wrong.... That said, I'm getting sick of these 'Fear The Man' shows like Last Resort and others I cant think of right now and now, apparently, this. Look, if we're gonna start protesting again and talking about youth and standing up to the government and having sit-ins and all that old Hippie stuff, I want me some of that '60's and '70's Free Love DANGIT!!!! I don't care if women stop shaving their armpits and burn their bras, just bust out the LOVE!!!! knowwhatImean? Just sayin'

    Lucky that outfit has red and blue LEDs

    by Dubster32

    otherwise it would just have looked terrible. Legend though, and deserves better than that getup.

    Ferrigno became better looking with age!

    by albert comin

    When he's 80, he will out-pretty Brad Pitt!

  • He signed two Incredible Hulk graphic novels. Very cool!

  • Nov. 2, 2012, 11:21 p.m. CST

    Ferrigno is such a cool guy. Obviously I'm a huge

    by DavidBanner

    fan of that series. Still the best interpretation of the Hulk and Whedon is a huge fan too. Lou was great in I Love You Man and the coolest thing that King of Queens did was having Lou on the show. That and Patton Oswalt and Jerry Stiller.

  • Nov. 2, 2012, 11:21 p.m. CST

    To this day, i'll never think of the character as Bruce Banner.

    by tailhook

    Its Dr. David Banner motherfuckers. Thats how good Bixby and Ferrigno were.

    I've met Lou Twice. The first time he was cool. The second time... He's a jealous faggot. What a loser. A deaf, retarded, third-rate, steroid-ridden bodybuilder. Hey Lou... I'm better than you. You're jealous that I'm young and hot and have an asian girlfriend that's much younger than me. And nobody likes you except these nerds on aintitcool that haven't met you.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:22 a.m. CST


    by jason

    Just watch pumping iron. The way that arnold talks down to Lou. Documdrama or not. That's Lou's place. Lou is a faggot loser.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:28 a.m. CST


    by jason

    Hmmm... Come to think of it. I'm gonna sell my incredible hulk poster that lou signed at wizardworld chicago. Like my comic collection i had intended to hand it down to my children but Lou Ferrigno is a huge pussy. I don't want my children to admire a fake tough guy. A pussy like Lou Ferrigno.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:37 a.m. CST


    by BlueLando

    That was amazing. I'm sure if Lou reads that, he'd laugh too. And then go back to confirming himself for events in which people pay him lots of money to talk about his day!

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:41 a.m. CST


    by jason

    He didn't get money... But okay faggot. Go worship your heroes. I'll try not to burst your bubble.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:43 a.m. CST


    by BlueLando

    He's not my hero, and I don't worship celebrities. You probably expect a retort on the 'faggot' comment. Meh. I don't have issues with gay people or the idea of being gay, so I don't take offence to someone thinking I'm gay. Even if that persons use of 'faggot' makes me think they should just accept that they want to get fucked by a member of their own gender. You'd probably be happy if that happened.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:45 a.m. CST


    by jason

    When i say faggot i don't mean homosexual. I just mean dumb, okay? I don't think you're homosexual, alright? Hey, I was once like you. Have you ever met Lou? I liked him once, cuz he treated me with respect. When he stopped treating me with respect I stopped treating him with respect. It's pretty simple, human.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 6:45 a.m. CST

    Would it kill him to wear a green shirt at CC?

    by jason

    This site is propaganda. It should be for people that want to be movie buffs but the reality is that it's just an extension of the corporate, vatican, white, jesuit, zionist, fascist-controlled propaganda. Live free or die. Be American.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 7:50 a.m. CST


    by jason

    Oh. And as usual I can tell that you're not that smart. Like most humans you demonstrate that you're inferior. You can barely use the english language. Inferior minds crying to me but they're so stupid they can barely spell properly. I know you're dumb. That's why you take offense to my comments. You should just keep your mouth shut. The more you speak the more you confirm that you're an inferior being.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 8:14 a.m. CST

    So 'Faggot' means dumb now?

    by donkey_lasher

    is that like kids calling something gay because they think it's stupid? And a faux God complex makes you look like a douche, not an intellectual.

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 8:15 a.m. CST

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 8:18 a.m. CST


    by jason

    I'm getting close to bed-time. I'm sure you haven't met Lou and I'm sure you have no answer. So, consider this my preliminary response. Inferior being. I GUARANTEEE I'm smarter than you Better looking than you Stronger that you So fuck off insect with your propaganda and lies and media. Cuz you don't have sex. And no one likes you and you're ugly. Case closed.

    I post all over the internet for fat, loser people that have no sex life to view. So keep watching. Don't believe a thing you see or hear. Especially from a bunch of red-headed loser movie buffs. this site is compromised. I'm backing freedom. If someone is arguing with me then it means they don't like the bill of rights or the constitution

    Lou is hardcore anti-immigration

    by PlasticBallAndChain

  • Nov. 3, 2012, 10:53 a.m. CST

    He also charges relatively a lot for his autograph

    Wow, guess I was wrong. Just read he eats puppies, too.

  • I prefer the name David, but that's just because that was my first exposure to the hulk. Lou seems like a great guy- this was a really entertaining video.

    Illegal immigration, not IMMIGRATION
